Meh. Not my wife!
On the plus side thank Gd my wife isn't a DDFer...we'd never see each other in real life.

How much does your wife know about CC's and airlines and all that?  Do you talk to her about "work" ?

... you have 20 twitter accounts but don't check them at all, besides for your twenty-first account which is used exclusively to keep track of glitches.

Ö you have lost track of all the dots and pluses in your Gmail address.

Ö Thanksgiving is celebrated as a day to give thanks to American Express for their abundant goodness.

Ö your vision of a robust business plan is IB>VR>BB>ATM>IB, and the national rate of inflation is controlled by SPG and HH.

DDF Economics...explained with 2 cows.
You have no cows and no milk.
You acquire the rights to four cows, although your CR states that you only got one.
You generously share your rights to the four cows with five AUís.
You open up shop, quickly specializing in the skim variety.
In the first month, the cows easily produces a lot of milk.
As the supply quickly dwindles, you squeeze out every drop you can with SMís, HUCAís, and RBís.
If you are feeling particularly generous, you feed the cows a bit of VR, GC and FAR.
You eventually get hit with an AF, at which point you give up the cows.
Youíre left with no cows and lots of milk.
You start churning butter.

You don't flip out when you are told your luggage was delayed.
