I’ve been helping people with money troubles since 1994. I’m embarrassed to admit this but over all that time I’ve developed a real pet peeve about the two phrases, “Get Out of Dept” or “Get Out of Debit.” They are both common misspellings of what people should be typing, Get Out of Debt.
Get Out of Dept
Maybe what people are really looking for when they type Get Out of Dept is a job transfer. I guess it is plausible they are looking to get out of the department they are working in.
Get Out of Debit
Maybe the people that enter this search phrase are really trying to get out of using their debit card. Na, it’s just a common typo. At the end of the day it’s just people looking for information to eliminate their debt.
I’ve Really Got to Let This Go
One of these days I’ll put this pet peeve aside and not let it bother me, but until then we’ve got to arrange an intervention for all the people who keep typing get out of debt wrong.Get Out of Dept or Get Out of Debit. Which is It? by Steve Rhode
