Back to the grind and even a plastectomy

Work these days has been, well, hectic. Apart from my 40-hour a week job, which is crazy right now, it seems that everyone I know wants me to work on a project for them. In my line of work, when it rains, it definitely pours.

I’m not complaining in the least. We’ve been making huge strides in our debt payoff that I welcome the work. As a matter of fact, a celebration is in order and you’re invited. Monday morning, we sent our final payment to Chase Visa. We are officially done with the whole credit card, and it is awesome!

For those of you that don’t know anything about MoneyTalk, we don’t care much for plastic. And, now that we are officially credit card free, we are busy conjuring up creative ways to do a plastectomy. What’s a plastectomy? Simple. It’s cutting up credit cards. But, having connections to some heavy firepower, we have several options and they all sound most appealing. We figure we might ask some of you to help us decide how to finish off Chase.

So here are the options:
1. Target practice: Tape the cards (there are 2) to target sheets and shoot them either with a hand pistol or 12-gauge shotgun.
2. Fire in the hole: Tape the cards to target sheets and riddle them with a pistol AND then strap the remains to a hand grenade.
3. Now we’re sizzling: This one’s simple. Dip the cards in an acid bath.
4. I love you to pieces: Just stick them in a shredder already.
5. You cut like a knife: Come on already…just grab the scissors and cut away.

Of course, if you don’t like any of the options, we’d love some suggestions. And, by all means, be creative.

We’re planning to record our plastectomy and send the video to Dave Ramsey. We thought he’d enjoy it.

    My Plastecomy is one I’ll have to find a scrapyard. I’m planning on putting my credit cards into the glove compartment of a car, just before it gets crushed down into one of those cubes. and taping it for the show.
