Financial Fill in the Blanks

When I was growing up in Quebec most final exams (other than in English) were multiple choice (or multiple guess, as we knew them) when you wrote a high school-leaving exam. I never liked multiple choice, but I was always fond of fill in the blank tests because it gave you much more leeway to be more creative in your responses.

With this in mind, I give you a simple list of a few fill in the blank questions that effectively can for a Financial Aptitude Test.

If you wish to be part of this test, put your answers in the Comments section below:

  1. Don’t do stupid things with your money and ____________________.
  2. The stupidest thing Canadians do with their money is _________________.
  3. I am going to miss the penny because ______________________.
  4. Stupid people and their money are __________________.
  5. If you have $30 cash and you owe $20 to your friend you really have _____________.

I may give out prizes from my backlog of books, but no promises (yes I am being very lazy today, what do you want for a Wednesday!).

    1.) Don’t do stupid things with your money and your time (both are valuable).
    2.) The stupidest thing Canadians do with their money is throw it away on bank fees.
    3.) I am going to miss the penny because kids will grow up not understanding the Office Space ‘fractions-of-a-cent rounding down’ scheme.
    4.) Stupid people and their money are worth hanging out with.
    5.) If you have $30 cash and you owe $20 to your friend you really have $30 (they’ll forget).

    1. Don’t do stupid things with your money – the government will do it for you.
    2. The stupidest thing Canadians do with their money is trust the government with it (see # 1).
    3. I am going to miss the penny because “a loonie saved is a loonie earned” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
    4. Stupid people and their money are voting NDP in the next election (see #1).
    5. If you have $30 cash and you owe $20 to your friend you really have to give him $20 tomorrow for a hamburger today.
