I'm on this site so much that the first word that my son read was "FICO".  No, I am not joking about this.  It really was the first word that he reliably identified.

...your FICO jumps up 20 points and instead of being all excited, you get obsessed with figuring out why, what changed, is it permanent, are you rebucketed.  (Heck, I should be celebrating a 20 point victory.)
