    We still use our credit card for the convenience but it gets payed off each month. I actually get payed to use it so it is a win for me. I just noticed that I have another $200.00 worth of points accumulated.

    I know that it is hard for some folks to curtail the spending when it comes to credit cards because it is so easy to overspend with one and if not payed off each month those interest charges can add up fast. I just use it as one more tool to help keep my spending under control.

    Sadly I have been hacked twice during the 6 years I've been buying vape related stuff. One time I knew how it happened. A supplier actually fessed up to being hacked and I got caught in it. The second time I have no idea. :(

    oops, looks like I have wandered away from what this thread is all about.....sorry 'bout that.

    Nope, Mattiem you really haven't. Credit cards are the tool of the devil when it comes to shinyitis, I'm fairly certain :) Hmmm... manifesto. :)

    There is a listing of 'ban-able offenses' around here somewhere.......pretty sure shinyitis is NOT one of them.

    If I remember right when I dumped mine the rate was something like 10%. If you were late it jumped to 12. I thought that was crazy. What are they now... I have seen 18% regular rate, something like 23% if you are late. To me that is just psychotic and what kills me is they shovel the things to kids in their teens.

    OK, I'm ranting...

    Chia pets :lol::lol::lol:, so crazy crazy. I refused to allow one in the house (as a youth and later as an adult with a youth).

    My son had many pet rocks, but he found them outside. After a while, when the pile got big enough, when he'd bring me one, I would tell him I would put it on the pile, then take it outside.

    When I told him that (recently, I think??) as a 20 year old, he was STILL very indignant about the situation, but man, you can only have so many pet rocks before you fill up the house. The husband has a few, on the mantelpiece, as well.

    I do.not.understand, but get pet rocks that are free at least!!!!!!!!!! :)

    So, I have my beloved Therion.
    I want this new dotMod mech sqonk.

    I have probed and probed and come to find that I'm likely to lose parts I don't want to lose if I order it.

    But there is Xmas money coming.

    My plan is to get her something nice. See we've never given each other gifts in the 10+ years we've been together. I give her something nice, she gets me nothing, I say it's ok, wait a day or two...then maybe mention the mod...

    @stols001 No, actually at one time they sold them in stores. In a silly little box. And people actually bought them.

    Twenty four years for me. I look at the bright side, at least I am not getting coal.

    I've seen the idiot pet rocks, and I have wondered about them. I know what they are, I just seemed to have collected a kid that never coveted the "pet rock" he wanted to find his own, I guess.... It was a serious problem at one point, although kind of cute :)

    @stols001 I think all kids go there at some point and some adults. Actually I still have a crystal skull collection somewhere in the house.
