11:58 am - Credit Union Glee!
I finally am NOT overdrawn enough to kick motherfucking Wells Fargo out of my life FOR FUCKING EVER!  GOODBYE, EVIL, PREDATORY-LENDING, POOR PERSON ROBBING, MOTHERFUCKING ASSHOLE BANK!

Hello lovely SF Fire Credit Union!!!   Unfortunately my fireman grandpa died of emphysema after 40 years of fighting chemical fires for Dow in Niagara Falls, NY, but I'm sure he'd dig that his labor ensured that I was eligible to join.

Good for you! I broke up with Gulf War-financing Bank Of America earlier this year for Wescom, and you know what? EVERY TIME I CHECK MY BALANCE THERE IS MONEY IN MY ACCOUNT. No mystery fees! In fact, their interest rates are so good that not only are there no mystery fees, there are mystery BONUSES. Go, credit unions!

I love them as a credit union, but I wish they hadn't built that jetsons-looking thing and put seizure-inducing screens in the lobby where I used to take children to look at the old horsedrawn fire truck.

You know, I never gave you my reco, but I'm fairly happy with Mechanics Bank.

They have no East Oakland branches though. ):

east oakland branches, HA!

There is NO bank within like 5 miles of my house!!!

The closest bank to me is in the Laurel, which is, let's see, 60 blocks from here.

I may need your coaching to go through this very same process, as I am a hater of the Fargo of Wells also. I have fear! They are intimidating! Switching financial institutions is so complicated! I have so many automatic deductions! So many places my debit card number is saved (maybe that's actually a bad thing...) Anyway, we will talk about it soon again, so I can hear in detail about your switch. You're such a switcher!

ok, so this is like, the weirdest thing to be posting on lj about after a how many month hiatus but... I FUCKING LOVE THE FIRE CREDIT UNION. like, they've saved my ass so many times. i call and say 'i dont understand why i have this fee' and they're like 'oh, lets figure that out' and reverse the fee and GIVE ME FREE MONEY CAUSE THEY DONT GET IT EITHER. its like... amazingness. no, its not like amazingness. it is. i dont understand why everyone isn't a part of it.

i miss you and hope you're well; seeing you for 10 minutes a million years ago just wasn't enough amanda time. x

I'm glad for your endorsement, Pal. I also miss you! I have much more free time now, so let's make a plan. What's your schedule like these days? xoxoxo
