Moderated Re: bank on line bill pay

Gene Warner

You might call me lucky in that I have my choice of three cable companies to choose from, but it hasn't helped me any. I have only a moderately fast internet, I live alone and don't stream anything so I don't need super speed, and a standard cable TV line up, and my bill is still $140 a month, and the quality of the content is basically crap!

I am very seriously considering cutting the cord on cable TV.

Banks have been probably the very worst business sector where the attitude {cue German speaking English accent}, "You vill do vat ve vant, und you vill enjoy it!," reigns.  When my mother was alive, and I had become her Power of Attorney due to advancing dementia, I will never forget when a local credit union forced me to bring her in to sign when opening an account.  The PoA specifically gave me broad powers with regard to financial management, but because the two words, "open account," were not included in the examples of what I could do, I had to have a woman who had no idea what was going on physically present to sign for consent she was not even capable of giving.  It can be absolutely insane!
The only other thing that comes close is cable TV companies and in that case, since many are effectively monopolies in a given area, you're really stuck!  At least you can change banks.
