Most of the times when companies pull this shit I don't do anything about it because I am an important yet jaded outsider, free from all human concerns. But when I moved to Colorado in 1998 I didn't have a local bank when I got my first (paper) paycheck out here. Across the street from where I worked (good ole StorageTek) was a USBank, so I went over there and opened a checking account with my paycheck.A Portland U.S. Bank employee said she was fired after giving $20 of her own money to a customer who was broke and stranded at a gas station on Christmas Eve.
The man she helped called her firing “ridiculous.”
“I was a customer of U.S. Bank, I needed help, and she went above and beyond,” said Marc Eugenio of Clackamas. “I felt so bad. She was the only one helping me.”
They've been .... fine? in the 20 years that followed. I mean, they're a bank.
I guess I should pull all my money out and find some LOCAL CREDIT UNION as that is what people like to do these days. But I have a car loan that is setup to take money out of a checking account each month until it is finished. I guess that's how they get you.
