When I was unemployed for a year and a half we ran up quite a bit of credit card debt. Unfortunately even though money wasn't coming in, people still wanted to be paid. (Bastards) With the generous help of my mother, we (she) were able to pay off most of it. There is still one card with a hefty balance.
Husband called today to try to get the interest rate lowered so we could get out from under it. He was told the if we were delinquent on the account they would be happy to help, otherwise not so much.
So let me get this straight...I actually pay my bills on time like a good productive citizen and I get squat. I don't pay my bills and you bend over backward to help me?
Sometimes being a good citizen does not make any sense at all.
