Debt, debt, debt...

A few years ago, I read an article from someone famous in Indonesia : Samuel Mulia about having debts... 

Here let me translate my favorite lines:

IF YOU MANAGE TO HAVE DEBTS, THEN YOU HAVE TO MANAGE TO PAY THE DEBTS. DO NOT SPILL SO MANY USELESS REASON FOR NOT BE ABLE TO PAY, FOR GETTING PARDON DAN LET OTHERS TORTURED BECAUSE OF IT. IF YOU HAVE NEVER THINK ABOUT THE RISK OF HAVING DEBTS, WHY IN THE HELL YOU WANT OTHERS TO THINK AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU? IT IS BEING CALLED SELFISH! 

I guess this is also goes to the people who have 7 credit cards and keep on hiding behind someone else back to avoid the responsibility to pay. Many people are like that. They can not stand not to live in style. So they started to buy everything to match up with the fashion. By using credit cards, it seems you can have everything for free. Well, the reason why the card was called credit card, and not free card, meaning that you have to pay them within times as per agreement. You can not pay full, there will be interest. And suddenly from only using 100,000 it can develop to 150,000 and soon will be 200,000.

The recent news here about the release of an elderly woman after being jailed for two years. This woman was jailed because she was charged with fraud for million of Rupiahs. Her ungrateful (bastard) son asked her to sign a paper which she claimed do not understand about. This paper later being used to against her and she has to deal with her son’s wrong doings.

She was sentenced few years and after two years our president gave her pardon and she finally released.

Again, for heaven sakes... If you have debts please don't just ran off and leave the mess for your family to deal with... 
If you think you can' take it, imagine how will your old parents have to deal living in prison for something that they did not do...


(FOR THAT UNGRATEFUL SON, I DO HOPE THE POLICE CATCH YOU SOMEDAY...!!)
