My bother called and said since we didn't see each other Thanksgiving, we needed to spend the day together. (that turkey only said that because his wife told him she didn't want to be bothered with him today!) Well we watched football then he suddenly remembered he needed to return some pants at Foley's. Off to the mall we went! All the people! We parked miles away from Foley's. While in line two people received instant approval for Foley's card! If I hadn't been so dam nosey I wouldn't known that they received $1000 limits! The saleslady looked at me and saw the saliva coming from my mouth. I began to twitch and nervously move around! Then she went for the kill. She handed me an application and an ink pen. She was worse than a drug dealer! Peddling credit! And I was her victim! She saw that I was reluctant so sweetened the deal! "Please apply...If you already have a Mastercard or Visa then you will get approved...No one gets denied...It only takes a minute or two...I'll give you your account number now and you can immediately use plus a 10%...you get this free bag just for applying" There I was weak and withdrawn! I nearly bent over and yelled for help! I could no longer resist! I snatched the applicationa and pen and signed my name. She ask the questions and punched my answers in the cash register! (ain't that something). I felt certain I would get approved. Afterall I gave her my mastercard, my oldest account, it's in perfect shape! I whispered a prayer! I promised God that I would buy a great Christmas present for someone whom I hate! The saleslady stood silently and then she said hmmm!She picked up the phone and starting talking to someome.. They were talking about me! I could hear them. She said OK. She then looked me straight in the eye and LIED! "You will received you letter and card in about 5 business days! WHAT! What happened to instant approval I asked. Where is my account number! I want to use the card now! She said, "Sir our computers are down therefore you have to wait" A likely story! The people before me got instant approval! I think she didnt have the guts to tell me that I was denied! Afterall she earlier told me no one gets denied! So that's what I get for falling off the wagon! Thanks for letting get that off my chest!
