My Last 5 Dollars…

Published September 26, 2013 - 0 Comments

I stood at the counter holding a $5 bill with both hands.

“This is seriously my last 5 dollars… Can I get three items from the value picks menu with this, or is that too much?”

How sad is that?

My bank accounts are drained.  My credit card is $500 over the limit, and I’m only $5 away from needing to perform illicit sex acts in a dark alley for food. OK, maybe that’s a little extreme… but the point is… wow.  I’m over extended.

It should be a wake-up call, although I’m not convinced that the message has sunk in.  I need to reverse this negative cashflow now, before I end up in even worse dire straits.  Hey, didn’t they write a song about that?  Money for nothing, and chicks for free.

Sounds perfect.
