The Consequences of Debt

You know, back in the day when I was charging up credit cards to take fun trips overseas it was all fun and games. Today there is not so much fun and not so much games.

I have mentioned before that I am in a crapload of debt. It is no joke. And being in debt has some pretty crummy consequences.

For instance, yesterday we got a big bunch of snow here. I wanted to call in. I ached to call in. I had to get ready for work though because my debt needed that money. I left and it was snowing pretty hard. It took me 45 minutes to go less than a half a mile. I had been on the road 45 minutes and could still see my apartment building. So, I made the decision to turn around and go home, but only for a few hours. See, traffic was bumper to bumper and I thought I would wait it out. So, I went home and made some money online to make up for the hours I was missing at work. It continued to snow and in a few hours I left for work. The drive went much quicker. And I stayed late to make up some time.

This morning when I got up the temperature was one degree outside. I wanted to call in. I have debt though so I had to go to work.

Being in debt really blows. You get to have loads of fun while you are racking up the debt. Then you have to suffer like with not being able to take a snow day. Ah, I can’t wait to get out of debt. And after this, it makes me want it so much more! I plan on spending the weekend looking for things in the apartment to sell on eBay or Craigslist so that I can pay down some stuff.
