Bank Stories (7): Fantastic Plastic

NOTE: The following is Scoop's seventh bank story. Cameron has earned himself a double pass to The Bank movie, coming to a cinema near you soon. See... Scoop Interactive: Do You Hate Banks? for info on how you too can bend an ear or two and score a double pass to The Bank Movie.

Fantastic Plastic

I hate Banks, they can print their own money. I have to work for my money and they just lend it to themselves.

I once decided to be quite different and coloured my Eftpos card black. I coloured it with vivid and then coated it with a plastic adhesive. I did this because I didn’t want to fork out $5 for a new card.

Once I painted my card I got some of the video label stickers and stuck the letters from them onto my new card to spell out "Fascist Pig Bank" in a somewhat ransom note font.

Of course you can imagine the shop peoples reaction when I handed over my card to pay for stuff, the card still worked though!!...
