32. Huh... My credit score must have rebounded after taking a hit
Working crap jobs for a year after my last layoff. I've been getting a lot too.

My routine when I come home from work is park the car in the garage, get the mail, walk back to the garage, stand in front of the trash can and throw most of my mail away then walk inside to play with my ferrets. It doesn't even get a chance to come in my house.
