My boss just came from Wachovia Bank and he said it was crazy at the branch. Everybody is pulling their money out. He can’t even find a parking. Can you blame the depositors? No! It’s their hard earned money and with an economy that is so unstable like this you just want peace of mind.
Not even in a week’s time, another big U.S. bank is sold. Wachovia Bank , one of the nation’s largest bank is sold to Citigroup. This happened only few days after the government’s seizure of Washington Mutual which was purchased immediately by J.P. Morgan Chase. Citigroup will take over Wachovia’s banking operations, expanding Citigroup’s retail outlets, making it one of the Big Three in the U.S. banking industry together with Bank of American and J.P. Morgan Chase.
I used to work at First Union Bank which is now the Wachovia Bank. I was still with them when Wachovia first acquired First Union in 2002 (I think). I still have friends there which I sometimes visit at their drive up window. I hope they will not be affected by this recent change.

Your order comes in a big brown bag. They call your number at the counter as soon as your food is ready. Sometimes it takes longer during peak hours but people patiently wait. This is where the peanuts come handy.
