A Bank of America branch in Tampa refused to cash a man’s check, even though he provided two forms of ID, because he couldn’t provide a thumbprint. You know, seeing as he was born without arms. Shoving aside the picayunish matter of the Americans With Disabilities act, did it ever occur to these bank employees to get, like, a toe print or something, if they’re so hell-bent on preventing customers from cashing checks made out to their spouses?
I hate it when I’m bitching about something relatively trivial (or not, as the case may be) and some do-gooder chimes in with “You should be grateful to have arms and legs!” So, unfortunately, it’s rare that I’ve considered myself lucky in limbic regard. This is one of those rare times. That, and I don’t have an account at Bank of America.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
