Empty promises


I know banks are fond of empty promises but this one from ANZ really takes the Christmas cake me thinks.

Making Christmas a little more convenient.

How on earth do they do that?

And when did Christmas become inconvenient anyway?

And why oh why are ANZ offering extended branch hours?

Hardly anyone withdraws cash from a bank branch these days. Do they?

Apart from paying in my tax refund cheque I haven't set foot in a bank for over 18 months.

I use an ATM.

They make things much more convenient. Especially at Christmas.
