    Don't Want One

    I have never had a credit card although one of the companies or banks, whoever is in charge, sent me one when I was ten or eleven. Even then I was tempted to dial the toll-free number on the back of the card but I thought about it, what good would that do because at that time, I...

    Debt-o-phobe

    I've never had a credit card. I was never in debt in my life until last month; I had to take out a loan if I wanted to finally make it to university. But as soon as I can get that paid off, I never plan on going in debt again. It's just not worth it for me. Sure, it makes s...
