Ever noticed how hard it is now to get by without a credit card?! What happened to the days when paying cash was a good thing?! “Can’t I just deposit the money into your account?” I ask her. “No, sorry” she replies. So I had to get a taxi and schlep all the way to a travel agent to get a domestic airticket. My friend Marius (whose parents worked for/grew up in the Salvation Army) told me that his father used to say: “If you have no debts, you are a rich man!” My father would have agreed with that.
