An unfriendly bank in the friendly village


Last updated 7/24/2017 at Noon

Sometimes you just have to say something when you see something.

There are several banks in Fallbrook to choose from. Perhaps this will make that choice a little easier.

Recently, I went to Pacific Western Bank near Major Market just to change a $20 bill. Simple, right? Wrong. The teller told me I had to have an account there!

I raised my voice to say, "You can't change a $20 bill without having an account?"

A short manager type brunette jumped up and assured me it was impossible without an account.

I said, "What has our country come to when cold hearted corporate shills can't perform a common courtesy without you giving them money?" and let them know I would tell the friendly village about the unfriendly bank polluting our town.

Of course the friendly Vince's Pizza Parlor did change it with a smile, and couldn't believe the bank's actions.

Please consider this unfriendly bank in future decisions on what banker's attitudes you will tolerate.
