I'd like to say I just pay with cash, but I don't have enough self control. :doh: So I sometimes put stuff on credit.

However, I now have a case of putting "mods" on loan. :doh: I bought a 1986 NASA Porsche 944 spec race car package (donor car with all parts -- a DIY) with part of a home improvement loan. I know it's not the smartest move in the world, but I just didn't want to wait any longer to get involved with W2W racing and it was a great deal.

I tried whoring my body out for mods, but after it took nearly 4 years to save up enough for an intake... I've since reverted to more conventional means.

You just need to raise the prices. :lol:

I sell money, so I have a different view of it. Cash equals cash flow. I may go a couple months without any ash, then make $30K, then starve for another few weeks, etc. etc. If I did not use debt, I would not be able to eat. I have paid the mortgage with the other mortgage, for months, and I have also made over $40K in 5 days. In my eyes it's all the same, as long as you pay it back. If you don't then you need to buy a truck or something, then you need to give up a pound of flesh to a guy like me. Failing to use credit is a more deadly mistake than carefully abusing it, if that makes any sense at all.

cash/debit card... i make it rain

LOL ... off topic.. but i was at a party last weekend and these dude made it rain (throwing money in the air for those that dont know)... then dude picks the cash up.. doesnt that defeat the whole purpose of making it rain?.. ehhh

back on track

lucky for me, my expenses are less than a third of my monthly income.. so i after i pay my car/loans/rent i have enough cash to play with..

but dating multiple random women doesnt help either...

:headshake:

im still paying for my Z's monthly loan and keep aside another budget for maintenance/fuel/mini-mods. If i get short of cash, i just borrow from close relatives or my gf. i've had enough of credit card already - it's as tempting as a hot chick in thongs.

When I was still active duty I'd use cash and/or credit. Sometimes I'd find an awesome sale/deal and use the credit card and pay it off. But when I did have the cash I would. Now when I took this contract job and started my JWT build everything was cash unless it was purchase over the net. I refuse to use my debit card over the net while in Kuwait. I've had my checking acct hacked into once and living w/o a debit card sucks!!!

I was at the Kuwait International Airport and wanted some cash to spend at the Food Mall there .. specifically the Cinnabon outlet. Anyhoo .. I go to a ATM/Bank machine and insert my card. After all .. among the list of cards accepted is my Vista. I go to punch in my pin .. and . . uh-oh. I don't remember my pin number off the top of my head but instead .. it spells out a word. Normally .. ATM machines in the US have the same Letter/Number arrangement as your telephone. Simple. Punch in the remembered word. Not so in Kuwait. Ha. I luckily, one of the guys had a cell phone and saved me. Too funny. Intersting .. We call our numbers 'Arabic numbers'. I can see where we got the 1,2,3 and 9 (the 2,3 are simply rotated left 90°) .. and the 6 became our 7.. curious how we got the others. Their 4,5,7 and 8 obviously look like our E,V,O and A. I suppose somewhere . someone substituted characters that worked.
