Unless it makes a very, very loud sad trombone noise every time someone doesn't make the leaderboard, I'm not interested.

How long until someone gets assaulted and kidnapped until they give over their card and PIN?

Anyone with more than the FDIC limit of $250,000 in their account is dumb.

It's absolutely a ranking system for future kidnapping attempts...

This is like when they put breathalyzers in bars so people could check if they were too drunk to drive. Within hours the patrons were betting on who could blow the highest number.

Yeah, I'm not going to let anyone see my personal finances. Not like I have any to begin with, but it's none of anyone's business.

Saw this story on my local news. Some idiot allowed them to show his $2.1 million dollar account or something like that.

If you have $2 million sitting in a bank account these days, you have very poor wealth management skills.

Perhaps. Maybe he has other accounts we don't know about. That $2.1 million could be his "chump change" account.

I used to work in a bank. One of my clients was a millionaire and he kept a separate account just for "fun" and if he need quick cash to burn. He had many accounts come to think of it, but that was back in 1987.

Yep. Keep enough in it to pay bills and some mad money.  The majority should be invested.  Then again, if you can keep 2 mil in a checking account you may have enough and that is your mad money. Hookers and blow ain't cheap.

How else can you buy something for $2 million? Also if the FDIC is sending payments they have more problems than one bank account.

I thought my comment about keeping $250k in a bank account was going to muster a few "funny" votes.

That wasn't life advice.

I dunno, over the year so far, with the market still down 5% for the year, having money in cash would not have been a bad strategy.

I would love to have $2.1 Million sitting in my bank. I guess I could live off the interest it makes.

I dunno, not good in math.

Probably why I don't have $2.1 million dollars.

Well, yeah, it would not take much effort to do better than just leaving it sit there, it's not hard to find accounts that actually pay interest at 3% now, or do CD ladders or something, as safe as anything, but still having cash would have outperformed the market even with no interest.  Especially since someone just having that much in their account obviously does not care about the FDIC insurance limit anyway so just stick it all in some online bank that lets you do ATM withdrawals.

You know, I do the same thing as was done in this headline. When my phone autocorrects something to where it makes no goddam sense at all, I just f*cking ignore it. That's because it's not up to me to communicate. It's up to you motherf*ckers to figure out why I decided to waste your time with my careless, self-centered actions in the first place. So essentially what I'm saying here is you can all suck balls and go straight to hell, because I don't give two sh*ts about anyone except my own precious self.

I drunkenly added an apostrophe in the wrong spot and now my phone insists every word ending in "S" should have one. I gave up trying to fix it eons ago.

I guess I'm unfamiliar with how ATMs from other banks work.  My bank's ATMs don't show the balance on the screen unless I specifically ask for it to be displayed.  By default they only show the balance on the printed receipt, which comes out printed-side-down and doesn't even eject fully, one has to grab it and pull it out of the machine.

It wouldn't be surprising if this decision was due to assaults/robberies/murders at ATMs, just easier to not show how much money someone has.

They're actually pretty boring, or at least mine was.  Low production values, plot sort of meandered.

Now if you have an invasion of polyps, probably a bit more exciting, at least for the colonoscopee.

It's an old photo. It was taken from one of those "kids go to work with their parent" threads a few years ago.

it looks like she's actually taking a call.

This is just the next logical progression of the douche-bro move of approaching an attractive woman, telling her you were just on the way out the door, "scrambling" for a piece of paper to write your number on, which just happens to be an atm receipt you have in your pocket, that shows your balance.  Then you write your number on the back, hand it over and leave.  I grew up with a friend that had an obscene trust fund and he got a text or phone call within 24 hours almost every time.
