I lost my free checking after 19 years of loyalty

I first opened my account in 1992.  At that time, the bank was called Great Western.  They were acquired by Washington Mutual in 1997.  Wamu of course succumbed to the 2008 financial meltdown and was engulfed by Chase.   I can avoid this fee by having a direct deposit of at least $500 a month, which I did. But I had to cancel other accounts to implement this.

I put up with this for now because of only one reason.  It's the only account number that I have completely memorized!  In fact, after 19 years, I don't think that I can forget it and it will always be the first number that comes to mind.  But I'm just waiting for Chase to implement some other bull crap before I ditch them.  They've lost my loyalty.

When searching Evil Chase Bank for this post, I was surprised at how many sites and stories came up. Do you have any horror stories with Chase or any other banks?
