Yes, I said a dirty word or name. CBS showed a man who works as a debt collector on TV. He must be brave or have been honorable. From some of the comments I’ve heard from family and friends, most of the debt collectors are not nice in the slightest.
Rude, sarcastic, arrogant, impatient, argumentative are all descriptions that have been used to describe those who have been contacted. Sometimes things happen and people get in over their heads. We hear of many these days who are in trouble money-wise. Many people are honest and will make efforts to pay back what is owed. Yes, there are some who won’t or can’t. I’m giving the benefit of doubt here, I’d hate find out that the USA has dishonorable buyers in it that outweigh the honest ones.
The last thing that is needed is someone who will go out of their way to make a bad situation even worse. Our country is going through tough times. Not as bad as other countries, or like it was in the ‘Great Depression’. Maybe the tax rebate checks will help out some of the more honorable among us, and the debt collectors can try to be polite.
