Dear Capital One,
You clearly do not remember when I asked for a raise in my card's limit from $999 because I had a full time job with a real salary. You also clearly do not remember that I canceled you because when my car required $1,400 in repairs I could not use you. Chase was happy to oblige immediately afterward. Please leave me alone. I am still bitter.
I'm not sure how much he spent on his car (since I'm not an expert on cars), but based on the pictures he posted of himself posing with it, I'd estimate it was at least $30,000 (nice looking sports car).

1. He had to obtain a new credit card because his former creditor would't extend his limit above $1,000.
2. He purchased a fancy sports car, despite the fact that...
3. He had no money saved because when he had to spend $1,400 (!!!!) to fix his car, he had to accrue credit card debt to pay for it.
