Re: not fer nuthin' but "paying more than the minimum" means next to nothing
i agree, but in some cases, people need to experience it for themselves.  for instance, i didn't think it was a big deal that i didn't PIF, i just thought people were trying to be "holier than thou" on me.  i still can't afford to PIF, but now, i see the importance of getting my balances down ASAP, & not just revolving debt til the end of time.
