A couple of days ago, as I was shredding the lastest offer for a credit card, I commented aloud that all these credit card companies might give it up. As cool and exciting as they might think it is for me to have a credit card with some logo of some company of it or some celebrity, I just wasn't all that interested in having it. Unless, they sent me the opportunity to sign up for a UT credit card.
Lo and behold, guess what came in the mail today?!? You guessed it--an offer for a UT credit card. A card that would feature God's house on it (for those of you who don't know that is Neyland Stadium). A card that would declare to the world that I loved UT and was priviledged to carry around a credit card that showed my fandom. (As if having enough orange and white apparel that I can wear something with orange in it every day for a week and a half without doing laundry wasn't indication enough). I sat there, looking at this marvelous offer, contemplating it, pondering it, wondering if I should take the plunge.
I felt a moment of weakness...I picked up the phone to call, to activate my card. No delays, send it to me now!
Thankfully the shredder was on the way to the phone. I saw it, looked at the offer and then quickly shredded it--phone number and all. I mean I am only human, after all.
But I did find it amusing that not more than three days after I'd made my bold statement that only credit card I wanted was one proclaiming my love for UT and then the offer shows up. Be careful what you ask for....you just might get it.
