Bank of UnAmerica?
We've probably all read about that door company in Chicago laying off its workers because Bank of America dropped the company's line of credit.
I clipped this from the Huffington Post:
"Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich announced Monday that he is asking all Illinois government agencies to suspend business with Bank of America. Blagojevich contended that Bank Of America received a multi-billion dollar bailout from the government and should accordingly restore credit to the Republic Windows & Doors company in Chicago."
Good for him.
I had my own little B of A fuck-up just last payday.
I deposited my pay check, drawn on a local WaMu account and it cleared within a day of depositing.
However, B of A put a hold on the funds for a week.
Why? The clerk mumbled something about the Patriot Act.
I went quietly berserk and demanded to see the bank manager, He was away at a bank managers' meeting. "He might be back tomorrow," the clerk said.
After I provided her with a copy of the cancelled check WaMu provided me, I told her to have him call me the moment he showed up.
He called the next day, cheerfully telling me "he was able to release the funds."
What the fuck???
Now I'll have to go to WaMu, cash my check, then go to B of A to deposit the fucking cash.
Bank of America, I have a message for you.
My tax dollars, along with millions of others' tax dollars, went toward bailing out your miserable industry.
Now you are obviously hoarding that money and it's UnAmerican.
Keep it up and I'll move my account to another bank, you chiseling sons of bitches.
