Entitlement Mentality, Part II: Biting the ATM That Feeds You

New applications for unemployment insurance payments are down, but the number of continuing claims is at an all-time high.

There are now news stories going around about complaints of payments made through ATM card issued by a bank contractor. There are the usual screams about banks overcharging for fees; specifically the punative fee if one were to make more than 3 "out-of-network" withdrawls.

Banks participating in the program are providing a service. Rightly, thy expect to get paid for the service. At least the unemployed do not wave to wait in line to recieve, and then wait in another line to cash, their checks.

Oh, the humanity!!! What a fake story.
