Left the Garden... for inebriated reasons....

I applied and was approved for a Barlays Ring card with a $20,000 CL.  I have know idea why I applied for this card other than it seemed like a good idea at the time (after a few Vodka Tonics).  It adds nothing much to my current portfolio other than a low APR and the yet to be read benefits of "profit sharing" this card seems to offer. Sigh.  I have to stay away from these forums after having a few cocktails....:smileysad:

Thanks, LS.  I really do need to practice what I preach, and i do feel guilty for my indiscretion.  BUT I'll take another 20K any day! :smileyvery-happy:  My scores are high enough and history old enough that it won't make much difference score wise, but I still feel a certian amount of shame....:smileysad:
