It has been interesting to listen to what little feedback there has been from the banks regarding Bank Transfer Day and the estimated 650,000 accounts that switched to credit unions in October alone. I have heard a couple of times that the banker’s response was that they are really not that concerned as, “Those accounts that left were really the less profitable ones, and we didn’t want them anyway.”
PLEASE… Let me translate for the rest of you that have NOT left your bank, yet. YOU are in that underappreciated elite group that pays the most in fees or have a high loan interest rate. I trust they send a birthday card.
For some reason this made me remember the Twilight Zone episode with the aliens that come to Earth and say they’re here to “serve humans”. They have a book they share but unfortunately it’s in Martian or whatever. So as the people are filing onto the spaceship for their trip in space, the door is closing and they hear a panicked scream from outside, “Wait, don’t go, it’s a COOKBOOK…”
