John E. Body's name is mud at The Citizens Bank in Weston.
The farmer's account was closed after he left a trail of mud on a newly fitted carpet - twice in one week.``On both occasions, Mr. Body tracked in mud or some other substance onto the bank's carpet with his deep, cleated boots,' said Lewis C. Pellegrin, the bank's chief executive officer.
Body, in a letter to the Weston Democrat newspaper, argued that he hadn't been warned and would have used the bank's outdoor facilities.
Other banks in the town that ``care more about people than the carpet on the floor' had offered their services, he wrote.
``So thank you 'Pell.' I feel great doing my banking elsewhere, where the little guy with the dirty shoes is appreciated.'
