Credit Can't Buy Love

It may seem very late in the game, but I decided I have to get a credit card.
I've always preferred debit, since my inability to do basic math would easily have me overspend. But Ta has been insistent that I should build up good credit history for future use, and I went online to apply for an American Express Blue Everyday Card. 

I merrily clicked and typed, and was then stunned to be shot down. 

You rejected me? ME? The gerudeh mechel? I was overdrawn ONCE by $34 in five years! Ever since then, the good girl! Well, who needs you! There are other cards out there, better cards, cards that know what I'm worth! You didn't reject me, I reject you! 

To add insult to injury, I came home that day to find a credit card application from American Express Blue Everyday waiting for me. Do they know how to rub salt in the wound.

I find it funny how my reaction is pretty much the same when it comes to dating. I go out with a guy, he's pleasant enough but I'm not excited; I decide to be a mature adult and be willing to go out again. But he says no. While it appears as though I am pining after him, I am actually doing a dance on the inside. I get the image of the nebach.

It just goes to show that in those cases, it has nothing to do with the heart, only the ego.

Lol. While the feeling of rejection may be the same, credit cards applications just have to with how much money you're making and your expenses (okay, and your credit). They just want to know that you'll be a good customer and pay your bill on time. A date, well, that's more of a judgement on who you are, but really only in comparison to him.

After one date one doesn't really know the other person well enough to be truly hurt. At least, that is what I tell myself.
