Credit RatingYou can't even buy a cell phone let alone a house with bad credit. Well you used to be able to buy house with s**tty credit but those days are long gone. Most people don't realize your credit rating is like a men's room at a local bar where the bar tenders look like the chicks they take home. Companies can just write s**t on the walls and you'll never know it's there. Forgot to pay that bill years ago, it's likely on there. Some marks may actually be a mistake and it's up to you to maintain it and fix it.
- 6Most people forget that when you get a car you have to maintain it. The longer you've had it, the more visits to the shop it's likely to need. Run out of oil and the engine will work about as well as our economy. Don't keep the tires inflated they'll blow like the US real estate bubble. I've got economy jokes all night, ladies....Ladies?
