THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Just raise everyone’s credit limits


— I have a problem that could be solved very easily if my bank would just raise my credit limit. I mean, I don’t bring in enough money each month to make ends meet so I need to borrow more money so I can pay for my lifestyle. It is my bank’s fault that I can’t pay my bills because they refuse to raise my credit limit. How stingy and selfish is that? They don’t care that I will have to cut back on things like my playing golf every weekend or that I will have to cancel my wife’s vacation to Africa if I don’t get a raise on my credit limit.

Just think how my wife and her relatives that she wants to take with her on her vacation to Africa will feel if I tell her she can’t go because that stingy, selfish bank won’t raise my credit limit. She and her relatives will hate that bank for being so selfish and stingy.

I’m sure my bank doesn’t want my wife and relatives to hate them so they need to just stop being so selfish and raise my credit limit so I can continue with my obligations to all the people that I have made promises to pay.

Even though I don’t pay for any of the bank’s business expenses, I think I will block off their parking lot and not allow anyone to park on bank property until they raise my credit limit. That will show them, won’t it? If I squeeze them hard enough they will capitulate to my demands and stop being so unreasonable and just raise my credit limit.

How bad would it look for the bank if I had to use my own lawn mower and mow my own grass instead of paying the neighbor boy to do that for me? Does everybody see my problem? If you do please tell the bank to stop being so unreasonable and just raise my credit limit so I don’t have to cut back on my current lifestyle.
