The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


A Leopard Can’t Change It’s Spots …

Remember how a couple of days ago I wrote about my Singaporean bank putting a ‘Welcome Santa‘ mat outside their branch door and that I was wondering whether it was a nice or ultimately evil gesture on their behalf?

Well, unsurprisingly, they have revealed it was all part of the normal ‘evil bank service’ we’ve come to expect from 99.27% of financial organisations.

Why?

Because yesterday, when I popped in to get some cash, there was a sticker on the door [above the ‘Santa’ mat], saying that ‘DBS Credit Cards Are All You Need To Be ‘Santa’.

So apart from the fact DBS are encouraging consumers to increase their spending … latching onto a festive season to maximise their potential to earn even greater high-interest payments annnnnnnd making kids pester their parents for bigger, better pressies because they know their Mum and Dad’s can simply put it on ‘credit’ – the fucking banking shits have also ruined the myth of Santa for all the little tykes who still believe in the Coca-Cola sponsored St Nick … and that is about as low as any bank can go!

Hey DBS … why not go the whole hog and steal the pressies on Christmas Eve and then demand a ‘ransom’?

For just one moment, I thought I was seeing a bank trying to truly improve its image and morals – I should have known better!

Did you honestly think that wouldn’t be the case? And they say planners are smart.
