This Just In...

When you use your credit card, the item being purchased isn't actually paid for, per se. It's sort of on loan. The credit card, as it turns out, isn't money. It tallies up all the things you "buy" with it and keeps track. It just sits around collecting debt for you and one day in the distant future a ginormous bill for all the things you "paid for" with the credit card will arrive. And if you don't pay that bill the credit card people get very very angry. Very angry.

True story.

*blank stare*

Seriously. Who knew?
