Dont go crazy with it

November 27th, 2008 at 01:41 pm

When we bought the fridge we got a card for the store to use on it, because it offered some sort of deal. Dunno what sorry, not the memory in the family, but suffice it to say it worked out cheaper.

When we received confirmation that we were approved the gal said something like "umm so you are approved with a 10 thousand credit limit, but you don't have to use it all, don't go crazy or anything, we aren't trying to add to anyone's debt."*

Now as a family with cash in the bank to buy the freezer, and then some I could be offended, but truth is I thought it was sweet. Sure she lumped me in with most of America assuming I debt, but she meant well. No need to get mad at her.

If I hadn't been busy corralling all the kids I might have mentioned our financial state.

For one thing that is like the lowest limit we have on a card, we have enough credit cards to buy a CA or NJ. No need to worry a high limit will send us on a spree, those thing expect you to pay them back...with interest!

    Wonder if her boss would approve of that?!! Good for her though.

    How odd.....Your response to the situation is excellent. I might have felt judged and would have been less charitable. Of course I guess it depends on the tone in which the message was delivered.

    She may have been one of us...not literally, but someone out of debt or at least trying to get out of debt, and been uncomfortable with the idea of putting someone else in a position to go crazy in debt. But, because of her job, she needed to do what she needed to do.

    Why? Your financial state is none of her business nor should you care what she thinks about it. @@

    I might have told her about our finances for advertising.

    CC companies advertise, why don't frugality?

    As to getting mad in general I find it safe to assume folk are not trying to be rude...but then I have no tack so I know what it is like to just say something and find you have accidentally angered someone.
