The standard Bank of America ATM card (in California, at least) is a Visa debit card.

I do believe that I would find a raging dose of the clap far more enjoyable than dealing with BOA customer service...

Announcing the new BofA corporate slogan:

"Like the clap - were everywhere"

*clap on - clap off - the clapper*

I have to agree. The other day when I called them I was answered with: 'Hello, this is Bank of America customer service, how may we exceed your expectations today?'

I was tempted to reply with 'Just doing what I ask instead of royally f***ing up as usual would exceed my expectations.' But I knew it was too much to hope for.

scarily enough, it's company policy to have someone say that at the door if the bank isn't full of customers and they get a kicking if that doesn't happen....so you could errr say something
