Default I hate being reduced to a number

I'm apartment hunting and I just ran across a cheap 2-bed the says in the ad that credit score has to be 650 minimum. I have made some mistakes in the past that I'm still paying for but I got my credit from the 500s to 675 at one point--not the best but not too bad. I recently had my identity stolen so it dropped due to some accounts being opened in my name and suddenly closed. It's now at 637. Here's the thing: the apartment is ridiculously cheap--like 2010 pricing--so I figure they ought not be so picky. On top of it, I've been in my current unit since 2007? and have never missed rent except for one time 7 years ago when the postal service lost my check. In fact, my whole adult life I've never not paid rent. And my gross income is 5.5 times the rent and my net income is 3.5 times the rent. That and my rent history should be good enough. The only reason I want a 2-bed is temporarily for me and Mom until she gets a house. Maybe she will sway the landlord.
My mere existence in your field of vision doesn't entitle you to my attention.

Just sliding down the razor blade of life.
