Carlton Banks: Yes, Eazy-E: No

Today was the second day of software testing at Regis Mortgage for me, Amber and Courtney. Basically we just enter mock mortgage applications into the system all day and document the errors we get. We have specific parameters for the numerical parts of the application, but James told us to just enter jibberish for the freehand info like name and address. But in order to introduce some spark of interest to our day, we put in celebrity names instead. For instance, today Allen Iverson applied for a mortgage for a house at 76 Alley-oop Alley (I know, I'm so clever). Chances of getting approved are improved if you have a co-signer, but inspiration for dynamic duos is a bit hard to come by (suggestions please!).

Following is a partial list of applications I've input over the past two days.

Mortgage Application Approved:
DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince
Marty McFly
Afeni Shakur
Magic & Cookie Johnson
Charles Barkley & Kenny "the Jet" Smith
Mike Jones & Swisha House
Wham. Wham. Wham.
R. Kelly & Chuck/Rufus/Cathy
Russell & Kimora Lee Simmons
Peanut Butter & Jelly
Diet Pepsi & Canada Dry
Raggedy Ann & Andy
Miss Cleo
The Blob

Mortgage Application Denied:
Color Me Badd
Ghostface Killah
Too $hort
Theo Huxtable
Grumpy Bear
Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown

*** UPDATE: Chicken & Waffles were just approved for a refinance on their condo. However, Aunt Jemima's credit score was not high enough to get a loan for that dream house in Pancake City. ***

Ok, The Blob I can sort of understand. But why Ms. Cleo??? What credibility does she have?

Why wouldn't Theo get approved? Couldn't Dr. Huxtable co-sign for him?
