W.T.F~~! Bank of Hope is probably the rudest bank I have ever been to in my life. I’m a banker myself, but even I’m not this rude to my customers.
I’m actually kinda nice…most of the time. Anyway…I walk in. It’s not crowded at all.
This place closes at 4pm by the way. What kind of bank does that? Back to my story…I walk in to open an account or maybe even couple of accounts.
The people act so nonchalant to their potential client, ME!! Korean ajummas dude.
Sometimes…they can be so rude. So anyway…the lady finally asks me what I need help with.
I tell her that I need to open an account. I sit with her and ask her about the type of accounts she has and the rates for CDs (just wanted to see what Korean banks offer versus my bank).
She talks with an attitude. I got so pissed off. I wanted to piss her off too so I say, “I just want a CD.”
She says, “Excuse me?” I say, “I just want a CD account.” She says, “Okay, do you have an account with us already? How long were you looking to put your money away for?”
I say, “No, I don’t have an account. What is your shortest term for a CD and what’s the minimum opening deposit?”
She says, “7 days and $1,000.00”
I say, (*thinking, WTF? 7 days? weird.*) “Okay, I want a CD for 7 days and I’ll open it with $1,000.00.”
You should’ve seen the look on her face. She and her colleague next to her kept looking at each other like…”Who is this b*tch?”
She actually straight out says, “You’re gonna make me do all the paperwork for a 7 day CD with a $1,000.00 deposit? Why are you opening it? You’re only gonna make $0.63 with this CD. I don’t understand.”
I say, “That’s great. Fabulous. That’s what I want. Please open it now.”
This was about a week ago. I think I need to go in tomorrow to pick up my $1,000.63.
It might’ve been mean of me to do this, but dude~~she started it~!!
