negative

no~ i didn't go for a HIV test again... i'm talking about my bank balance... now this is a part of my life which i hate... it seems no matter what i do or that which i don't do... I'm always in the red... that means one thing... credit card and overdraft... argh... i hate it!

so last week i paid off my last account... AND i lowered my overdraft... AND i deactivated my credit card from my debit card... i know! aren't i such a responsible adult eh? ha!

btw~ that piece of meat has nothing whatsoever to do with this post... i just kind of drooled when i saw this pic and couldn't find a pic to describe the way i was feeling so i thought i would post the cowboy instead... isn't he just de~fucking~licious???

ok at closer inspection... he is extremely hot belly button up... with an abdomen like that he may need an emergency appendix opp soon...


erm... back to business...

i wiped away a tear when i handed the customer services clerk, Tebego, my Edgars card... he was very sympathetic and even offered me a tissue... bless his heart... then he phoned in my cancellation to head office... and Sue at head office wanted to talk to me... i know... weird!... Sue tried her damnest to convince me that summer is just around the corner and what the hell was i thinking by cancelling my account??

obviously they don't get many requests to cancel an account...

i know Sue... it wasn't easy... but it's the right thing to do... i think i made such a compelling argument that Sue will be closing her own account shortly...

i have no brakes when it comes to spending... so I'm forcing myself to spend less... cause face it, an account that you can use at different shops... lingerie, clothes, stationary (i love those)... shoes... home goodies... one word... TROUBLE!

so now it's cash or nothing...

yikes
i need a cigarette
oh shit
i have to wait another two hours before i can have one of those...


it's going well with the two hour smoking-thing btw...
*doing the sweetass jive*

You are a strong woman Sweets. I'm the same with my Edgars card and I'm also paying it off. I can't wait to cancel mine. I know. That doesn't sound right.

And I'm glad the smoking thing is going well.

Caz said...

well done sweets!! I had to cut up my truworths card. (Ok, ok fine, the band did it for me - i wasn't strong enough). Credit sucks! The credit cards are the next to go.
Cowboy has a weird vein happening on his stummy.... eish.
BTW WELL DONE ON THE SMOKING OR NOT SMOKING I SHOULD SAY!

sweets said...

jane: good for you! i can't tell you how great it felt paying that sucker off!

ex: it does suck... luckily i get paid on the 15th every month... so only another week to go!!

kyk: so where am i heading to excatly? ;)

caz: that cowboy has more than a vein going on there... it's strangely distorted and cut and weird, but still sexy yes? hehe
SMOKING LESS :)

Glugster said...

At least you'll save a bit of money by cutting down on the smokes.

leez said...

Wow, you are way more stronger than me. I closed everything except one credit card and I can't bring myself to close it.

I've only had two this morning. And no coffee.

sweets said...

glug: jip there's also that... :)~

leez: it's now almost 16hoo and i've only had 4 so far!!... and i'm not having my 16h one... i'm leaving it till 17h when i get home ;)

leez said...

Okay, so I've cut down on the cigarretes but I am now on this sugar rush.

I've had everything form jelly tots to a luch bar to a bar one. and I now have this thing for Indian food.

I need a smoke.

Slyde said...

i know its hard, but always try to keep at not having to pay credit cards, and to not have a balance.

it took me 3 years to eliminate my debt, but ive been debt free for 10 years now, and i'll never have it any other way again.

angel said...

wow sweets... i am truly impressed- really!
wow...

Tito would be proud of you. I am too.

I like to think I have no debt and then I remember that I have just bought a friggin house.

You're my hero! I can't bring myself to lower the balance on my credit cards. *sigh* One day...

Kingcover said...

Being an adult sucks! I want to be a kid again. Perhaps I'll have a nice talk with my fairy grandmother and see if she can give me my high pitched voice back and shorty shorts. Wish me luck! :-D
