Arrogant And Pompous...

I have been a multiple account holder and have had SEVERAL loans through this bank and I never ever had a problem. Until the loan officer I ALWAYS worked with retired. His replacement is arrogant to the point he smells of it. Extremely unprofessional when it comes to appropriate business language and lacks any measurable amount of class or tact. I'll be removing my money from this bank and looking for another.
