Hmmm Friday the 13th. It got off to such a good start ... half day at work, had a beer with lunch and decided to see a movie. Got me a good war movie (Enemy at the Gate) under my belt, and came home just in time to check the mail.Only thing in the box was from Sears. Yep it was a nice, friendly note! "We have now changed our credit policies to offer more 0% financing than ever before", yada yada yada. Then the punchline: "See reverse side of this notice for details."OK they had me by then I was intrigued. Up til now the only reason there never had been a balance on my Sears card was the 21.9 percent interest. I always kept the card "just in case" I needed it anyway. So anyway, I read the reverse side. The fine print they alluded to on the first side says that they have now gone to <<< 24.9% >>> to pay for these useless goodies they offer now!!I kept my cool. Remember I had just come from a war movie. I wanted to put a .45 right through the center of the Sears card and mail it to them with their friendly notice. But I figured that would alarm the neighbors. So I cut it up into tiny strips. Turned the shredder on, and fed each tiny strip, one by one through the machine as it crunched and made wierd noises while I grinned.BYE BYE SEARS!! Useless bunch of thieves!--Paul B
