Why I deleted my Afterpay and Zip Pay accounts
I was in the shopping centre the other day (seems like I'm in those quite often) and I noticed a turquoise stand positioned within eye shot of anyone coming to and from the entrance. It was a huge promotional stand for Afterpay ~ the online 'interest-free' platform which started in 2015 but took over Australia during Covid-19. Why? Because, well if you didn't notice, people lost their jobs and needed way to get things and get them FAST.

I woke up Friday morning, two snoozes past my actual alarm, oh how I terribly didn't want to go to work. I just had this feeling that it wasn't going to be a good day. Besides, I hadn't even attempted to look at the briefing that was sent prior. It was a 20-minute video and pages and pages of documents about the new Kia Carnival GUV car that was going to be positioned in the middle of Chermside Shopping Centre, yay.
