Five Ways to Waste $276 Because Money Grows on TreePosted by Cap on June 8, 2009 |
Yeah grows on tree my ass.
If you like to waste money by being stupid, forgetful, and lazy, here’s five ways to do it.
DMV Registration Late Fee – $39
Why pay your car registration on-time? Live life “dangerously” by delaying your smog check and car registration. If you hold out long enough, the penalty fee along with your chance of getting car impounded increases exponentially!
Fix-It Ticket from Expired Registration – $10
If registering your car late isn’t cool enough, try driving around a busy city with expired registration tags, you’re bound to get noticed by a police officer or two — especially once they run your plate and realize your car is registered from a county 400 miles away!
Street Cleaning Parking Ticket – $50
Pulled over by popo too exciting for you? Just ignore NO PARKING signs or assume that the street you parked on is a-okay. For extra cool points, get yourself pull over along with a parking ticket within the span of 3 hours — Lord knows someone was able to pull that off.
Balance Transfer Snafu Finance Charges – $161
If you think using 0% APR offers and credit card arbitrate is cool, try taking advantage of 18 months offers when credit was abundant (circa 2007) and ignore/forget when your balance transfer promotion ends. From 0% to 14.95% on a $13,000 balance? Super cool.
Overdue Fees for Library Books – $16
For the less adventurous types, overdue fees from returning library books late is the perfect way to rack up dollars in stupid tax. Score bonus points by bringing books with you while on vacation abroad and neglecting to renew the books ONLINE — because we all know that extra convenience factor the library added for you is just for show.
Got other ways to waste money that wasn’t listed here? Maybe something your brother’s friend’s cousin did? Sharing (anonymously) is caring.
