I've seen this behavior a lot as well. People screw up, and decide some one else should be punished for it. Or even if they didn't mess up their finances and they just fell on unexpected hard times and couldn't pay, what is the point of making the bank pay for your misfortune? It's as if people expect banks to either let them have the house for free or they'll punish them by doing thousands and thousands of dollars in damage to it.
Seriously. Alaska anyone?
