When last we saw Bossy she was contemplating her grand
mal seizure total = $62,518 debt.
Bossy decided she not only wanted to know her exact debt numbers, but she wanted to know where they lived so she could show up at their doors occasionally and yell at them.
Bossy’s first stop was the website attached to her Honda loan, which totals $3,215. Bossy and her husband bought their 2001 Honda CRV used in 2004. Bossy has always purchased used cars due to the fact that a new car loses its full value the minute it’s driven off the car lot.
To recap: on the car lot, full value. But drive it off the lot, park it on the street in front of the dealership, and put that car up for sale? You’ll never get the price you just paid.
On the other hand Bossy has always believed that safety and reliability are prudent, and when you read the word prudent, Bossy hopes you do so with a George Bush, Sr. accent.
So, yes, Bossy purchased a used car, but it’s a very good used car. One year later, Bossy’s husband purchased an even more used 1999 Honda CRV for an excellent price. He bought this Honda because the car he was driving was becoming unreliable, and Bossy’s husband has a wicked commute associated with a job that doesn’t allow for unreliable cars or lateness or vacations longer than nine days, but that’s a different post.
At the time Bossy’s husband purchased his Honda, Bossy was working every day and driving, at times, many miles from home with lots of painting accoutrement in her car. It was easy to rationalize the fact that they were a two-car family—something Bossy and her husband will have to strongly consider at this point, where this point equals poised at the top of a very
readers reader, is the bedtime story of Bossy & Her Fleet of Hondas.
Bossy’s point is that she went online and found her Honda loan amount and other information, such as the Payoff Calendar—and Bossy created a password and bookmarked this site so she could return at will, and she placed it in a new folder she will keep on her computer’s desktop: Debt Watch.
Tune in tomorrow for the exciting narrative of Bossy’s encounter with Mastercards 1 and 2!
