And this is why Amazon.com exists and credit cards. :xD:

Have you considered getting a PayPal account? No credit card needed, just a bank account.

I just need to get around to applying for a credit card. I'll do it one of these days, weeks, months...

No, I haven't.

It's not lack of credit that's the problem, it's getting myself motivated to do it. ;) I'll get around to it one day.

Trust me you don't want a credit card just for shopping online. It is too damn easy to f#ck up with, you are much better off going with a prepaid cash-card and only using what you have on it. It is also safer because if someone hacks in and steals the card they can only get at what you have on said card and can't slam your credit card for $5000 USD

Well, I agree that credit cards can get you into trouble -- that's why I've never applied for one. However, I've had a credit line for overdraft protection on my checking account for ages, and I've learned to use that responsibly. Also, I've taken a bookkeeping course and for a short while worked as an accounting clerk and had to manage the company's credit cards. I have no trouble managing my money.

Actually, if someone hacks into or otherwise steals your card, by law you're only liable for the first $50 of fradulent charges. Many credit card companies won't even charge you that.

True on the new law, when was that brought in. I forgot, but before that law credit cards could get pretty grizzly.

The $50 thing has been around for some time. This new law that's just passed should make things a lot better, but you still have to watch them like a hawk. I had to protest quite a few bogus fees when I was managing company credit cards.

(Didn't get an email notification for this thread either. I'm going to have to check into things over here.)

I REALLY can't thank you guys enough for being yourselves and sharing on this forum. Feeling like I'm the only one out there has caused me a lot of pain in my life.

As you can see by my name, I do have just a little bit of an... all consuming obsession with one piece clothing. Jumpsuits, overalls, bodysuits, rompers, coveralls, footed pajamas, flightsuits, etc. It's pretty much all I wear, I've gotten rid of most of my "normal" clothing, because I just don't wear it. When I wear pants or shorts, I feel like I want to die. When I'm wearing jumpsuits, I love myself and the world.

It's been this way since I can remember, and has been the single strongest driving force in my life. When I outgrew my footed pajamas as a kid, I was so upset my mom cut the feet off and I'd wear them too small anyway. I had a pair of red corduroy overalls that I wore until the seams split. I got into surfing so I'd have a reason for my parents to buy me a wetsuit. I went to Space Camp mostly for the opportunity to wear a flightsuit (and be strapped into the 5 point harness of the simulators). I joined the wrestling team to get myself a singlet, then quit. I've got a million examples.

I just found out about my Autism and Sensory Processing disorders now, at 32. I've been obsessed all my life, and I've been hiding in shame, ostracized, ridiculed, and generally made to feel like a freak of nature because of it. Come to find out the same items I was making makeshift are the recommended treatment for a disorder that I have. How many doctors did I tell my specific symptoms to again? Whatever, can't live in the past.

I'd love to go into the hows and whys of why I like the jumpsuits, but I've got to go to the hospital. Not doing too well, and I don't want it to become a problem.

Welcome to the forum, jumpsuitboy, and I hope you're feeling better soon.

Society stinks, doesn't it? So what if you want to wear one-piece clothing all the time? What should it matter to anybody?
