Re: You know you're obsessed with FICO when...

I think that when we are so focused on our scores their isn't much more that can pull our attention.

 

I have a 3 month old and when I am up in the middle of the night rather then falling asleep I pull up myfico so I can see whats new. My partner looks over and goes thats not myfico is it...lol Well yes yes it is. 

 

So I know I am a bit addicted.

You're are late with your mother's day present since you didn't want to charge it so near the statement drop date.

You have a minor panic attack because DH tells you that today you are not allowed to go onto myfico, check reports on any CM website, or check the mail for a green card or response because he really just wants one day with me without the "distraction."  

 

Note:  I'm on my cell phone - he's in the bathroom...shhhhhhh! Smiley LOL

That has a totally different meaning for some of us. I panic if I go into the safe and don't see mine right away. I've been asked for mail with my address on it a few times recently, and you should see the eyes widen when you say, "Why yes, would something from Homeland Security suffice?". Alright, we now return you to your regularly scheduled program...
