What the fuck, bank? So I’ve had this credit card for a few years and I need to get a temporary credit limit increase for my upcoming vacation. The card was issued in my hometown, I now live 3.5 hours away in the same province.
Today I go to a local branch of the same bank and they tell me I NEED TO GO TO THE ISSUING BRANCH TO GET A CREDIT INCREASE.
WHAT THE FUCK
What the fuck are you supposed to do if, say, you went across the country for university? Or if you’re moving cross-country? Who the fuck would think a Visa card issued by a national bank could only be changed at the issuing branch? Isn’t the point of a national bank to be, well, NATIONAL?
So now I’m flailing around trying to change my credit card information for this trip that is going to be charged to me on Monday and the tour company probably thinks I’m a totally flat-broke flake when really my bank just fucked me over a desk with a red-hot poker.
