Around about the third week of January the soft thud of credit card envelopes echoes around the country. OK, so most people get their bills online but we don’t let the facts get in the way of a good bit of imagery.
Christmas may be a distant memory now but the credit card companies don’t forget that easily. This week we’ve seen loads of people go to Twitter to bemoan their January credit card bills…
Many were worried about looking at their bill:
I hate that “your credit card statement is ready to view online” text

Those that did summon up the courage to open their statements didn’t always have a happy experience:
*opens credit card statement & promptly passes out*

It was never going to be a happy moment when my credit card statement for December arrived

Clearly some people don’t mind having a joke on Twitter about their credit cards. But if you think your credit card is no laughing matter then it’s much better to get help rather than tweet about it.
