Finally declined for a credit card at age 36, first time ever.

First time I've ever been turned down for a credit card: what an alternate universe -- paying off your bill in full and in a timely fashion qualifies you as a deadbeat in their universe!

(In truth, I just wanted the $100 reward and then I'd planned to cancel the card anyway after 6 months, so they were right to decline it.)
