A Nation of Inconvenience Regretted People?

A funny thing happened to us just now. It's a known fact that financial institutions have the worst websites in the business. So, we are normally reluctant to visit them, knowing what we will get there as a prescience, sort of. Our reaction to such sites is AAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGG! 

Hence, we were prepared for disappointment when we visited this loan website and promptly got the message "The website is under maintenance till September 21, 1 p.m." Well, it's September 21, and it's 1.05 p.m. so we refresh again and still the same message persists, as it would, we assume, for a few days more. What's this? They should have probably added, "If the site isn't working inconvenience regretted." Which is the standard excuse trotted out. Are we a nation of inconvenience regretted people?
