I have banked with the same bank and credit union for the last couple of decades. They have at times annoyed me, but it never reached the level of offense. Credit cards companies on the other hand have reached the level of offense with mistakes and fees. 3 accounts had mistakes in the same month. I attempted to close every store account, but there were zombie accounts that survived for a number of years.
