Bastard banks

Ouch - ATM charges!!!

It is outrageous over here. When you use an ATM in a store it flashes up on the screen that it will charge you a fee to take out money from that machine – fair enough, you are paying for the convenience. It’s all very clear.

But then – and here comes the kicker – HSBC charge me an additional $1.50 so I am stuck with total charges of $3.25 for withdrawing $100. Three point fucking two five percent. I hate you HSBC. The sooner the Chase cards come through for our joint account the better! You can’t turn a corner in NY without stumbling across a Chase.

(I spent the first 26 years of my life assuming HSBC stood for the High Street Banking Company – idiot)
