Five Bucks to Withdraw 20? Let the Robber Barons’ Rob!

How do you suffer the stupid?

I was in a hurry to get to a client meeting. My client was in downtown St. Paul and the ramp only took cash and checks (imagine!). I had neither. How convenient: a cash machine across from the booth. Fees levied? Ok. But the next day when I checked on my account I saw TCF also had their hands out when I stood by the machine.

[hand slap to forehead]

Of course—some portion of a banker’s income must come from stupid. We all know this. I’ve always thought of credit as stupid money (yes, I use credit) because my delay in paying for something I wanted right away is my banker’s opportunity to rifle through my pocket. I sign up for this kind of thing all the time. I can understand why William Cooper and TCF have a lawsuit against the feds for limiting fees—otherwise how would they take advantage of my stupid ways?

Resolved: be less stupid for the rest of the year. We’ll see how many minutes that lasts.
