I just had a flashback to 1991 and living in a house with 4 comp lit Phd candidates.

They're offering commentary like others are able to do but I don't see their commentary as being of a different and superior nature, hence to be privileged. The articulate ones usually have a better ability to be received in a positive light but that is not the same thing.

LAGuy: We're quick to put forward statements done through language versus visual/aural/etc expression but that is our own bias. It makes sense that someone working in music would express themselves better using that medium than writing. I'm leaving aside a purely linguistic problematic (language constantly referring to language and not to "reality").

Guys, don't forget that having a good (or better) credit history affects a lot more than how many sweaters you can kop today. It will affect your ability to obtain a home loan, car loan, etc. in the future. Get a small limit card, keep a small revolving balance on it (~$50), make all of your payments on time, and never close it. This is free advice for the guys that have said that they don't need/don't have/have never had a credit card.

On a similar note, I was at a post office the other day and there was a mom and her grown, 20 year old daughter there. They were waiting to for a passport appointment (she lost her passport). When it was their turn, the daughter is asked for some form of ID, and she says that she didn't bring any. The mom loses her shit and the store clerk asks the daughter if she has an actual government ID. The daughter says no. The clerk asks if it's at home, and the daughter says, "no, I've never needed or had a government ID." She only had a passport (which she lost) and her birth certificate. Two totally casual forms of ID that you can just carry around and lose. And she was completely bereft of any appreciation for the conundrum into which she had just per herself. I just stood there watching all of this unfold, thinking just how fucking stupid this person was.

I paid for school using my credit card. I had good credit and low APR that a loan would not be able to match. Basically that was the only running debt i incurred.

This part really worries me. I think SF needs to have a "financial decisions" or "finance" thread where some of these guys can get advice. Everything is credit based in the USA so it is concerning that some people avoid credit cards purposely. No one is saying buy house or car right now but think about your future when you spend.

Regarding the 2nd part Speechless!

the idea that credit is important is not a revelation and it's not SF's job to teach you what your parents should have when you were 14. what's next, a sex ed thread?

A person can drown is less than two inches of water.

My parents definitely have not taught me anything about credit, and I'm pretty sure my mom was in major debt when she was younger due to overspending on multiple CCs

CC talk makes some sense in a forum dedicated to buying ultra expensive luxury goods, especially when a number of the members are successful professionals who have something to contribute to the subject
