Big city service
My local credit union was bought out by a larger financial institution. I gave them a chance, but within two weeks I've had to deal with a half dozen things that made banking a whole lot less friendly. It varies from my favorite people being laid off to annoying little hidden charges. Even phone calls are now routed through the main office where I used be able to call people directly.
The place has gone from being one of the top five companies to work for to a place where people are going part time because they hate work so much now.
My lovely wife and I were going to make some major financial changes. We've decided to wait until spring. There's no time to go bank shopping before our trip. In the mean time, I'm doing some other changes that will hold us until we get back. None of those changes will be with the “local” credit union. If I've got to deal with a rude faceless corporation, might as well go for the best rates.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
