an entire bullshit industry built around processing payment transactions between two parties that exists solely because the financial institutions that already do this work, namely banks and credit unions, continue to use the oldest, least capable systems for handling bank transfers possible while they turn around and underwrite the IPOs of these shit companies. fucking rackets everywhere. and I cannot stand tennis goddammit!
okay, that should be good, I should be adequately de-grumpified for the evening now.
thank for your understanding and support.
@djsundog Well there’s “old banking” and “new banking”. Old banking doesn’t care about your experience on their web site. New banking needs to monetize everything about your experience on their web site because they’re not a real bank, just a middleman.
@freakazoid I used to shrug it off when I thought it was genuinely just incompetence, but once I realized it was both malicious and intentional it has never been less than a major irritant since. can't stand our banking system.
