Fuck ’em, and fuck the time machine they use to go back and change my ending balances in order to deduct money to cover cheques so that now, three days in the future, the money will have somehow been magically removed before I used my ATM card to take out money that… hmm… well I guess it never existed, so they shouldn’t have let me do that, huh? If I don’t have any money available, it’s pretty silly to let me take it out of the bank anyway, isn’t it? Usually doesn’t work, except when they’re mucking about with the space-time-continuum (which seems to be… almost daily or so). So yeah. Since that money wasn’t there when I (shouldn’t have been able to) take it out, they go back to today and charge me eleventy-seven overdraft fees for doing it anyway, against the laws of nature. I guess I’m lucky to get off so easy. I’d expect doing the impossible to incur the wrath of some nameless deity or other… Unless Wells Fargo is god, in which case, we are all already in hell.
How is it possible for my previous day’s “ending balance” to change during the day if they haven’t got that time machine, huh?
Seems to me they would save a lot of trouble by say… posting money as being removed from my account oh… I dunno… how about when it’s removed from my account and as added to my account oh… just about the time it’s added to my account. But no. They even make trips three days in the other direction to ensure that all of my deposits hang out earning them interest in a black hole somewhere for a little bit before they’ll give them to me, even though their policy says they should post by the same or next day. Which they do, but not until three days later when they make a backwards trip and miraculously post them in the past, reshuffling everything in order to make sure any payments come out of the account first, because those had already posted several days before they actually occurred…
Um. I am confusing myself. I saw something like this in Back to the Future… one of these days they’re going to create a time paradox and *poof*, Wells Fargo’s mother will have never met its father, and Wells Fargo will have never existed. Back in the future… Candice is living a remarkably peaceful and serene life, with no satisfactory explanation.
