    in the 1990s when I was paying off my student loans, one of the loans carried 10% on it.  It was another representative that had made a deal with the banks for student loans.  Unfortunately, if I made the exact payment it only covered the interest and the actual principle on the loan wasn't even touched with my payment.  I had to make double payments in order to try and bring the loan down.  It was insane.  Then once the loan was paid off it was announced in the news that this was a bad deal made by Washington and they were no longer going to allow student loans to have a 10% interest rate on them.  Great, that they turned it around, but in the meantime I was screwed out of a lot of money.

    Then, when all my loans were paid off, I got sick and screwed by the medical system and insurance.  And I wonder why sometimes I have a really bad attitude.
