All my friends and family have always shamed me for being a Bank of America customer. "They charge you for everything," they all moan, wagging their fingers.
But now, my bank - one of the only banks on solid ground right now - is buying up other, failed institutions. So now, all my friends and family who just had to tell me what a financial fool I was are having their banks, mortgages and broker firms snatched up by... wait for it... Bank of America. I would rub it in their faces, but I kind of feel bad for them.
