Yes I understand both point of views. I always prided myself in having great credit, a high income, and a lot of nice things. I was even a bit of a high rolling snob right up until the economy tanked, my income dropped in half and I could no longer pay all of my bills. Now that I understand what it feels like to be treated like a second class citizen by potential landlords, potential employers, and creditors. I am a much more humble and wiser person.
When I get my credit back and I see those preapproved offers that say "Hurry, apply right now! Accept our card online! High limit! Offer expires soon!" I will think of all the negative experiences I have had recently that they don't tell you about in those offers when you take on more debt than you can manage and I will file those offers in the garbage!
Had to live both sides of it to understand both point of views.
