This is a question Banks

Your Ginger Fuhrer froths, "I hate my bank. Not because of debt or anything but because I hate being sold to - possibly pathologically so - and everytime I speak to them they try and sell me services. Gold cards, isas, insurance, you know the crap. It drives me insane. I ALREADY BANK WITH YOU. STOP IT. YOU MAKE ME FRIGHTED TO DO MY NORMAL BANKING. I'm angry even thinking about them."

So, tell us your banking stories of woe.

No doubt at least one of you has shagged in the vault, shat on a counter or thrown up in a cash machine. Or something

I lost my cards on a bus once. Everything apart from my debit card was a dream, quick replacement and no fuss whatsoever.

A month after being told I'd have my card "within a week, love" I started shouting at people. They finally got me a phone number. Bear in mind that this is a month in which I've had to skive off work to withdraw any money.

"Where's my card?"
"We've got it here, sir."
"Where the fuck is 'here'? It's supposed to be in my hand!"
"It got returned by the postman, so it's at your home branch."
"It... but... where is this place?"
"I live in Edinburgh. I changed my fucking address to Edinburgh. You've sent my statements to Edinburgh for the past five years."
"Are you sure you can't just drop in to pick it up?"
"Well that's not really my fault. I suppose I could send it up to a branch up there, but I'm really not meant to..."
"Put the card in the fucking post or I'll burn your house down."

All bankers are useless jobsworth cunts. I know because I used to be one.

if you were going to burn their house down, you'd have to go to Hull anyway. So you wouldn't actually have saved yourself the journ...

Oh. Hang on. I've missed the point, haven't I?

It's a toofer
If the card isn't in the post, I'll go down to Hull and collect it. Then I'll burn his house down, pint or five in the Old White Heart, and back up north of the border.

No such thing as a wasted journey. :)

The exact same thing has been happening to me for the past three weeks!

At least now I have a Visa... well done for catching up with the rest of the world, HSBC.

I used to work for them, so I knew precisely who to mention the whole affair to so that shit fell from on high. None of them work there any more, unfortunately.
