Are You Serious?

While doing my coming home from school ritual of getting on the Internet to check blogs, email, Facebook, Myspace, and (see another "Bad Mother" strike against me), I read some news on www. that I found to be quite ridiculous. Oprah Winfrey's mother owes a store money to the tune of like $175,000. This store is suing her because she has failed to pay them, and hasn't met the $2000 minimum monthly payment. The kicker is that Winfrey's mother is counter-suing the store because they raised her credit limit; which in turn made her spend more money. Supposedly they'd had problems with her being indebted to them before, and it was ruled that the woman was not allowed to have a store credit card anymore. But, can you imagine..... you elevated my credit limit, which made me spend more money, so I am going to sue you?? I guess that means that I can start suing all of the credit companies that raised our limit, because they made us spend the money and become more in debt. Seriously, what is up with America these days?
