Does anyone else miss the old formidable bank manager?

While bank managers are much more friendly and approachable nowadays, the old bank managers, said yes or no to whatever you were requesting and you knew where you were. I went in to my bank yesterday to ask for a raise in my overdraft and the manager tried to sell me a funeral plan, and insurance. I know bank managers have a job to do but it does become rather tiresome when im given the "hard sell" every time I go into my bank. And I dont want to hear "it is to save us money" it is selling!!!!!!!

Now bank managers duties are selling their bank services to customers or doing sales or attending to customers... More
