So right, I go into the bank yesterday morning to pay in some cash. As I'm paying it in I get the usual sales spiel about my bank account being really basic and old fashioned (ie. free) and how I should upgrade. First of all that pisses me off, because I'm a captive audience and nowhere else do you go somewhere for a service then get it advertised to you when you're standing there.
Anyway, I'm paying in quite a lot because I pay all the bills and my husband likes to pay his share to me in cash. The cashier asks if I am self employed, to which I reply 'no' and then she says 'Oh, I was just wondering because you often pay quite a lot of money into your account' and then she looks at me. So I just go 'oh right', and then there's an uncomfortable silence while she awaits the answer and I realise I have nothing to hit her with and even if I did they have an anti-enraged customer barrier between us.
I mean, wtf??? These people in banks think they have some sort of inroad into your life because they have your money, but they're just glorified sales people (bad ones at that). Now I'm wondering if banks can report you to the Inland Revenue for things like this? Might I get carried away by the men in badly fitting suits?
