#SixSentenceStories; Visa

The word from Denise at GirlieontheEdge this week is “visa”, a prompt charged with possibility. The stipulation? Your story (or poem, soc, what have you) is to be presented with six and only six sentences.

Go HERE to link up your six sentence story and see what the merry Sixters have written.

Vis-à-vis by D. Avery

“Debit card or credit?”

“Does it really matter, what’s the difference anyway?”

“Doesn’t matter to me, and I suppose the difference is more about you; a debit card means the payment is taken out of your checking account, whereas a credit card gives you money to use that you might not even have.”

“Ah, but they don’t give it, it has to get repaid, with interest; I suppose a credit card just makes it easier to live beyond my means. Yes, let’s go with the credit card, and look it’s a Visa, implying I can go places— perhaps the Leaning Tower of Visa; or the Louvre to see the Mona Visa.”

“Yes, sir, I’m sure it will be worth it to view that famous visage.”

  1. Well played!

    Actually, if your debit card has a credit card logo, and you say, “Credit,” they run it through the credit card system. It still comes out of your checking account, but you have the same protection as if it were a credit card, that is, if the number is hacked from the store’s system and used without your knowledge, you aren’t responsible for any of the charges. If you use debit and put in your pin, and the number and pin are hacked from the store’s system, whether you have to cover it or not is up to your bank’s discretion and policy.
