Credit Cards 101


… or a child’s take on credit cards!

Four year old Elsa carefully adjusting a full deck of playing cards into the waist of her skirt asked Emma if she liked them. Before Emma could answer I asked Elsa if she knew what they were. “Yes”, she said “they are my credit cards!”

A little taken aback I asked her if she knew what credit cards are.

“Oh yes” she said, “they help you do things – like drive.”

“Well” I said, “you must be planning on doing a lot of driving then.” She just grinned and patted them tenderly.

7 yr old Emma piped up and said proudly: “I KNOW what credit cards are.”

“So what are they?” I asked.

“Well,” she said, taking in a deep breath; “They have money on them and they help you not waste your dollars when you buy stuff…” (I wish that was so – don’t you?!)

Elsa then walked out of the room admiring her wad of credit cards still tucked in her waist band.
“I just love, love, love my credit cards. I just have a TON of them!”

I hope her husband is very, very, very rich or he is going to have a very difficult life keeping her in the “style” she seems to be acquiring!!
