Have you noticed?

How it does seem that businesses seem to punish the poorest in the community. I had a direct debit fail, I was 16p out and no overdraft, but thanks to that the bank has very thoughtfully charged me £10 to cover their costs. Ten fucking pounds.

And not only that but if you fall behind in your payments in your gas and electric. Then they come and fit a meter, from all I have read, these meters cost more than a direct debit. How is that helping someone.

I get that companies need to make money but by charging people for things they can’t afford in the first place seems like a bonkers idea.

    IMO, the people who decide to impose the charges and install the meters you mention are people who are incapable of thinking things through…there are many of them out there. Thinking that everyone else has the same common sense as you is a big no-no. I learned that the hard way….which is the way I learn most things….

    The rich stay rich by keeping poor, poor. Any extra that can be added is covering their costs. The greatest thing would be for a service company to actually have to collect on what they provided.

    I’ll never understand bank fees, I get it I was overdrawn and sure I must pay a penalty. However, being overdrawn a few dollars should not equate into 36.00 freaking dollars!
