National City, what were you thinking!

I click on the bookmark into my checking account at nationalcity.com and was immediately jolted into thinking I had gone the wrong place. I quickly shut down my browser, cleared the cookies, and panicked. I then went in again and saw the same thing! Then, I realized October was breast cancer month and the whole word is pink instead of the usual green.

National City, what the heck were you thinking! The entire banking industry is in turmoil, people are nervous about their money and you go and change one of the fundamental things about you that says “trust us”? Why would you do that?

I know breast cancer is important and National City is a big supporter. That is ok. But, next year, please, please, please forgo the pink facelift and make a big pink ribbon on the side or something. Don’t mess with the foundations of your web site.

And that trustworthy green is a big foundation.

About Rufus Dogg

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+

    You are kidding right?

    It would be nice, if instead of spending the time and money to repaint their website for one month, they simply donated that time and money to research to fight cancer.

    But that would be the practical thing to do, and sadly, people tend to enjoy a show rather than action when it comes to solving a problem.

    @Ricky Good idea… next October, Rufus and crew will start a drive to make National City aware that their money could be better spent.
