So what if the fico analysis says that we are just below average with our low 700 scores. Don't we know that we can get prime loans with anything above 680 in most cases. Getting a higher fico score, now that most of us know our scores can be equated to not being 'thin' enough. It is an obsession I think. You can never be too thin or too rich or have a fico score high enough. We are behaving for the most part like the fico people said we would. We are picking the score apart by comparing our score to our neighbor's score, girlfriend's or boyfriend's score etc. We knew long before this week that the system was screwed up. I am thankful to get a peak at my score. It lets me know which areas of my credit to work on even further. This reminds me in the Fall when everyone here was complaining about the same ole miserable subprime banks-Capital One, Providian, Cross Country (yuke)..and so on. When Citibank started giving us all cards, suddenly Citibank wasnot a prime bank anymore. Well, I just thought I would get on my soapbox and speak my mind. I hope everyone is enjoying this weather. Later!
