i use to think that when people put thier atm card in the machine that it gave out free money
I used to believe that as long as my parents had a checkbook and/or credit card they had money. What's funny is now my kids believe that also.
I used to believe that ATM machines just gave you as much free money as you wanted. Also, I had heard my dad talk about a "job" where he earned money. Therefor, I put two-and-two together and assumed that a "job" was where you took money out of an ATM machine. It confused me that he had to be gone eight hours a day to do this; when mom visited the ATM, it only took a few seconds. I concluded that mom was better at this "job" thing than dad, and wondered why she didn't go in his place every day.
i thought an ATM machine was something which gave free money!!
I thought that if you couldn't afford something, you could write a cheque. I confidently told my dad that when I grew up I would save all my money and just write cheques for eveything. He explained bank accounts and ruined everything.
I used to think that if you paid by cheque you did not have to pay from your savings to buy something. When my mother said she could not afford something I told her to pay by cheque.
I used to believe that as long as there were checks in the checkbook, there was money in the bank.
I too used to think that you could just write a cheque if you ran out of coin and paper money, and didn't understand how you could ever have no money. I used to say that when I grew up, I wouldn't waste my money on the things my parents bought, but would buy lots of toys and lollies instead.
I used to believe that checks were like free money, that you could write 1 million dollars on a check and you'd have a million dollars. I used to ask my mom to buy me toys, and when she told me they cost too much, I would ask her to write a check!
I thought, if checks could be used to buy anything, then why did we bother with money? We were RICH, and my parents didn't even realie it! Cha-CHING! Not sure when I learned the truth, but it was bitter reality at it's best...
i thought that my mom could write a check for anything she wanted cause it was the same as cash she wanted a red car and i couldnt figure out why she just didnt write a check for it
My brother used to believe that if you had a credit card the cashpoint gave you infinite amounts of money. You'd only needed to plot in our desired amount. No wonder why he is a bad economist...
When I was a little girl, I used to think that checks were like free money. When my mom explained to my sister and me that we were running out of money for that month, I suggested that she just write checks to pay for everything--problem solved.
