What companies are you mad at, and why?

Lol please move to OSM

In strange ventures to a website called IAMGOD I ran into a video against a bank.

It inspired me to list publicly all the BS some companies has put me though.

I'll start with Bank One, aka Chases bank now a days. I went in with 20 bucks to cover a bad withdrawal and they said I would be fine that my account would not go to the negative. The next day I check, and I'm negative not only 20 bucks, but a larger number due to fees. So what happens? I dont have 50 60 bucks cash to put in to cover the next few credit card companies, which for some reason all charged me on the same day. This turned into late payment fees, returned payment fees, and over withdrawal fees with the bank for EACH CREDIT CARD!! this happened with AOL, also, and it happened with 2 MMORPGs charging a negative bank account.

So, I got the fee back in the positive with a check I got from school  and I was in the positive like 3 dollars but I'm hit again and they start charging me 5 dollars a day. 5 dollars a day. Becuase I am in the negative. I said + this and now I have horrible credit thanks to bank one telling me the 20 bucks I put in would keep me in the positive. When what happened was they put me down as soon as I turned my back.

I'll think of more companies I'm mad at if anyone actually reads my first rant.

Companies (I guess you can call them that) that are for online games that make you pay money and all it gives you are a few extra options (that are usually completely useless) that aren't available for people who play for free. Runescape is one such game, and all those other games that are usually displayed in the banner here at HC such as Travian, Tribal Wars, Ikariam etc. Why would I want to pay them money and all I get in return are a few features that are useless anyway? It's just stupid and completely not worth it.

5/3rd did the same to me.  Worse, somebody had gotten ahold of my card number and was doing a 1 dollar/random ammount (19.99, 29.99) per day charge.  5/3 charged $26 per item (so basically $52 a day) + 5 a day.  I managed to get all but the charges back..the charges cost me well over 1000..for something I had no control over.

I am mad at the po-lice. They wrongfully arrested me once and I sat in  jail for like 6 or 7 weeks over christmas and new years. I was the victim.

I say again plz move this to tavern or OSM.. This threads about personal stories, or real life chat, either one.

I'm mad at Bank of America.  They signed me up for a credit card that I rejected, repeat did not agree to sign up for.  Then after several calls to cancel it, it still shows up on my statement every month.

Seems to be standard bank fare, I've heard worse stories, like the ones above.

I'm mad at my bank and my mum is kinda mad as well. I tried to get $40 out of my bank account to my paypal account. Now since i have no job, i didn't have the $40 to put into there (which I didn't know at the time when I tried to get it). A few days later (today) I got some mail from the bank saying that since I didn't have the amount of money and I tried to make a transaction between my bank account and my paypal, that I got a dishonour fee of $35 even though the transaction didn't carry out and I didn't buy anything at all.

If I would have bought something then I could understand the dishonour fee, but it's just stupid that I should get a dishonour fee since i didn't have the amount of money and the transaction didn't complete itself anyway. Maybe I'm missing something here, I dunno but it's just stupid. I just hope I can get this job I'm applying for today so i can get rid of that dishonour fee.

Well it's kinda hard to get a really good cooling system due to laptops being rather thin as opposed to desktop computers where you can easily switch the cooling system with relative ease.

Well if you did have a good video card that required a fan then you it might be alright since you would have 2 fans: One for the CPU (I would hope so anyway and one for the video card.

It's true that laptops have much worse cooling systems but they also take up a lot less power than desktop computers so that means less heat

And don't forget the best thing: Laptop + wireless net available in pubs = pure win. When I need to finish an article and I'm either too sober or not in the mood, I take my "Little Lucy" (all 4 computers of mine are named Lucy with slight variations), run down to the pub next door, drink till I am as stoned as an ox, and manage to finish the job.

And, while you're at it, grab a friend who also has a laptop and shares your gaming fanaticism and voila, instant LAN party with hot waitresses running around (sadly, not naked).

I like laptops since they are portable and wireless net can be pretty cool, but I really prefer Desktop computers better. I like how, if I want to, that I can upgrade them whenever I please and I like the idea of building my own computer anyway and that would be a much harder task to do with a laptop.
