  1. The Rush Limbaugh one made me throw up in my mouth a little. Not because of the “eating human flesh” bit. No, I was okay with that. It was the “former President” part that made me gag.

    Well, that and the credit card bill.

  2. Lordy! And i thought my 2400 in credit card debt was a lot. I paid 2 off with my tax return and am planning to do the same with the last 3. Credit blows. And all my cards are cut up into nice small pieces sitting somewhere in my closet as a reminder to stop buying crap i dont need.

    Seriously… Pay the extra bit every month. Im throwing every extra buck at my bills to get them to GTFO.

  3. It sure is painful to see, I am not opening mine because of the new laws. I don’t want to know. Also, it is just stupid that people can’t figure out paying more equals less time owing money. That is more annoying than the balance.

  4. I think its SO depressing that they started putting that on credit cards. I’m sure its a good thing and I understand the purpose but MAN. I was feeling good about getting mine down to about 1200 bucks and then CitiBank tells me its STILL going to take me eons to pay the fucker off if I only make the minimum payment.

    Ugh. Credit cards are evil.

  5. Dude, that sucks! Pay that damned thing off already. After Anissa recovers and no longer needs our donations, let’s make “Avitable’s bill” the next big internet donation kitty. I gave her $100. I’m willing to give you, like, $10 (or dinner when you come up in April).

    I know the pain of this one all too well. My suggestions, don’t scroll down to that little bit of info any longer. It’s too painful.

    Not only am I trying to dig myself out of the debt I accrued while unemployed last year, but my boyfriend is also trying to shovel himself out of the hell that is 30,000 of credit card debt.

    It’s like financial nazi germany at my house every day.

    But without all the hand signals and evilness to human nature, of course.

  7. If Rush gets elected anything but head librarian of the re-opened Alcatraz correctional facility, I will move far away from his reach.

    Also, I think maybe Emma will lead the new Internet sensation “Support group for the children of the parent blogger generation” and my daughters may help with that. The SGCPBG will be quite large too with many global chapters.

  8. Seeing that makes me glad I cashed out some retirement funds (while there was still money in them) to pay off most of my post-divorce debt. I know it was crazy and I need to save for retirement, but I know I’ll work until the day I die and it wasn’t worth the stress or the interest.

  9. I can think of worse things than Insanity by Cheesecake.
    But holy hannah, that bill! I was all “You don’t scare me with your Rush-Limbaugh/potty-mouth-robot prognostications, Adam Avitable!!!” then I got to the bill and almost peed my pants.

  10. Ouch. Mine might as well have a balance that high, though, what with being unemployed at present and having no money for the minimal payment of $100-plus/month. Got a telecommute job for me? 😉 J/K! I wish you and all with c.c. balances (and myself too!) luck in reducing the debt quickly.
