    90 days?
    Why, everything should be like that, huh?
    “Hey, give me a sandwhich now, and I’ll pay you later! Oh, and 300 gallons of fuel too, and put that on my tab! Plus, all sorts of new things, all on my account. I’ll be back to pay sometime later, when it’s more convenient for me, OK?”
    See, life doesn’t work like that! You either pay NOW, or you get your loan from a BANK or finance company, like the rest of us!
