FreeCreditReport.Com: Background Check Your Dates

Posted by Rosepixie on April 13, 2010

This is a commercial for freecreditreport.com, a rather sketchy credit report company.

So the lesson here is that you should run a credit report on your dates before it gets too far?  Seriously?

And I have to point out that he doesn’t seem to be much help.  She’s cleaning up their totally messy place while he’s jamming with his friends about how much he wishes he hadn’t married her so he wouldn’t have to live there.  I’m sorry, but that doesn’t make me think that it was him who made the mistake in that marriage, it makes me think that maybe it was her.  I mean, look at her situation.  She’s stuck there with some guy who’s no help and who’s just whining about how she has a bad credit score.  What about his credit score?  She’s not the only one who would be applying, you know.  If his score was good, they could still potentially get a loan.  But she’s stuck with this guy who just writes songs about how much he wishes he hadn’t married her, goofing off with his friends, as she cleans up his stuff.

This does not make me think this is a good service, it makes me think they’re sexist jerks.  Sorry, freecreditreport.com, but this is a total fail.
