    Just came back from my mailbox, and Citibank wrote me a little valentine.

    They want $60 per year membership fee.


    There service levels are not worth 60 cents.

    So I am on hold waiting to close the account, which I have not used in a long time anyway.


    There seems to be a long line for service.

    I must not be the only one.

    Dude, fuck the commercial banks.

    Go with a local community bank, you will almost ALWAYS get better service and better fee schedules.

    I bank with one that charges me no fees, requires no minimum balances, and has online banking for free.

    Paulie, I beg to differ with you. I have seen a pimp who was also a prostitute.

    i do everything online, don't even have a checkbook, and capital one is amazing for that between their in depth online banking + bill pay
