Engurish and banks.

    So, today, my Engurish finally learned something new.

    • there is On Deposit, the amount after put my check in.
    • there is Available Now, the amount that is calculating my interest.
    • there is End of Day Balance hidden in the detailed report table, is the amount I can actually withdraw.

    For all these years, I thought Available Now means I can get all of them out after I deposit a check, which was wrong. My poor poor Engurish. This is going my citibank vocabulary, not sure how other banks use their words.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    You have my sympathies. I eventually fled my Big Bank and left for saner pastures (aka credit union/online bank).

    The unfortunate part is that this doesn't have to be a mystery. Back in the day, when I deposited a check, World Savings would give me a small slip of paper that said (approximately):

    Available Now: $50
    In 10 Days: $X + $50
    In 20 Days: $Y + $X +$50
    (and so on)
