Paying The Piper

Have you ever taken out a payday loan? I find it so funny how people who are so desperate when they need one that they will sign the papers without really realizing that they will indeed have to cover the check they just wrote! Then when it comes time to pay the piper all they do is complain about how high the fees are. Do they not remember the happy dance they did last week? Our neighbors have been dying for cash flow the past few weeks, and were truly relieved to find this opportunity to get the cash they needed and not have to pay immediately. However, today--when the payment came due--it was nothing but non-stop pessimistic blather! Be happy someone was there to save your butt last week--and try harder to budget a little better next time! SHEESH!!

These should be illegal. Lending money is one thing. Usury is another. So sorry about your neighbors. Hope they can pull out of this.
