According to the NY Times, there is a list of the “Seven Least Trusted Banks” in our country. Not wanting to get screwed in case their is some kind of financial crisis, I use two banks these days instead of one.
Smart consumer that I am, my banks are numbers 1 and 2 on the list (Bank of America and Chase). However, my primary bank is their number two and their number two is my number one. That’ll teach ’em.
Maybe I should just post my secret pin number on this ning?
In another story, I read that American Airlines is now going to charge $8.00 for airplane blankets. They say it’s due to economic conditions.
Hmm, I wonder how long before their is a memo circulated to all pilots to set the internal cabin thermometer to 47 degrees.
If American Airlines really wants to make money, they will pass out free brownies to every passenger that comes on board, lace them with horse laxative and then charge two bucks for entry into the bathroom, two bucks for toilet paper, two bucks for soap to wash your hands… and then $10 bucks to skip to the front of the line.
They’ll have mid-flight bidding wars for access to the john! Talk about working the bottom line.
And finally, Blue Cross has raised my wife’s health insurance premium a whopping 38%, over one hundred dollars per month.
No joke here. This is real. Congress, however, is investigating this greed. But when we read that bill we saw the real problem with reading: you comprehend when you are being royally screwed.
But no, we don’t need health care reform.
