Default Man, did I mess up...

So, while PayPal'ing a memeber some money, I decided what the heck.. I clicked on the PayPal Visa link. Heck, with my credit history, I'll just get a nice letter that basically says "Yeah, nice try". Right???

WRONG!!!

Some brain surgeon over there actually approved my broke ***.... I just got a letter in the mail telling me I was approved, for a completely unsafe amount in my hands...

Are they stupid? Did they not look at my credit history? I want some of whatever they been smokin' to think I'm a good credit risk....


OK, I'll close the vent now. But if I disappear, I can be reached at the local debtors' prison....

They do that every so often they get a young person like us give them a high credit limit. Then it starts with something small first spark plugs then a car stereo then a set of tires, then you buy a car, then your in debt up to your eyballs that in order to pay it off you have to take a job as a janitor on the night shift order to pay it off. Ok I think I went to far. Anyway just make small purchases that you know that you can pay back and that is how you begin to build your credit. If you don't mind me asking how much is the credit limit.

Thanks for the advice, but.....

That'* why the Welcome letter was such a shock.

That'* er uh.. 63 or so cough cough..choke choke ... gagging here...

That'* roughly 160 under current crappy calculations. Heck..just fill up the mug with beer and once you finish round it up to $200
