Sounds like you will enjoy yourself during and after you get home, with vacation memories. For some people, they may be making payments on a vacation
they can no longer remember.
The American economy has been on shaky ground for some time. The advice given to us after 9-11 to counteract its effects, "Go shopping!" was equal
to saying, "Go into debt further!" for many Americans. The blind faith in less gov't regulation and oversight succeeded where Osama Bin Laden
failed to bring down this economy.
By spending money debt-free you are helping this nation's economy. Now is not the time to do a 180 and not spend.
The person on the other end of the phone was irresponsible (and ignorant!) for saying what they said to you.
