Apping and Blood Pressure

15 years ago I could get a CC just by asking, and the CL's were easily 3-4X what we see nowdays on new TL's.  Two years ago I app spreed and went 1 for 4 and got a piddly toy CL.  A few weeks ago I app'd and I realized just how much more difficult it is to get credit now days.  I got the card but it wasn't instant approval.  The excitement level is so much higher these days.  I actually noticed before I clicked submit I paused and thought about the app, weighed the HP ding and felt my heart kinda pounding.  **bleep**?  I'm healthy.  


It makes you appreciate and respect credit that much more.

Because the chicks dig it when I throw down the card to the waiter comes in handy if I'm short on cash until payday and need a short spot. AMEX gets the booty, and that's important when you're a Pirate.
