* I just got off the phone with E*Trade. Before we close the account, I have to get the stock out of it. To have them send me certificates will take 3-6 weeks. Ok, fine, whatever. Oh, it'll also cost $40 per security. Um. $160, for a total of 13 shares of stock, worth a total of $521.74? Fuck you, no. ONE of them is a single share worth $14.66, and E*Trade's standard price is $40 to get my fucking stock OUT of your system? FUCK YOU.
I did not say that on the phone. I said it was stupid and ridiculous and outrageous. And then I hung up and hit my desk and yelled a lot at anybody who would listen.
My left hand hurts.
* On phone again, to see if I can get the fees waived or adjusted.
