that's it...I'm putting my money in a mattress...

my gods-be-damned bank just decided to assess my savings account a $20 "maintenance fee." No further explanation, just "maintenance fee." Now. the only fee I'm aware of is if my savings balance drops below $200, and that's a $3.50 fee...I'm wondering what in the wide wide world of sports this magical maintenance is that merits a $20 fee.

I've emailed them to politely demand an explanation, and if I don't get a satisfactory one, I will be closing my savings account with them, and shopping around for a new bank entirely (although moving my accounts everywhere away from my debit card will be interesting.)
