Irrational AmEx Anger

I’m not an American Express card holder, and I never wanted to be.  Apparently, AmEx wants to keep it that way.


See that on the envelope?  “You’ve been selected to apply” – what?  Not “You’ve been approved?”  Not “Be our customer because you’re awesome!”  Not “Holy shit, it’s hell here without you!”  No, being an AmEx card holder is such an exclusive club that they just want me to know that they’ll consider letting me use their fucking credit card.  What a bunch of obnoxious a-holes.  (Yeah, a-holes – they’re not worthy of an entire ass.)

Well funk dat.  I don’t want your skanky ass card.  I gave this letter honorable shredding and directed the reminder to the recycling bin.


“You visit because the outside world rejects you. This is your family. I am your father. I want you all to all follow
There is a new enemy: freaks of nature who interfere with our business. You are my eyes and ears; find them. Together we will punish these merchants. These… creditors.”
