05/19/2001 Entry: "For (y)our convenience..."

I only have two credit cards. Both of them sent me new cards today. What, it's new plastic day? So I get to spend a little time on the phone activating them, i.e., listening to their sales pitches for purchase protection and balance transfers. For my protection. Of course, I'm a bad American and have no outstanding credit card debt. So some other American has two more cards and is in $11,600 worth of debt to cover for me. Thank you, whomever you are.

Of course, one of the credit cards (from a bank who shall remain nameless, but whose initials are Capital One) informed me that because I was a "valued" customer, that they'd issued the new card with a new number on it. So I can correct any automatic payment systems I've set up. Convenience? (Sniff.)
