Screw you, banks

As if the total collapse of Wall Street, ensuing economic disaster, and total lack of justice wasn't enough reason to hate banks - there was probably enough reason before that too - now my bank is finding new ways to mess up my day/week/month.

Despite alerting them that I would be in India for the next 6 months, my account has been frozen by the fraud detection unit and I can't do anything about it over e-mail.  I have to call, on a phone, like this is 1890.  I can't call because we don't have a functioning phone.  It turns out our phone was shut off because the alternate phone number provided is in the States and Idea! does not authorize branches to make international calls.  Maybe I need a new tag for Frustration.
