With kids they call it peer pressure, but for adults I think it's called 'culture' or something like that. People do all sorts of crazy **** because that's what the people around them are doing. Raping your sister or fearing an unseen creator or renting furniture seem perfectly normal if that's everyone else is doing.

I had a dumb friend that rented a bunch of furniture from Rent-A-Center. Then her boyfriend pawned all of it for drug money. It's basically a long term high interest drug loan, brilliant!

Honestly, I can't even fault these places for charging ridiculous interest rates. It surprises me that they can have any expectation of making collection beyond 2-3 months.

... Then they'd get the furniture back, and get to keep the drugs.

BRILLIANT!

I thought we'd already established that she had rented a bunch of furniture from Rent-A-Center.
