Scary stuff - new credit card statements

Is any one else freaked out by the new credit card statements?  I mean, did I really need to see in stark black and white that it'll take approximately  twenty two lifetimes to pay off my credit card debt if I only make the minimum payment each month? 

I'm kinda a fan of the ostrich approach myself.

What I don't know can't hurt me.

Thanks for posting this! I never look at my bank statements because they are delivered electronically and just look at my online banking information. By looking at your post and then looking at my actual statement online, I now know what I must do to pay my credit cards off. So if people do not think you can learn something from someone else's blog, then they are wrong. I am truly appreciative for this...

It's a bit Nanny state, but with predatory credit card companies I guess some of us need it. You could just opt for online statements and glance at them.
