Man, all the craziness this week on Wall Street is really freaking us out. I mean, we don’t own a home or anything, but, wow, when we heard that our longtime bank of choice, WaMu, imploded last night in what experts are calling the largest bank failure in U.S. History, well, hell…that shit is a little too close to home, yo!
So, though we haven’t transferred all our funds yet, Christine and I are seriously considering switching to the far less complicated Hello Kitty ATM machine pictured below.
Seriously, it’s either Bank of Sanrio or the freaking mattress at this point…and since Hello Kitty has way cuter ATM cards, I think we’ll go pink.
In the meantime, rest in peace, WaMu, we haven’t loved a bank as much as we loved you since, well…ever. Free checking, cool tellers, cheeky wording on your ATM prompts, and yes, we even loved those goofy ‘Whoo Hoo!” commercials.
But today, as we say goodbye for the last time, the only catchphrase that comes to mind is a sad, heavy-hearted: “Boo Hoo!”
Vaya con dios, amigo…
