My apartment manager is a total plotz. He seems to have settled with the career of apartment managing by way of being totally unqualified or incapable of anything else, though his capabilities and qualifications for apartment managing are questionable. I ask, how does one fall into the glamorous profession of apartment managing? Has anyone here been one? Do you get free rent?
Do any of you DPers need a washer and dryer? I'm moving on Saturday and don't need to bring my current set. Both work fine with no issues. If none of you need them I'll have a scrapper take them away, but I figured I'd offer.
If you want them, you'll have to pick them up from me either tonight, tomorrow night, or sometime on Friday. I'm near Vancouver Mall.
I recently became fed up with Unitus when I discovered they do something fishy with the way they process your checks and report it to you. Basically, I wrote a check to a Comcast installer, Comcast later said it was cleared within 5 days, but after 10 days my online history still made no mention of it. After 8 PM on the night before my direct deposit would arrive in my account (and after my transaction history reported its anticipated arrival and the amount) I decided there was no harm in going to Target for a few things. Unitus would not process checks in the middle of the night, and anyway, they already know I have a deposit pending.
Actually, it turns out they do process checks in the middle of the night, and just before deposits arrive, too. I called Unitus about it and they insisted they received the check from Comcast at 10PM that night, when they claimed they processed it, and they charged me an overdraft, and I feared my check had also bounced, because the overdraft was on the check, not the Target transaction. Fortunately Comcast told me it had cleared several days ago and they were happy. But I was not. This is exactly the sort of shifty reordering thing that I left banks to get away from.
Obviously it is my fault for not keeping my own register, trying to use money I didn't have, and generally trusting in my credit union to act in my interest rather than in a predatory manner. Mea culpa, for all you "individual responsibility"-fetishists out there.
I know that Unitus outsources some of their services and I have no idea if this problem involves a third-party provider. Does anybody know anything about smaller credit unions, ie if they are more or less likely to use third parties in things like processing checks or online transaction histories?
And of course, I'm in the market for a new credit union - any recommendations? Thanks.

I recently picked up White Knight Chronicles for the PS3, and quickly learned that this game is just not for me. Would anyone here be interested in buying a once played copy of it for $30? Unless its value sharply dropped at the game store, that should beat out the used price gamestop and gamecrazy will be selling it for. The game isn't bad, it just isn't something I see myself playing any time soon, and I'd rather have the cash than the game or its trade in value.
