I went to clean out my deposit box today at Bank of America. As I said before the rates on the little metal container had gone up 300% in three years. I had the box there since the 80's. When I asked the young bank manager why this was done he said, "All the banks are doing it. That is how the economy works."
I might ask have asked him what other things had gone up 300% in price, but it would have been seemed as condescending as his remark to me was. Bobbi and I need to decide if we will leave any accounts open with these guys at all.
