So all I need now for perfect credit is a backdated credit card from when I was 3.  No problem.

Yes, the article runs out of gas pretty fast. Nowhere does it even remotely address the often difficult transition from simple theory (never be late, keep debt low) to the emotional obstacles of everyday life.

 

When it comes to wishful thinking vs reality, wishful thinking wins.

Nah.  I think I am an AU on Jesus's RBCU MC, or is it Satan's BofA card.  I hope it's the former.
