Crane Your Neck To The Rigged Deck!

Now gambling we've done, as a rhyme or two has surely been spun. But that happens right away. Did you know you could still be doing it at your bay? Rigged in every way. As there you stay.

Got a credit card.
Paid for the bigger yard.
Got a new loan.
Paid for a fancy drone.

Got another credit card.
Paid for an even bigger yard.
Got a new loan.
Paid for an even bigger drone.

Boy, this rhyme is lame.
Can make the same claim.
Which is more lame though?
The rhyme or the idiot spending the dough?

Guess what? It's a bet.
No legs broken, so don't fret.
Unless you go to a loan shark.
They may leave a mark.

You're betting you can pay it down
You're betting you won't frown.
You're betting the payments will be fine.
You're betting everything will align.

Whoops, lost job.
Whoops, you owe Bob.
Whoops, new expense came due.
Lost that bet, did you?

Now you're behind.
The goal of mankind.
Stay stuck in debt.
Play the rigged bet.

For you can get another loan.
A loan to cover the loan of your drone.
Yeah, that will help you out.
No more will you scream and shout.

Whoops, another expense is had.
Whoops, you need that latest fad.
Whoops, you bought more shoes.
Whoops, you act like it is new when you lose.

Not your fault at all.
Nope, not at your hall.
Society says you must.
In a new loan you can trust.

Pfffffffffffffft to such brain dead people any day. It is a bet at your bay. I suppose at least you get something for it. But doesn't mean you still won't throw a poor pitiful me fit. Well poor pitiful you did it to your poor pitiful self. Wasn't a merry little elf. It's a rigged deck any day and yet you still play. Just long term gambling. Know anyone who fits my rambling? Bet you know many in mass. They'll get no sympathy from my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  3. A credit card is handy,
    For so many things these days.
    As long as you keep the payments up,
    When the bill comes in to pay.

  5. I have a debit card but not a credit card. That way I won't spend money that I don't actually have. On the minus side, since I haven't had a loan for about twenty-five years, I literally have NO credit rating. Not good, not bad, but NONE.

  6. It is a gamble all right. We have a mortgage and a car loan that's almost paid off. We do use the credit cards but easily pay them off every month. When you're ordering online, credit card is the only way to go.

    1. Yeah, credit card is the way to go online

  12. We're what credit card companies call deadbeats. I used to think that meant someone who didn't pay his bills, but it's actually someone who always pays a credit card bill in full, so the companies don't make any money in interest. We figure if we can't afford it, we don't need it.

    As a corollary, there's another similar type of financial-handling that's befuddled me over the years. Advocates of this type of money management have big expensive houses and cars... for show... but in reality, they can barely afford to provide the necessities for their children or keep food on their tables. Talk about messed-up priorities.

  16. If I don't have cash, I don't need it. Though I have had to whip out the cc in an emergency a time or two, but make sure that balance is paid off asap.

  21. This brings back work. I do have some who played things right but got sick or lost their job and then used credit hoping Time would be on their side but many a time it's just people who say, "They sent me the card so..." I have people who bought a home they truly can't afford. They have a credit line which helped them create a new fence or deck or kitchen or bathroom but they also used it for Christmas, vacations etc... the average person has 6 credit cards and the total balance they owe just on the cards could be around $25,000. Then they have a $1,000 overdraft and usually a couple of payday loans and a couple of old cell phones. The total is usually $50,000 +

  22. I'd like to have a credit card to buy myself a house. A limit large enough and an interest rate of zero would be good. Hey, one can dream??? Apartment living is nice (maintenance is covered, pools cleaned for you, etc.) but I miss having my own home. :)

  23. You are so right, Pat!
    Who needs new fancy shoes
    or a better drone where he's at
    followed by singing the debt blues?

    I have compassion for people hit with a devastating disease
    or other costly things out of their control,
    but live below your means, please,
    so you with the hard times can roll.

    No fancy dress is worth the stress
