A month back I got a call from a gal who offered me the Manhattan card free for 3 years with no strings attached. It sounded like a good deal so I gave her my particulars, photocopied my pay slip and identity card and gave it to her.
I got a letter from them today. This is what it said.
We have received your recent application for the Manhattan Card. We are sorry that we can't offer you a Manhattan membership this time.
However,we hope that this isn't goodbye and look forward to hearing from you again.
WTF? You call me and offer me the card, and assure me that I am eligible. And now you give me a generic rejection letter offering no explanation whatsoever. Screw you Manhattanites!
You know what I feel like doing? I feel like taking my DBS credit card and shopping like crazy with it. Then I will go to the Standard Chartered office and saying "Remember me? You wouldn't give me your card last month. Well, BIG mistake. HUGE!" and walk out of there with my head held high, just like a Pretty Woman.
Do NOT try the Chinese New Year pizza from Pizza Hut, it's the worst pizza I ever had.
