No Tools for Me

Posted on March 13, 2008 @ 6:53 pm

The first credit card that I ever signed up for was a gas credit card. I was going to be doing some traveling one summer for work and my dad suggested that it might be a good idea to have this. He said that I could even use the card for emergency repairs to my vehicle and he would feel better if I had one.

The reason for the gas card is that it would help me out if my car broke down or if I needed fuel, but I would not be irresponsible and tempted to go and rack it up at the department store. In fact, I think I would have a lot of difficulty maxing out this card, as anything I could buy on it would bore me to death.

The funny thing is that I have a friend who has several gas credit cards and they are all maxed out. He does own a nice collection of tools, though. He is the least handy person I know and will never use the tools. He only bought them because he could and now he is in debt because of them. What a funny guy.
