The Mysterious Disappearing Chase Deposits
Backstory: I'm a server. My income is nearly solely cash-based. In order to keep a steady stream of money flow I deposit my daily earnings immediately upon leaving the Olive Garden building. I bank at Chase.
The Gripe: For the past two Saturday nights in a row (last night included) the cash deposit I've made has not shown up. Not only that, it's taken a call to Chase claims department to get the money to appear.
The Theory: The Chase website has been having "scheduled maintenance" each time I was making a deposit. For some reason the site maintenance is interfering with my deposit's appearing.
The Gripe (2): HOW IN THE FRIGGIN HELL CAN JPMORGAN CHASE BANK RUN A MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY, CREATE ATMS THAT DO EVERYTHING BUT WIPE YOUR ASS FOR YOU, AND ACTUALLY BE AN INTEGRAL PART OF BAILING OUT THE AMERICAN FINANCIAL SYSTEM AND NOT BE ABLE TO UPDATE MY ACCOUNT BALANCE?!?!
Has this ever happened to you? If so, what did you do about it? Did it ever get fixed? I'm really getting pissed. I mean... They're fixing the problem through the claims department, but the point of the bank is that they keep your money for you so that you can use it whenever you're good and ready.
Now I shall digress so that I can wish you...
Love and Lyte,
