    You have a few options. People who don't work cannot get credit cards, my J wife says.

    thanks for the site, HC.

    I am interested in both sites, actually, to pass along to others on the teachers' blog I edit here. I wonder how much this guy actually knows, though. He wrote:...

    pipokun,
    The situation you described does not fit my friend. I already said he contacted the credit card company, and they would not explain why, nor "help". Done deal. Sucks, but done deal.

    Just what the heck is this supposed to mean? What "advice" are you referring to?

    Yup, and my friend was vice-president of his company for almost 20 years.

    Hermit Crab,
    I understood what you wrote (more receptive vs. guaranteed). I responded only to show to support the fact that it is not guarantee.

    pipokun,
    Yes, a lot of what you wrote about qualificatoins for a card are valid. I won't bother to look deeply into my friend/coworker's situation, but I can easily tell you this:

    Get used to it if you intend to live in Japan. It's offensive to many of us, but it's a fact of life.

    Does anyone else but me see the connection between these two lines of thought?
    Yup, in parts of the USA, too. It's called road repair.

    More self-contradictory gibberish.
    5 vs 24? Pick.

    Politeness has nothing to do with it. It's all curiosity based on a (still) insular mentality.

    You don't give us much to go on here, and that doesn't mean you have to spill your guts to a bunch of anonymous forum posters, but we don't know anything about your situation.
