    I recently paid off all my debt and am about to switch over to a credit union. Last night a telemarketer called me to conduct a survey about banks.  It started off with a question like, "What is the first name that comes to mind when you think of Banking?" When I said Goldman-Sachs, then USAA she didn't have them in her computer.  After that I said Suntrust, which was there.  THen there were a ton of advertising questions and whose name comes to mind when slogan A is read, or who I see most of in various medium.   Then I got to rank them 0-10 and then 1-5 in various areas including customer service(0) and ability to be profitable or something like that.  She seemed shocked by some answers.  I think it would be great if more people who were pissed took these surveys and bashed the banks.  If people remember to give them good marks for THEIR profitability, and poor marks for OUR welfare, maybe they will at least have DATA that tells them to be scared.

      USAA is a very good bank, IMO.

      ...but the first name that comes to mind when I think of banking is Beelzebub.

      I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!
