A man of constant borrow

Might as well face it, says the Consumerist, you’re addicted to debt:

The headlines are screaming that America is more addicted to debt than crack. Then there are people out there who actually have a psychophysical need to spend spend spend. Are you one of them? Is your partner or friend?

I denounce my own spending habits as a matter of course, but on their list of 12 Warning Signs — seven is the point at which you start to worry — I qualify on three or four, maybe.

Although I seem to share this one with most of the financial-services industry:

1. HOPING THAT A WHITE KNIGHT IS JUST GOING TO SWOOP IN AND SAVE YOUR BROKE ASS

A feeling or hope that someone will take care of you if necessary, so that you won’t really get into serious financial trouble, that there will always be someone you can turn to.

    Your wallet sweats,
    Yout checkbook grinds,
    Another loan,
    And you’ll be MINE!
