something about me

is that

i don't eat fast food
part of a dietary restriction

and part principle

so i know
this may not be
of a surprise to you-all

but it was to me

when i drove past the
jack-in-box
and
saw

that they
now

take credit cards

WTF????

so you can go into debt
slowly
while killing yourself
slowly?

how about 13.5 percent
interest on that
greasy burger and fries?
hope you're paying
those outrageous monthly costs
for health insurance
oh wait
you're paying
your health insurance premiums
with your 13.5 percent
credit cards?

you
are
screwed!

and now for something completely different: Low Post

I do fast food once in a while. A dollar chicken sandwich or burger.

And I like Wendy's fries, chili, and frostys.

But I never order whole meals, I just don't eat all that much. I don't eat unless I'm hungry.

But I don't have to think about my weight. It takes a special kind of stupid to forget to eat ya know, and I've always been a special kind of stupid ya know. LOL

Goddess........ Where have you been. Mickey D's supper club has been taking the plastic for a long time, and if the total is under twenty bucks, or something like that, you don't even have to sign a slip.

Now, I know this because my daughter tells me. She's the one with the brainwashed children, my Grandkids, who we are trying our hardest to get to think differently about so many things. I hope you and readers didn't think I ate there myself.

So, where can I get one of those 13% credit cards. Us lowlife scum with low credit scores get ripped off you know?

I too shun the fast food stuff. It tastes like cardboard soaked in cheap oil. Yuk. As for the credit card thing - this is getting out of control.

WOW!! Pay for fast food with plastic? You just have to make sure that when you go through the drive-thru, make sure to be in a Hummer or some other form of urban assault vehichle so when you have that massive coronary down the road, you can make big headlines and go out in a blaze of glory! Dare to think big!! Good Gawd, I think I need a drink.

Hey AZ, I gave up fast food completely about 6 years ago, and it is all principle, a self imposed dietary restriction. (The book "Fast-Food Nation" also helped). And you know what, I found that it is just convenient to make my own meals, and much more frugal.

As far as using credit cards for junk food, I would like to see them limit transactions to debit cards and gift cards. But then again, it's one bad habit feeding another bad habit, what's the diff, going into health and wealth debt at the same time.

I like the convenience of not writing a check at stores.

I do fast food sometimes because I'm addicted to burgers and chocolate shakes. But then, my diet is basic meat and potatoes, a diet some might consider suicidal. That's what happens when grow up in the Midwest where babies cut their teeth of hunks of raw steak.

Slide your card at Jack in the Crack?

I would just as soon share my cat's food than eat that slop at those fast-food chains. Talk about NOT needing a colonic to clean you out....Oh.My.God.

I normally don't touch the stuff, but when I DO take my girls there, I use my debit card. I use it for everything else, so it's a natural. But, of course, I'm not paying interest on THAT one. . .

Fortunately for us here in Sodom by the Sea, fast food is a might hard to find. I haven't eaten in a McDonalds in about a decade.

Hwwwwwwweeewwww!

Taco Bell takes plastic too. Maybe there's a beauty to all of this. No one wants to die with a lot of money in the bank. Maybe junk food for plastic helps your fastfood demise arise about the same time as your bankruptcy from usury?

well, all things in moderation, goddess. Yin-Yang. I've got nothing against an occasional (once a month, tops) fast-food meal. If people patronized them in this fashion, there wouldn't be one on every corner to taunt our arteries.

I don't know if this is national, but I just saw our local McD now has all the latest DVD rentals for $1/night. The catch? You have to come INSIDE to rent & return ... so you guessed it, while you're there of course you're gonna get another cholesterol-busting shake & fries. ~~ D.K.
