Line of Credit

At my disposal…

Pre-Anastasia, Christian Grey liked his women this way. I like my money this way.

My line of credit is a loan I have all set if I get in a pickle. Before it’s crunch time, I’m able to negotiate the amount and associated interest rate.

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

When I withdraw the $$, only then do I pay interest.

Use responsibly. Use a safe word.

Margin of Safety

This stock (or this boy) was not what I thought it (he) was. Glad I didn’t put all my eggs in one basket.

Best ATM Practices

I try my hardest to never use a corner ATM.

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

I reserve my fabulous outfits for only fabulous places, and a street corner ATM is not fabulous.

The world does not need to see me open my wallet, take out my card, type in my pin, withdraw cash, take back my card and place both back in my purse.

Now, how to avoid the always busy bar ATM: plan ahead, have a friend spot you, or dine-n-dodge.

For the record I have never done the latter, but my mind is whirling with all the bad things that could happen.

Yes, bad things can happen anywhere. Even at an inside ATM. But, at least there are other bank patrons.

Plus, if I throw the culprit through the window that will cause quite a scene. Hy-ya!
