They’re out to get you. Anybody here listen to Clark Howard? Does the name “Bank of America” bring any stories to mind?!

I regard banks as if they were caged vipers, just waiting for a chance to destroy me. Well, maybe it’s not quite that bad, but I’m very cautious. They usually stick it to you any way they can. So far I’m real happy with our loan officer though, I have feelings of gentle benevolence towards that bank.

After we got married we closed my wife’s checking account. I was not impressed with that particular bank at all, and breathed a sigh of relief when all ties had been cut. Today we got a piece of mail from them.

Inside was a “certificate” that said, “Present this coupon at any of our locations and receive a free mouse pad with our Thanks.”

I couldn’t believe it! They’re giving away mouse pads! Ha ha ha!! I hope their generosity doesn’t get away from them!

Do people still use mouse pads? I haven’t used one in ages. And if they do, what do they cost? Fifty cents?!

And they capitalized “Thanks.” Weird.

Needless to say, it’s going to take a lot more than a mouse pad for them to sucker me in.икони
