It’s sometimes difficult to get back into the swing of things after tax season, i.e., it’s difficult to resume normal life, especially when my version of normal includes things like getting organized to live four months off the grid in bush Alaska. I
also difficult to pick up blogging again, so to get back to posting again, I figured that an ice breaker might help, and the best ice breakers always involve nudity, imho. So here’s one for you: would you rather have an auto loan or go to work naked?
This is relevant to me, not simply as an ice breaker but also because I’m still feeling the sting of buying a car last fall. I bought it outright, cash, no loan, but even though I had saved up, it’s a financial pinch, given that I only have seasonal income.
I’d have to agree with those who said that an auto loan was more painful than going to work naked. I’ve never done the latter but I have had an auto loan, and I gotta say that I’m with the 30%.
Another way to frame the question: would you go to work naked in exchange for having your auto loan wiped out? I suppose this basically amounts to a free car, so let’s phrase it yet another way: would you go to work naked in exchange for a free car?
I’d have to say “yes,” such is my loathing of auto loans and of debt more generally. More importantly, I’ve bared my soul and now have my first post-tax season blog post to show for it.
