In “Can I Get a Do-over?” (October 13, 2014), I said that I should have been adventurous early in life, and worried about paying off the bills later, when I wouldn’t mind sitting at a desk job.
Seems like some people are putting a different spin on that attitude. An article in the Post-Dispatch says that according to data given to credit.com, about 73% of American consumers had outstanding debt when they were reported dead. The average amount of debt was over $12,000 (not counting mortgage debt).
Maybe I should start living in the fast lane.
