55 mile commute on I-94 this AM, was good as long as you stay in the two-tracks. Cruised the left lane 54 mph all the way; only heart stops are the slush chunks thrown up by the opposing traffic, SLAM!

Slush from oncoming traffic is the worst

I hit what I thought was a puddle on my road going about 45 mph last week. The water was way deeper than I thought and splashed up onto my entire windshield and immediately froze. Couldn't see a thing.

My bank is starting to **** me off.

Deposited a cashier's check from BofA, amount posts. I transfer this amount to a money market.

All of a sudden my account goes negative. Contacted them and they were like "yeah the check was flagged as a doubtful payer."

I go, so let me get this straight, you don't think Bank of America, with over 700 million in cash on their balance sheet, has the funds to cover this check, so you revoked the deposit?

Rep hangs up.

Any excuse for them to collect a fee.

Id be up there raising hell till I got my money back and the fee dropped asap. No excuse for a cashiers check to get rejected.

I sent myself a copy of the chat transcript. Gonna cost me like 2 dollars a day in interest. I'm gonna contact them again but will prob just say **** it and pay it since it's not worth my time to argue with them lol. Scumbag move on their part though for sure.

They dicked me over before, I signed up for their CC and transferred a balance from my other one. Paid all statements by the due date, statement balance paid in full, STILL charged interest. "Oh yeah interest accrues on day 1 of the balance transfer even if u pay in full."

Walk in, tell them they are gonna either cover the charges or cancel your account. I would get out of there, one thing you should be able to trust is your bank. Mine has taken care of me on many occasions and cut me loan deals no one else could beat. That's how a bank should treat you.

Only time im ever worried is you get those people that plow out their drive way and push it across the street and it leaves two marks where the snow fell off either side of their plow, and then the dreded end of the driveway where the plow trucks make a mountain of hard compacted snow. i always worry about my radiator hitting those
