Discuss Credit Card Debt With Others?
||Thu, 04-25-2013 - 11:31am
Forget politics and religion. When it comes to talking with people we’ve just met, a new study finds that the most uncomfortable topic of discussion is how much we owe in credit card debt.
About 85 percent of people surveyed on behalf of CreditCards.com said they’d be somewhat or very unlikely to discuss credit card debt with someone they’d just met.
That makes credit card woes more taboo than any other topic the respondents were asked about, including their salaries, mortgage payments, weight, health problems and love life details.
This doesn't surprise me too much. I certainly wouldn't discuss finances at all with someone I just met! What do you think? Would you be more likely to discuss your weight or health details with someone before discussing your credit card debt? What about with a close family member or friend?
