    It is amazing to me how many people leave such negative comments on a story
    like this. Instead of boasting about how much “you saved” and how stupid
    everyone else is that didn’t do what you did, how about teaching kids how
    not to make the same mistake. How about volunteering at your church to
    teach money saving techniques. Posers….

    I don’t get these idiots. I’ve had a credit card since I was 18 and never
    paid a dime in interest. You people are some real suckers

    Hey! I am a rocket scientist. The whole reason for her situation is the
    choices she made while in college. Keeping up with the Jones’ is always a
    fatal flaw.

    I know a guy who used his credit card to buy a house before…Exactly like
    normal home loan except he’s paying 50%interest rate 🙂

    @Mokothar Very very true!!! Idk what’s so hard about controlling spending
    habits. I have an Amazon credit card to build up my credit and that’s it.
    But multiple credit cards?! I have no sympathy for this girl…..

    I agree with you fully, a lot of what students don’t understand is basic
    common sense. But shes not a rare case I know tons of students doing this!

    She reminds me of my dad. My dad is a barber. And he has $70,000 credit
    card dept. And he said as soon as i get a credit card to let him borrow it.
    I rather kill myself and enjoy doing it.

    Spring break and eating out with friends … oh yeah and some materialistic
    stuff as well *FACEPALM* People: I’m about to graduate college with a
    degree in biochemistry and 2 grand in my bank account to get me through my
    first months of renting/employment debt free as well. Why? Because I worked
    hard and spent less than I made. Aint exactly rocket science.

    @crumcon Regarding the computer a more dependable (even if expensive) one
    may be a sound long-term investment rather than a cheap one. Why? Well if
    you say pay $1000 or so for a more expensive one where’s a high chance that
    it lasts for five or more years. Buy a cheap one and you’ll have to re-buy
    it every year or so because they break down regardless of how careful you
    are. The cheapest ones I’ve seen are around $250-$300 ($1250 to $1500 spent
    over the same time frame). Do the math.

    With the new credit card law, you must be 21 years old or older. If between
    18 to 20 you must show proof of incoming and/or co-sign with an adult 21
    years or older. Also high schools are having students learn about credit. I
    believe the new rules and the new classes will make people learn better how
    to use credit and budget their money! 🙂

    @tbutters321 Try 80,000! Here in NY, the average cost of a year of college
    (including room and board) is about 20,000.

    wealthy neighborhoods and see early 2000s hondas on the driveways that says

    “Can you afford that?”

    In hindsight: You should’ve waited a couple more weeks on this one because
    Linkara made it dated very shortly after you uploaded.

  19. CyberDragon19

    You forgot that moment in the Top 11 dumbest Spiderman moments, but I guess
    it was too short.

    He also had this moment in the screen junkies anniversary. (sorry if my
    spelling is wrong) :)

    my reaction too.
