Asked why and the lady goes into well you've opened 12 accts in the past year and you look "Desparete" for credit, and im relying on credit to get by. . I have a 0 balance with most of my cards and the one that is maxed out is payed off and closed (i know i should have let it update).
I felt insulted today. desparete for credit to me is having alot of maxed out accounts.

Rude and poor choice of wording, she should've said "you are aggressively seeking new credit" which is a much nicer way to put it.
That's fine, JCP will see how desparete I am for credit when they see their card sitting at a $0 balance for 8-12 months. I need to let ALL of my accts. age, including theirs.
