I have a new one...when you log on several times a day to stare at your "record high score" on EQ and then pinch yourself to see if it's really real.

Starting Score: 10/1/2011 EQ 568 TU 593
Current Score: EQ 664 TU 700 EX 701 (FAKO)

Just did this, and you are more right then I expected when I first read this...

 

Instead of "what's your sign?"  you ask perspective dates, "what's your score?"

 


As long as you don't follow it up with...  "Can I buy you a drink?  My FICO is over 700"....    LOL


Dying! I think that is actually a good line hahaha


Goal Score: 640 Good things come to those who wait.

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

I used to be a gas pumps fiddling around to find a card with limit enough left to fill my tank. Today I fiddle around with my cards looking for the one that I want to points or cash rewards allocated to...

 

I've also created "Green Periods" which are days where I know that my FICO will be highest as a result of my balances posting. 31 day months now tick me off because they throw me off oc my cycle?

 

Lastly, I must admit that I wipe off and polish my cards now before I put them back in my wallet... bling bling bling.
