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 have read all your horror stories and sympathise, but I have found banking with natwest fantastic, firstly a few years ago I was in a relationship with a crappy cheating nasty fuckwit of a partner who after begging me to move in with him (so giving up my own lully house and most of my belongings) decided 12 months later that it wasn't working out and I was thusly rendered homeless!!!
I didn't have a bank account at the time as I was on benefits before I moved in with him (long story about depression and agoraphobia)so I had been receiving benefit which was paid via the post office, so now faced with being made homeless (how does an agoraphobic person find a new place to live??? well luckily I have a fab sister who did all the ground work for me and eventually drove me to my new place.... but I digress)... I now am faced with having to contact the benefits agency and explain to them that I needed to make a claim as I was now single, homeless and still very much agoraphobic, I also needed to open a bank account as thats how the benefits agency wanted to pay me - Oh no, fucksticks!!!!!
I called numerous banks but was told by every single one of them I'd have to go in person to open an account, no amount of tearful begging and pleading would sway them, that is until I called natwest and having explained my situation to a lovely lady called Pam, she sent out some paperwork for me to fill in and I scanned a couple of utility bills and my sis posted them off - hey presto basic account all set up and ready to go!!!! Some time later I went over my limit with them due to an asda delivery payment not leaving my account until 6 months after I had received the groceries (and then promptly spent the money believing Asda would never find out ... they did) and when I spoke to another helpful person she waived the £18 charge ... So I really can't complain about the good people at natwest because in my case at least, they have been wonderful!

Sorry for lack of funnies but I just wanted to redress the balance, not all bank employees are the spawn of satan, some of them are just really very nice! x
