I'm doing bills, which means I check my snail mail (which means, I usually
check my snail mail once a month. Ah the joys of being on the digital edge)
and I get this letter from a credit card agency. I think I actually applied
when they caught me half asleep when they called me one morning.
Anyway, I got the rejection letter today:
Dear Sean P. Conner:
Recently we called you about the XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Platinum Plus
XXXXXXXXXXX. We have given your application individual attention and have
made every attempt to approve it.
After careful review, we are unable to approve your request at this time.
We have determined that you do not have a sufficient amount of credit
references and you do not have sufficient established revolving credit
accounts. This decision was based on information obtained from your
application as well as the credit reporting agency indicated below.
If you have any additional information that would allow us to reconsider our
decision, please write to us at etc., etc.,
I do not have sufficient established revolving credit accounts.
Am I the only one that finds revolving credit accounts horrifying?
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
