Quote from: jobotic on July 03, 2022, 11:38:35 AMWhen my frown started working at the Halifax her name badge caused all sorts of problems.Her name? Abbey National!When she answered the phone she'd say, "Hello, Abbey National, Halifax" and customers would say "well, which is it?"Just thought of that joke in the shower. Fresh from my mind to you.

Quote from: somersetchris on July 03, 2022, 01:12:36 PMI can. I needed to re-activate a savings account and needed to appear in person in order to avoid any kind of identity fraud. Was not that long ago. I know some people who still pay me by cheque so I have to pay t hem in. Do I win?

Quote from: touchingcloth on July 03, 2022, 01:06:08 PMI'm far less concerned about the pronoun badges than I am about the fact that Halifax is employing facial expressions these days.
Quote from: dissolute ocelot on July 03, 2022, 05:07:12 PMTerfs want everyone to put a description of their primary sexual characteristics on their badges because BIOLOGY NOT FREE WILL. Although forehead tattoos at birth are the only way to be sure.
Quote from: somersetchris on July 03, 2022, 01:09:08 PMOh yes that is exactly the kind of thing the Mail and their readers had a fit about in the 80's. It's political correctness gone mad! I need to know what this woman's marital status is!

Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on July 03, 2022, 08:25:30 AMDoes anyone think they're doing this because they care about trans people? It's obviously for money. Banks don't care about your human rights, stop deluding yourselves

Quote from: Shaxberd on July 03, 2022, 10:09:22 AMAlso yeah others got to it first but if you don't want to put pronouns on stuff, don't, it's ok. A lot of people at my workplace do but I don't - I'm trans, my colleagues don't know because I transitioned ages ago and it's none of their business, I'd rather not stick my neck out because it's nice being able to take it for granted now.

QuoteHoward Brown, who is best known for being the all-singing all-dancing face of Halifax's catchy adverts in the noughties, has since responded amid the bank's row with customers, reports Yorkshire Live.Although he has been off the radar for a while and no longer works for Halifax, the 55-year-old has given his verdict after a member of the bank's social media team told customers they can close down their accounts if they don't like the companies change.Brown described the attitude towards customers as 'shocking, wrong and disappointing' and told the Daily Mail that he wouldn't want to wear a pronoun badge if he still worked for the bank...
QuoteJohn Mothersdale, commented on a Yorkshire Live post regarding the news, he said: "Glad I don't have an account with them then...saves me a job."Allen Bell added: "Strikes me as in trying to make people more comfortable, they have managed to make people more uncomfortable. If I had an account with them I would immediately close it not because of the badge changing, but because they are supposed to be looking after people's money not their gender."
