Damn DC area people!

I dropped my mom off at the credit union today so she could get some money to pay for alignment and new tires on her buick. About 10 mins later I went in out of boredum and stood in line till we got to the teller window. Then this stupid ***** starts saying "I cant help you" "You came in after bank closed" (got there at 2:00, they close at 2:00) Some other lady next to us is *****ing at the stupid manager cause they are giving her the same BS. Could'nt get anything out of the stupid *****, could'nt even get the money to get my mothers car back, ended up me getting pissed off and I started shouting at the teller and calling her a ***** in front of everyone.

Needles to say we got kicked out. Can't believe that BS, damn selfish *** people, dont want to lift a finger to help you unless they get something out of it. Then that stupid cop was hanging around that gave me the warning about my license plate, got lucky though, he got stuck in traffic and I reached the FC city limits way before him, and yes he followed me right out into traffic.

I HATE THIS PLACE!!!!! Need to nuke DC off the face of the map! And just saw DC's license plate says "Taxation without representation" Isnt it suppoed to be "NO" taxation without representation? If there is a god, then please DESTROY DC!!!!!

sigh..... bad day.....

Hmmm...bank closes at 2:00 and you roll in at 2:00. And you hate the people. Maybe if you had gotten there at 1:55 instead of waiting until the last minute you could have gotten things taken care of. OR maybe went to the ATM machine, used a bank card and pulled the cash out. Damn, you hate everyone because things don't go your way. I imagine that if I was on the other side of the counter and you started getting short with me....there would be no way I would even attempt to lift a finger to help you out. Rules are rules. If they close at 2:00 then they close at 2:00. About the time they lifted the finger to help you out then someone else would have come in and started complaining because it was 2:05 and since they were helping you out after closing why couldn't they be helped also. But then again maybe you could have turned around and hated them because the bank is closed and you don't want to hear their persistent whining. Sounds to me like it's one of those damned if you do, damned if you don't situations. You'd have found a reason to be pissed at then no matter what time it was.

Where I come from if you make it in the doors they have to serve you, they have the guard stop people from entering when the time is right...but those that are inside are taken care of.

Sorry to hear that your credit union doesn't give a crap about its members. Imagine if thats the way you got treated in a grocery store; start shopping, fill up your cart and then get to the till only to have them say "sorry the doors closed 5 miutes ago and we can't ring your items through". There would be lots of canned items flying out of my cart I'll tell ya.

Its a shame but the truth is "customer service" is a thing long gone. Businesses ( the people that run them and work for them) generally have no desire to take care of the people that in all honesty keep their doors open. Sad indeed......sad indeed.

Does that camel come standard with A/C? And is it a single hump, or 2 hump?

Same here Huckster, if the doors are open it's open. The bank teller should have been courteous enough to take care of you for no other reason then to be polite to the banks customer.

Well I agree with 87442 and the teller. Lemme explain, I have to provide customer service, it's what I'm paid to do. I agree that if you walk in the door before closing you should get service. That doesn't mean I have to be happy about it.

I agree with Kevin, get your butt in the door with enough time to spare for proper customer service and you'll likely get it. If not then don't expect me to be happy about having to be there any longer than necessary.

The problem I have is when the retards walk in 2 minutes before 10pm on a saturday night and expect me to locate a valve cover gasket for an Acura Vigor before I leave. That's when I tell people to f-off.

Exactly, I can never put it into words too well, but yeah if you walk in there at closing time and your int he bank, they should help you! If they really did'nt want people coming in then why did'nt they have a door man? When I worked up here, right beside the place (yes FC is that small) we had at lease 1 person at the door before close and if it wasnt anything serious, or the customer could get their butt in and out quickly, then we use to let them in. Just pisses me off!

a word of caution about yelling at the bank employees

I know a woman, with anger control problems, that caused a scene at her bank and they closed her account for "just cause". the bank then put her on the ChexSystems network list and she cannot get a bank to give her an account for at least 5 years unless she can convence the bank that put her on the list to take her off early and that did not work.

Now she cannot even get her paycheck cashed. She has to sign it over to her elderly mother - how embarassing.
