This doesn't mean that you still won't end up with a closet (or a house) full of stuff and mountains of debt. It just means you'll be able to justify larger mountains of debt to yourself if you're not fiscally responsible.

I realize that you live in more of a rural environment so I can understand (but not condone) what UPS did, but that said, I am surprised at how much trouble people on SF have with couriers in general. I guess one of the benefits of living in a soulless suburb is that courier service is more stable and secure.
