For those of you working at BB&T, no one blames you for defending the company. I used to work at BB&T and it needs defending at times. For those who used to work at BB&T, or still do and have issues, why don't you just leave. Cleanse yourself of all the bitterness and just let go and move on. Sell your stock, quit the company, and leave all the crap far behind you. If you work in Wilson you might even need to get out of town for awhile to remind yourself that there are other options out there. You are not going to change the minds of the people there or the ones whose entire lifes are devoted to BB&T. Who cares what they say. You probably deserve a much better life than you have at BB&T anyway. Go for it.
