My finances are in a bad way. Almost all of my total income goes to pay the interest on my credit card. I would get a second job, but my car is unreliable because it needs new tyres and brake pads and is leaking oil. Because of all the interest payments I can’t afford the repairs.

I was going to write to Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa to ask his advice but I suspect he will only offer bland suggestions like eating less and saving more. I also fear he will ask me to change my wife. I feel like SA Inc.
