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...

We'll politely avoid discussing misconceptions in politics and economics between our two countries. :smileyhappy: I am obsessed with FICO... because I applied for the Wally World Discover instead of Discover More to get the score.

Or confuse DW/DH's birthday with a CC's report date.

 

Take out a mortage just to get your EX score.

DW and I actually did that. We app'd just to get a feel with a potential lender-to-be and to learn of our EX FICO. However, the lender sold us on proceeding now and scores weren't an issue, so we relented.

do-over.  Take out a mortage, apply for AE and in my case if BofA used EX - apply for one of their CCs just to get my EX score.
