We are living in a society that is moving so fast there is no possible way to keep up with it. The United States is the most automated socitey in the world. We are also the best fed, the best educated, and the most wasteful. The key to our succsess might just depend on us living the way we have- and wasting the way we have. Whatever we can't purchase with money we can have with two simple words- "Charge It". people open their empty wallets to pull our strings of charge cards that stretches to the floor. There is one for clothing- one for gas- one for traveling- one for accomodations- one for food and ect. You can almost check into and out of the world with only the use of your credit cards. All of the stores flash their bright signs that beckon you into a life os indebtedness - you can't buy it - Charge It!
Their advertisments boast of the fantastic things that are going to appen to you when you start using their product. Or they appeal to your other side, if your sensible, that these things are necessities and without them you are depriving yourself or your family. When you're finished buying all of these "necessities" you realize that you indeed over-extended yourself. Have no fear, your friendly (or not so friendly) loan comapny will come to your rescue. For only 18% they can loan you up to $1500. That way you can pay off all of these debts and just pay a small amount each month - what they fail to tell you is you will be paying that smalll amount for the next three years.
If people would not misuse charge cards they would not be at such demand. If you only udes them in case of emergancy or only charged what you could pay off at the end of each month - everyone would be better off.
These are the stories my great aunt has written. They have been in my family for generations and I feel like people should be able to read them. I'm not sure what all of them are about so it will be an adventure for all of us.
