Debtcardholder: /DEBT card HOL der/ John had gone from debit and credit cardholder to debtcardholder over a few short months. It felt like extra money. He never used cash but he always carried some on him. He ate in restaurants...used his credit card...checked his wallet...still had cash. He bought gifts for his wife...used his credit card...checked his wallet...still had cash. He bought groceries...used his debit card...checked his wallet...still had cash. It was amazing how these magical cards had stretched his paycheck. But soon he was not allowed to use any of the cards anymore because they had all become debtcards. So now he had to get more of them to help him pay his payments on these ones. Etymology: DEBIT CARD HOLDER: DEBT: Created by: kateinkorea.

Plastagogo: /plast-AGOG-oh! (plastagogian or plastagogite)/ Little Billy was alarmed at the currenseepage from his piggybank. His eco-rrect teacher gave him a heads-up about the dangers of our vanishing specie, and when his dad told him his chore monies would be direct-deposited into an inaccesible interest-bearing account, he FREAKED! Billy called his dad a NUMISMACRETIN and ran upstairs. Billy's dad believed all paper money was unsanitary, and would soon become extinct. He was all PLASTAGOGGO about his custom-imprintable debit card, and vainly tried to pass his enthusiasm on to his child. But Little Billy was at that rebellious age, and vowed in his heart of hearts NEVER to become a PLASTICOINITE like his poor, misguided father.
