One slurpee and a few hours of walking later…

Step one: don’t think about Temagami when you’ve got a smaller scale to deal with.
Step two: wander aimlessly through Bloor West Village in the heat and sunlight with resumes for the purpose of finding a second job
Step three: spend remaining small change (nickels, dimes and pennies) on two apples and a slurpee to share with significant other.

Still no short term solution. Delaying tactics to kick in shortly, methinks.

And in the mail when I got home…

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Visa cardholder.

Unfortunately, based on the information you have provided on the application we have not been able to approve you for a Visa Card for the following reason.

  1. We feel you have sufficient available credit at this time.

If anyone knows what the hell that means, please share. They make it sound like I’m too worthy to have a credit card or something. Yeah. Whatever.

      Insufficient makes sense to me. I’m wondering if it’s a typo.

    You’re asking them for credit, they say, for the value of income and non-liquid assets you have, you have enough credit.

    That’s how I read it anyways

      So they can’t give me a card because I have enough credit… which means enough credit=no credit.
