Check the Statements

by on Monday, November 21st, 2011

Most of the time I get my bank notice that my statement is ready for review and I just dlete the notice and don’t worry about. I manage my money closely and know what I put in thee ans what I am taking out. Therefore, I should know pretty close to the balance without going througha lot of drama once a month to balance the account.

For some reason I took a longer look at last month’s statement and damn, there is a $6 charge against that account by the bank. I’m thinking, WTF?, and called the bank. They said they are now charging $6 a month for me keeping a checking account at this bank. There’s no way to get rid of that charge except to change banks and find someone who will give me an account for free. So, now I’m on the hunt. I’ll be damned if I’m paying this bank $6 every month just for the privilege of them holding my money for me.
