It's not like I show up in sweats and flip-flops, but, apparently, at some places, cheap flats and Loft threads are enough to peg you as "not really qualified to eat here."

Or those clubs that don't allow one to go in without dress shoes or basic crappy shoes.. happened to me once while wearing Jordans..
I was able to go into Marquee at Las Vegas with the same shoes and I wasn't allowed inside this crappy club here in Sacramento..

I should have said look I have an amex I`m about to drop thousands just like a stip club!

No way, dude! I'm just a couple miles north on 107th avenue in Doral, Venezuela.

I think they finally pulled the trigger tonight and banned me. I got this weird error message when I tried to log in. They're so childish and naive. It's the only forum I've been on where the mods interact with the trolls and actually take them seriously. That place is run by the love children of Ned Flanders and Jim Jones ("Hidey-ho, drink the strychnine-laced Kool Aid! It's de-didle-ee-licious").

I have this small tingle of satisfaction that I left them before they banned me.

I still find it ironic that they are about credit and advertise and obviously get paid for when people click links there to sign up for cards yet fervently preach how terrible it is to apply for a credit card. Just one of those ironies of life.
