Getting Into Debt Because Everyone Else Is

Getting into debt, in particular crushing debt, is the dumb person's way of royally screwing something up in order to make deadly sure they are part of the team.

"Ya know, I don't think this is such a good idea but seeing as so many people are doing it, what the heck!"

How can you argue with logic like that?

At least when they are slaving away trying to pay off their debt, they can take comfort in the fact that they have a lot of company from people who are in the same boat. It's much easier to cope with something that sucks when you don't have to go through it alone.

Heck, I'm going to become an alcoholic because there's AA to help me out.

Accounting skills don't matter. Just swipe that plastic dear and it'll all be better in the morning.

How can so many people be wrong? *cough* subprime mortgage crisis...

The nice thing about a sinking ship is that you all go down together. And you all get to bitch and moan at the same time, wondering how in the world something like that could happen. Dumb people often find themselves in large groups wondering what happened. It's probably the closest they ever get to becoming smart. You can only hope they don't drown first.
