There’s not such thing as ‘this money’

This post wants to make clear, once and forever, that there’s only debit and credit in your personal balance, and that’s there’s no such thing as ‘this money’.

“I am going to spend the money I got from ABC on XYZ”

“With this money I am going to buy DEF, and that money is to pay back UVW”

You’ve probably all heard these kinds of statements, or maybe you once said them yourself. It’s the situation where people get some money, for some special occasion or because of some kind of refund, and they decide to do something with that money. The thing they are about to spend their money on, is not something they really need, but that’s no problem since it’s ‘this money’, not my regular money.

Well, I don’t hate to be the one to bring it to you folks, but that money you just got, is just a credit for your balance.

Suppose you have : 100 000. The insurance company sends you a refund of 1000 because you have been driving very safely. Now you say to yourself :”I can spend this 1000 on a new tv.” And thus the error has been made. There is no such thing as ‘this 1000’. It’s no different from the 100 x 1000 you already have. You can take one of those 1000’s, and spend that on a new tv, and not spend the 1000 you just got. It’s all the same.

There’s only credit and debit.

I’ll say it again, just because it’s so true :

There’s only credit and debit.

From the moment the insurance company credited you with 1000, you had 101 000. And when you decided to buy a new tv, you debited your account with 1000. It’s as simple as that. If you hadn’t bought the new tv, you would still have the 101 000.

So please, never say ‘this money’ again, since there’s no such thing. Others performe crediting operations on your account, and you make debits. Always. As such. Nothing more, nothing less. In that fashion, as it were. It’s like that, and that’s the way it is. Huh !
