crazy people's 

credit card bill over 29000 dollars

I've crunched the numbers, and we're just not quite making expenses any more. We're not off by a lot, but we're going in the wrong direction. Of course, the last year was an unusually expensive 12 months. I had to buy a new car, I had to seek out the land of the Peachfront Conure, and somehow I ended up visiting five continents. So I'm probably going to have to re-open the freelancing business or start up another business, and I've been taking an online course to guide me in the right direction since I haven't seriously sought out writing business in this century. In one of the books I was recommended to read, I found someone's unpaid credit card bill, being used as a bookmark. I will now shred it, since it holds their name, address, account number, and all the rest of the embarrassing facts. In fact, I was able to ascertain that they are near the credit limit, have had at least one late fee for this year, and have managed to negotiate their interest rate down to 4.75%, which suggests that they're already in credit counseling. Not the kind of thing I'd be leaving in a public library book if I were these two. Be that as it may, I posted the small portion above as a sort of negative inspiration. People, don't let this happen to you!
