But other things I hate?
Well, I loathe Wells Fargo with a passion. Is that weird? To hate a bank? I grew up with Bank of America, so I thought it might just be that I hated WF for not being BofA.
But then, I went to BYU which is inconveniently located in Utah, otherwise known as the state with no Banks of America. When you have a job that does not offer direct deposit? It's hard to bank out of state. So I signed up at Wells Fargo because it was conveniently located both on campus and across the street from my apartment.
And I realized? My loathing was well founded. Wells Fargo is the worst bank in the world. (I have now banked with four different banks and the other three have been a hundred gazillion million billion times better).
A few things that I loathe about Wells Fargo?
- They will charge you if your mail is returned to them. And since they send six billion junk mail things, it's hard not to get zinged for this, especially if you are moving often.
- They charge you for a savings account. Ridiculous.
- Online Bill Pay (the technological wonder I cannot live without and the reason that we never pay any late fees) is not free.
- Ugly cards (yes, this is a reason to hate a bank)
Next, Tiffany's. I'm sorry, but I think this is the most overrated product evah! For some reason, we get their catalog periodically and every time I flip through, I think "Tiffany! Your stuff is ugly! And cheap looking!" I am all for buying something that doesn't reflect how much it costs, but only if that means I bought something CHEAP that looks EXPENSIVE. I do not want to buy a $200 pair of earrings that looks like it came from Claire's. This is wrong.
And Louis Vuitton. I personally will probably never own a designer purse because (like Sheyenne) I cannot fathom spending $300 on a purse. I do buy nice purses - ones without little hanging seams or straps that will pull off in a few weeks - but I buy them at discount stores. The most expensive purse I own? Cost $32 (originally a $170 purse. . .I rock. Or Bart does, for buying it for me for my birthday). Anyway, if I was to buy a designer purse, it would never ever be Louis Vuitton. It's just ugly. And looks fake, always.
I apologize for the crazed ranting. Sometimes, bad things need to be addressed.
(Oh and, yes, it is a much better day - thanks for asking. I had hot chocolate (with a wee shot of real cream) for breakfast and got dinner started before I went to work. And on my lunch break? I am going to go home and vacuum).
