I'm mad... well at myself; sometimes I am a total blonde. Without getting too personal lets just say I used to bank with a bank that went under and was gobbled up by a bigger bank using TARP money (don't get me started on that).
Today is payday *happy day* so I go to my account to yanno pay bills and transfer money and I can't do it until Monday. Because my accounts are being moved from the old website to the new one.
Ya, I've gotten emails saying all my banking needed to be done by the 22nd. After the 22nd NO one can help me. Ya, I just went back and reread every word. Funny it still says the same thing yet my comprehension of it has like quadrupled.
It's really not that big of deal, and my money is still safe somewhere in California which also cracks me up. With online banking the fact ANY bank considers states to be like foreign countries is just ridiculous. Seriously if you do business with one of those HUGE banks and you go into a branch say any other state than you happen to live to take money out, shouldn't it just be in the system? It would if I used an ATM machine. Yet, it's not. I get blank looks of people telling me, "I can't find your account." Those are scary words to tell someone, especially when you're talking about their money. They look at me and ask did you open your accounts in this state? No, I did not. I opened them in California. *Insert more blank looks*
"You know, you should really close those accounts and open new ones here, we have someone to help you do that."
"What the fuck? But it's the same bank."
"Well, yes...technically, but then you would be in our system."
"But I am in your system, I'm in your system for online banking, I'm in your system for ATMs, I'm in your system, believe me I'm in your fucking system."
So much for their system and so much for my money. Well, at least for a few days.
Maybe I'll just take myself back to California then none of this will be a problem.
