It was on last 2 week when I attended this birthday dinner of my Dad’s friend. Besides karaoke-ing, they also had some gaming session where the MC asked 3 people, whom own (at least) 10 credit cards, to go on the stage. I thought it was quite impossible but these 2 middle age uncles and 1 middle age auntie went on the stage and shown us their credit cards. Wow.. I wonder what do they do with so many credit cards and how much debt could they have.
On the other side, I own zero credit cards. Really. My pink purse has so little card that I think it doesn’t look like a purse. I only have: IC card, the one and only atm card, student card (I know, it’s been 2 years since I graduated from college. But I have this *cough cough* baby face, some people think that I’m still a student. That means I can get discount at some places by showing my student card that has no expired date. Hehe..), driving license (which is pretty useless) and NPWP card (taxing card, I even photostat a few pieces, ready to go overseas anytime. lol.).
I tried to apply for a credit card on my first 3 months of working, cause it had so many promotions such as: Buy-1-Free-1 ticket at Cinema 21, 15% discount at Pizza Hut, etc. But it wasn’t approved, probably because my salary was not high enough and I had too little saving in my account back then. After the rejection, I never bother to apply anymore.
Besides, whenever I go to the mall and come across a credit card counter, the salesman never wants to approach me but my brother whom is still underage to apply for a credit card. Oh well, they just miss a potential client cause they misjudge the cover.
Now, if you have 10 credit cards or more, please raise your hand.
