…what would you do?
So I was riding on the metro and overheard two college girls talking about money and their lack of it.
One was talking about her $200 in credit card debt. The other replied, “Yeah, I went way over my limit, but they took it out of my dad’s account. So he took away my credit card and now I have to pay him back to get it. Like that’s ever going to happen.”
Her companion was a bit surprised that he’d think of asking such a thing.
Of course, they’d just been talking about how unfair it was that her dad didn’t buy her a new phone and unlimited texting/internet, so she just had to pay for it herself or only use the talking plan he got her.
If your college-age daughter had a credit card (that what somehow linked to your account) and went over her limit, what would you do?
It must have been more than $20 too, because she probably could have paid that back.
