Now that all of the government's recovery money is gone with no recovery in sight, you'd think that businesses would do anything to keep consumers, right?

Tell that to the Starbucks manager who wouldn't let a customer get a refill because he stepped outside. Or the department at Bank of America that's insisting a Pittsburgh man travel to Texas to close his dead mother's account.

Or the manager at the 24 Hour Fitness in Beaverton, Oregon who rescinded the buy-one-get-one free offer of protein bars.
