It asked if anyone had done anything special for me during my visit. I replied "Yes. They let me in."

Today, my Bank sent me an online survey to complete. Asked me to rate on a 1 to 10 scale how happy I was with my service yesterday. I scored them at a 10.

Then they asked me to give areason for that response.

I told them this.
I'm happy that TD is once again permitting working class people inside the branch. For the past several months we've been shut out as preferential treatment was given to your middle class clientele.
“Hey, did you see what this clown wrote? What the hell are some people smoking these days?”..
Pretty much. LOL.


My mom taught me an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's too bad Repubes don't believe in prevention for COVID, but they can deny someone water waiting in a line to vote.

Was in the bank today. They've reversed their policy and are now allowing working class customers inside, but under intense scrutiny.

I wasn't looking to withdraw funds. I just wanted to make a deposit. The woman demanded to see photo ID, Then, when I presented it, she challenged its veracity. I offered to remove my mask so she could take a better look at me, Instead, she asked me for any additional piece of ID. It didn't need to display a photo. I showed her my credit card from her bank. She took the two pieces of ID to another woman, who must have been her boss. After a period of whispering and nodding between them, she came back and accepted my deposit..

Probably sprayed air freshener around after I left.

Over here on this side of the pond, showing ID to deposit depends on the bank. Chase makes me show it. TCF does not. My credit union does not.


I got thrown out of sexual awareness training.
I raised my hand and asked "Harass. One word or two?"

I've been banking with this bank for over twenty years. They never made me show photo ID until they found out I'm working class.

I noticed they didn't demand ID from the guy wearing the correct brand of sandals with no socks. They didn't demand ID from the woman who talked continuously on her phone while she was being served.

Clearly, you've never seen me. 5' 6", 146 lb. One lame foot.

Not the stuff that thugs are made of.

It was short lived. As of today, Ontario is back under strict lockdown.

The banks have reintroduced the class restrictions.

How are you allowed in the working class if you don't work?

Cut TY some slack. If you can be on a female sports team without being a female, he can certainly be in the working class without working
You sure aren't very woke Matt! :rollin

More liberal elitism. Working class shouldn't be allowed to retire in modest comfort.

A truer statement has never been made on here, or perhaps anywhere.

You have a second home. I think you "made it."
