Why I HATE Blogging

unnamed (11)

I hate Blogging. I really really do. What else can I say ?

Taken aback with this cold response,
Debit went to his second home, the balance sheet,
Opening his door he spoke aloud, “I hold assets, you are a liability. How can you be so rude !”.

This infuriated Credit many folds,
“I am the giver, you are the receiver, never do forget !”,
He angrily replied.
