    EVERYONE should stop complaining about Bank fees and move their money to a member benefits Credit Union. Anything else just rewards the bad behavior of the Banks and is just laziness. Even smaller banks are not good because the big Banks will buy them.

    Alison was one of my best friends in high school! I'm so proud...

    I hate that I accidentally twice clicked the supernova ad cleverly hyperlinked everywhere behind all the other content on this page. I like to click on the margins to let me scroll down a page.

    I also hate that I don't get to see you every day like old times, Alison! (sobbing)

    Also Rick Santorum, I hate Rick Santorum! He'd love to impose religious law on the whole country. Scary man...

    Does Netflix still have Candy Stripe Nurses? That's all I need!

    LOL.....great job, ladies! Hope you're back soon. :)

    And yeah, I agree with the first comment >> We've been with our credit union for years and have zero to complain about. I figure the only reasons people complain about the banks (instead of DOING something about it) is:

    a) ignorance of credit unions

    b) laziness. Don't want to make changes

    Time to set up an account with your CU folks and give your lovely bank the boot!

    We have no fees, we get an interest rate rebate every year on our loans, they've extended our mortgage & home equity loans at extremely favorable rates. It's like banking with your family.... but with less hassle and eye-rolling. LOL
