As a consumer I am getting real sick of paying all these fees with very-very substandard service. I guess other people just don’t feel the same way as I do. Because I just don’t see anyone really putting their foot down. A good example is, just the other day I am on the phone with Sprint almost six hours. Because a customer rep transposed one of my free numbers causing me to have to buy extra minutes for the last three months, that is the truth by the way. Six full hours of my time and they are charging me. I don’t mean to pick on sprint, to be honest their customer service has really improved over the last two years. But something has been lost and we are paying more and getting less for our money and it is called fees.

Fees I plan of pay this month.

Maybe a ATM fee
$3.00 convenience fee for State Farm auto debiting my bank account. Well that seem easy to fix, right? Well, its is a $15.00 dollar fee if I want to send in my check, in my opinion this is a real joke!
US Bank will charge me$2.00 a check, if I write a check to anyone…

So are companies really plotting to get as much money out of you as they can? It certainly seems that way.
