A little over a decade ago I was in a similar position, struggling to keep myself afloat. I was in financial trouble and the only option I had (or thought I had) was to go back to school and get a new degree. I had already started working to try and make sure I had the means to pay off my loans, but I never really had any luck there.
The other day I had to get my car fixed and my parents and my friends didn’t want to pay me the $1,000 I was owed. I called 911 and they told me I had to get the car fixed. One of the people that I spoke to said they weren’t going to let me go. They told me I had to go for a ride and they said that if I had to pay them for my money, I would get it as a “second ticket.
This is the part I find the saddest because I have a friend who is going to get his car fixed, but he cant afford to buy his car outright, yet he has to pay a lot of money, while I have a car that I can buy for a pittance, and will probably only be able to pay off with a second ticket.
The main thing that I think is to make money so you can get it.
I don’t get it. I have it, but I’m not going to be able to use it. Western finance is a very specific financial product that is used by a very specific group of people. Not everyone that uses it can afford it. Not everyone that uses it needs it. It isn’t even needed by anyone that uses it.
They make it through the time they can afford it, but they do it anyway, because they don’t have to put up with the price of a car that they are driving. That is what happens when we are on the money.
Not only does western finance offer no cash value, it is an exceedingly hard product to value. You can’t just compare it to the next best thing. It is impossible to value it at what it is worth, or even what it cost someone who already has it to pay. If you are in a position to buy it, you can do so, but you don’t have the money. Not only that, you can’t even get it without spending an arm and a leg on it.
Western finance is a great way to get in to the market without having to spend money on you. It may not be as safe as it sounds, but it gives you the money to buy things you never thought they were worth.
