    The financial part of the credit union is much more inspiring than that of a bank.  

    However, remember that you will still run into the same problems you do with any business.  

    I had a laughable moment at my credit union, where they one day decided to just not deposit a third party check from my in laws.  they had been doing this for 10 years without a peep.  

    I guess one day someone decided that they'd had enough or something.  

    So I had a conversation with them.  They told me that it was their policy to not accept third party checks.  I said, um... you've been doing it for ten years.  

    They were unable to show me anything that actually said that it was their policy, because it was something that was "internal." Um.  No.  

    So I said, "Well, when you guys are talking about this at your next staff meeting...."

    She said, "We won't be."

    I said, "You will be."
    Guess what?  They did!  Problem solved.

    You'll still get bad management, just like anywhere.

    You can be confident, however, that your money is going back into the credit union.

    I am an atheist for moral purposes. Seriously.
