    Bankers are people too.  Remember that.

      Here's the simplest way to give yourself a chance to get what you want from your banker....BE NICE. I know you hate the bank, but don't take it out on the banker. These people don't get paid nearly enough to take the abuse they are dealt out on a regular basis. Double that for branch employees.

      I spend most of my time these days working on loan deferment requests, and you'd not believe how made rude people I deal with who are looking for the bank to give them a break. The business is failing, they are millions in debt, and I call them to get info I need, and get huge attitudes. Really?

      Does anyone have an example of when you chose to be nice instead of yelling, and the person went out of their way to help you because of it? The way things seems to be going in the world, I think we could all use warm and fuzzy stories.
