My friend recently applied for a credit card, and I was a little worried about how he was going to pay for it. He had a job and a steady income, but he was always short on cash. I thought he was going to be responsible and pay off the card each month, but it turns out he had a rather ingenious idea.
He asked his girlfriend’s mother to pay for the card each month. I was concerned about this and tried to talk him out of it, but he was adamant that it was the right thing to do. He said that his girlfriend’s mother was wealthy and it would be no problem for her to pay the bill. He further argued that it would be a great way to show her how much he appreciated her financial support.
I still wasn’t sure if this was a good idea. I was worried that his girlfriend’s mother would not be happy about it and would feel taken advantage of. I told him that he was taking a risk and that if his own mother found out, it could cause a lot of tension between them. He shrugged it off and said that he was sure it would be fine.
In the end, his girlfriend’s mother agreed to pay for the card. I was taken aback. I couldn’t believe that she had agreed to such an arrangement. I asked my friend why he thought she had agreed and he said that she saw it as an investment in him and their future together. He said that she trusted him to be responsible and make good use of the card.
I was still skeptical, but I could see that my friend was relieved. He said that this arrangement was a great way for him to build up his credit score and that he was grateful to his girlfriend’s mother for helping him out.
I still think it was a risky move on his part. I’m not sure how his girlfriend’s mother would feel if she ever found out. But I’m glad that it worked out for him in the end. He is now able to use his credit card without worry and build up his credit score. I just hope that he takes this responsibility seriously and makes sure to pay off his balance each month.
