Before comedian Dominique was performing on Def Comedy Jam and Chappelle's Show, she was a Washington, D.C., postal worker, though not a very scrupulous one. She admits she took 20 books of stamps as a perk when she quit to pursue comedy full-time, but she notes that Jesus has her back on stuff like that. ''If it don't make you happy, pray over it and let it go,'' she says. ''That's why I don't pay credit card bills anymore. I prayed and Jesus told me, let it go. So I sent the company the letter that Jesus sent me. And I told them if they kept playing with me, they gonna get struck down.'' That attitude might not do much for her credit score, but she notes that bad credit has its perks: ''You don't have to worry about identity theft.''
