Can’t have the banks making any money, can we?

Seen on Facebook:

“Bank charges (a fee) per check to cash a customer’s check. So, if you are a Bank member and you write someone a check then your bank charges that person $1 to cash it!! That’s crazy!!”

Yep, ’cause we can’t have the banks making any money, can we? There’s a really farking easy way to avoid that whole service charge: open an account at The Bank.

Sometimes I think people post on Facebook just so they’ll have a new status up.

    I really don’t get how folks think they can get by without a checking account, nowadays. It ranks slightly above a cellphone in terms of necessities of modern life; sure you *can* get by without one, but everyone will nag you about it til they give up and accept you as anti-whatever (tech, corporate, Big Brother, etc).

      I am on my mother’s checking account but don’t use it. Erik has a debit card from his work; I have a debit card from the State that my child support goes to. I rarely have need to cash a check, & when I do I simply go to the bank on which the check was drawn. (This is what I did with my last student loan check, in fact.) I’ll get one when I start working outside the house again, but right now it’s not an inconvenience at all. (When I was very young I didn’t have any sort of account anywhere, and just ate the small charge from Ace or MoneyBox when I needed to cash my paychecks.)
