    You’re right on the point that people never intend to enter debt. When I was having problems with debt, a girl calling from one of my creditors basically lambasted me for getting into that situation. When I pointed out that being T-boned on my motorbike by a taxi driver, and then being off work for a long period, wasn’t my fault, she calmed down a bit, but it goes to show, that’s how some people who’ve never had debt problems think.

    NOW you have me wondering why people answered the way they did! I would think the “it depends” answers have a very specific instance (or two) in mind that led them to answer that way. I know I did!

    I know people that fall in both camps – those who were reckless and should have known better and those who found themselves on hard times. Saying Yes or No wouldn’t have encapsulated both camps, so I was only left with one answer option. 🙂
