On Monday I started calling the banks again, because you are no longer allowed to just step in and ask a question, now you first have to make an appointment. It's easier to get into Alcatraz then in a Bank !
After having been on the phone for 2 hours and listened to the different options, I realized that there was nowhere an option to make an appointment but only via the Internet.
Finally I pressed a number hoping to get an appointment. The lady on the phone asked me what I wanted. I said I would like to open a saving account. There was a pause as if I had asked her to send me some gold bars and then she snapped at me : we don't do that anymore, it's too much work (!!!) Now I really had enough! Too much work ?? I asked her, Then a good night and sleep well ! I'll go to another bank, they certainly will be more polite to deal with customers ! I rather put my money under my mattress!
That was really the last thing, in the past Banks laid out a red carpet, the director came personally, you got a cup of coffee, etc. and now .... it's too much work!
Finally I called the last Bank which was on my list and which was just here at the end of my Boulevard. Fortunately I was sitting, because a human voice answered me !!! No option menu ! I was so surprised that I asked the girl if she was a real person, she laughed and I got a friendly man on the phone who even proposed me to come immediately ! Fortunately I had taken all information about the banks before contacting them and we fixed an appointment. I couldn't believe it.
