    I did that a long time ago. The Huffington Post is too liberal for me but cudos on that front.

    Re: Do You Trust Banks?

    That's kind of an odd question.

    Do you trust restaurants?
    Do you trust stores?
    Do you trust companies?
    etc.

    It should depend on the bank. To say that you trust or distrust all banks as a rule makes no sense.

    Re: Do You Trust Banks?

    Can people who generally hate banks so much please explain to me specifically what it is they do to elicit such hatred?

    However, they will also implement hidden fees, process withdrawals before deposits, try to milk the customer for as much money as they can, and generally provide ****ty service. This is why I prefer credit unions.

I don't particularly trust restaurants either, I'm sure I've eaten things I probably shouldn't have...especially from McDonalds and crap places like that.

    I owned a restaurant once. You don't want to know what goes on back in the kitchen!

    I trust the bank to do what's best for the bank. Though I generally use banks quite frequently. I make far more money off of them than they do off of me though.

    Yeah, I worked at McDonald's, you don't want to know what happened there. It's why I really don't trust restaurants. I mean, super high quality ones maybe since they are very concerned about **** like that. But fast food or places like TGI Fridays....I don't trust them. I imagine that a lot of my food has hit the floor...I just pray that's all it's hit.

    It's a trade-off, IMO...

    Spend your own time making food for yourself...

    Or pay someone else to make it for you and risk things happening to it you might not like.

    I don't use banks. I have used a credit union for about 25yrs, and they treat me just fine.
