Thoughts about banking

Today’s Quote: “An American has no sense of privacy. He does not know what it means. There is no such thing in the country.” — George Bernard Shaw

Why do banks deduct fees from your bank account for not having enough money in your bank account? Isn’t that counter-productive? The more they deduct, the less you’ll have in your account so they’ll deduct more so you have less. It seems like a downward spiral to me. Eventually, the account will be depleted and the bank will cancel the account. It seems like a dumb way to run a business. It reminds me of the Shoe comic strip where the bank calls Loon and says they want to talk to him about his outstanding balance.


Is it just me or does it bother anyone else that banks have Braille and voice assistance for the visually impaired on drive-up ATMs? I understand the logistical and cost reasons for it but the idea of it still bothers me. I guess as long as the BMV continues to give them licenses, they will need to be able to use drive-up ATMs.
