One day, I inserted a card into an ATM slot.  A protective steel shield lifted and sliced off a third of the card.  I did not proceed and pressed the "Cancel" button. As the card popped out, the steel shield sliced off another third.  I explained the incident at my branch and asked for a replacement card.  The clerk said I needed to pay a small fee.  I sent her to double-check with the manager who concurred.  I was pissed-off and closed my account.  I wrote to the regional head office and included a spicy cock and bull story about advising my dad to cancel a major investment.  The regional head office rang apologizing and saying I can reopen the account etc.  I did not.

I just had to teach them a lesson on principles.

Has anyone had similar experiences ?

I remember when my mother was buying a new car.

I had enough to pay for it, so she did not have to touch her superannuation.

I can't remember the exact price of the car - about $25,000 - whatever.

I walked into the bank and said I needed to withdraw $25k.

They said fine, but the cost of the bank cheque was $12.50.

I said "I'll take the cash, then."

They said "No, we don't have that much cash on hand."

I said, "I'll have a free bank cheque, then."

They said. "No, the cost of the bank cheque was $12.50"

I said "I'll take the cash, then."

They said "No, we don't have that much cash on hand."

I said, "I'll have a free bank cheque, then."

They said. "No, the cost of the bank cheque was $12.50"

I said "I'll take the cash, then."

They said "No, we don't have that much cash on hand."

I said, "I'll have a free bank cheque, then."

They said. "No, the cost of the bank cheque was $12.50"


Finally the girl got the manager and I only had to repeat the circuit of logic once more to get my free bank cheque.

To get maximum home-loan subsidy, I requested a home loan of X and offered to deposit half that amount as security .  The manager offered me 90% of what I wanted meaning I would only score 90% of the maximum subsidy.  I got the full loan elsewhere and paid it off over 3 years.  Meanwhile, the first bank manager was fired for incompetence / bad judgements.

A wealthy client went to see his bank manager and asked for a $ 5.000,— loan. The manager, very surprised, said you have a lot more in your account, I will gladly give it to but I must ask you for a guarantee. It is our policy. So the client said: my brand new Mercedes is just outside the door, that should cover the loan. So they parked the car in the bank’s garage.

2 weeks later the client came back and repaid his loan plus interest. The manager asked what it was really about and the client said: where else can you park your car in a safe place In New York for that price!
