    Pack the bank lines like the good ole days and make them work for our money. This is the biggest joke. I will cut my bank cards. Back to checks I go. Unless they plan on raising them to five dollars a check.

    why would anyone go out of the network and withdraw money? It's easy to just plan ahead and take out cash from an ATM of your own bank. Unless it's some kind of emergency, it is so easy to avoid fees.
