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.
