Pronunciation: KREH dits

Sentence: Merry Spinder loves to buy everything on credit and has developed an elaborate system of rationalization for this habit. She is such a creditz that she reasons that she is actually making money doing this, because while the credit card company charges 8% interest on what she owes, the money that's sitting in her mutual fund earning interest is supposedly making more than that. Except she forgot that the stock market hasn't been doing too well lately, and, oh yeah, paying $39 late fees isn't helping her "make money" either. This is the same woman who in college thought that if she still had checks in her checkbook, that meant there was still money in the account!

Etymology: credit + ditz


Sadly, she ain't the only creditz around... - Nosila, 2010-09-24: 23:55:00

Pronunciation: deb it tu tant

Sentence: Deb was about to launch herself into high society in the hope of meeting an eligible young man, from an equal or better income bracket. Her mother, Mrs. Harry Bottoms Pincher III, of Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach and the Cayman Islands (or Penny, as her society chums and former chorus line peers knew her), had spared no expense in decking out the lovely Deb in a Dior gown and Tiffany jewels for the glittering soiree. Being refined as she was, Penny, had taught young Deb that La Creme de la Societe, to which they belonged, never touched vulgar cash themselves. Why, that was why one employed servants and lawyers. No, Penny had taught young Deb that it was classier to become a Debitutante and carry her boundless debit card with her at all times. It was safer than carrying cash and afterall,it was better to Heir on the side of caution...

Etymology: Debutante (a young woman making her debut into society) & Debit (a card which allows you to pay for goods directly from your own bank account; an accounting entry acknowledging sums that are owing)
