sitting on the edge of the sandbox, biting my tongue

Via Instapundit, #Occupy Oakland will be depositing 20 grand into a Wells Fargo account.

A great occasion to re-post this picture:

occupy oakland

Occupy Oakland Commie occupies Wells Fargo during the last week's "general strike" riots.

The picture was controversial as an individual named Sadie showed up on my blog to point out that when she occupied a brunch of Wells Fargo, she merely violated a bunch of people’s rights; she didn’t break anything.

In a related news, we will be closing our Wells Fargo checking account as they are now charging us $15 a month.  That’s after giving them our business for nearly 20 years and paying our bills on time.  I suppose if the banks are not allowed to charge their risky customers higher rates, they will have to pass the fees to us, the good clients.

UPDATE: We are cool with Wells after all.  Following a brief conversation with Customer Service, they gave us back free checking, only now they call it something like “extreme checking”.

  1. I, too, bank at Wells Fargo. I’m going to check to make sure that we can still have free checking. Thanks for the heads up.
