How to Say "Thank You"!

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I am vastly entertained to find that now that the banks have their bailout and are going to be getting thousands of my tax dollars they have taken the time out of their busy schedule to send me personalized "thank yous".

So far in the last two weeks I have received notice from three credit card companies informing that they are going to raise my rates by between 2% and 5%, even though I have not missed any payments or in any other way been a problem for them.

Now, of course, I can avoid these increases if I want to. I will have to do this by closing out the accounts, in writing, within about two weeks, which is a hassle in and of itself in - really? I can't call you, or take advantage of the online services that you otherwise love to push me off on to? Also, if I choose to avoid these extra charges by closing the accounts my credit rating actually takes a hit! All while the dick that runs Merrill Lynch insists he deserves a 10 million dollar bonus!

This is just as much fun as being told that after avoiding a crappy American car and spending my money on a well made foreign car I will still end up underwriting years of terrible decisions in Detroit, since they are just going to take the money anyway.

Bailouts are fun!
