More Reasons To Dislike Banks Today

Upset who?  Chase Bank (JP Morgan Chase Bank) ordered a branch to remove Christmas Tree.
I don't understand why anyone would be upset by having a Christmas tree in the lobby of a bank.  All I could surmise is that the bank is afraid of offending some atheist customers -- always trying to please the small sector of the population than the majority.  How about most of us Christians who believe in everything related to Christmas celebration?

Background:
Chase Bank told a businessman to remove the Christmas tree he donated to a local branch because it could offend people. Antonio Morales, owner of Bellagio Day Spa in Southlake, had assembled and decorated a 9-foot-tall tree in the lobby of the Chase Bank branch at 1700 E. Southlake Boulevard as a favor to the branch manager, who is one of his clients. The tree remained in the lobby from the Monday before Thanksgiving until Tuesday. Morales said his friend called him Wednesday to tell him the tree had to go. She later showed him an e-mail from JPMorgan Chase saying that the tree had to be removed because some people were offended by it. The bank referred questions to corporate offices.

A few days ago, I received a letter from Chase Bank informing me of additional or new bank fees for certain accounts.  Then my brother received a notice that he's being charged $30 for opening a certain account that he was initially informed to be fee-free.

I think it's time for me to move my accounts elsewhere.
