Finding Freedom

How quickly can a fool find his money again?

I currently have a whole bunch of debt. Hmm...I wonder how much I could get for my kidneys?

Something That Makes Me Happy
What is to follow is not sound financial advice as much as it just makes me happy.

I, like many people likely reading this, get three or four credit card applications in the mail per week. Now, as much as I like getting mail, this is kind of ridiculous.

So, what I decided to do is to remove anything on the application that would identify me, and then put the blank application plus whatever other random paper debris I have lying around (other card applications, old church newsletters, magazine subscription cards, etc) into the envelope. With this completed, I seal it up and mail it back to them, on their dime.

If they are going to spam me, by golly, I'm going to spam them. Plus, as the return envelopes always have postage paid (which they somehow neglect to do with the payment envelopes once you are approved), I enjoy decreasing their bottom line, if only by dimes and quarters.

I addition, I can only imagine what the person whose job it is to open the mail's face would look like.
