To return to my credit card saga (from the other thread)...
The letter from Barclay's arrived and didn't say anything. It simply said that "we check your credit rating with these companies, go see them". So I went and did the 30 day free trial with Experian in order to see my credit rating, and lo, as expected, it had nothing bad on it. So my conclusion is that the computerised system with Barclaycard is stupid.
So I decided I'd just do the simplest thing possible. Today I went into Kingston's HSBC branch, as they're the bank I have my current account with and have done so for the last seven years. I sat down with a guy and we went through the form (filling in my income details and such), and lo, it was done.
Therefore, the reason that this is in this thread is that sometime next week I should receive my credit card in the post. Huzzah.
aha so you're finally making your way through inubuYAKasha? Technically Yakky's dad isn't Seth Green, he's the character Oz... because IBYKS is set in the fictional universe (like a jasper fforde book)
