Bahnk?

“Bank” does not have a long A sound as in “plane”? Are you kidding me?  I pronounce it “baynk”.  And yet, look at the dictionary and there’s no line over the a.  It’s a short a as in “cat”. Either I’m mispronouncing the word or English is unreasonable. If English were a programming language, it would be JavaScript.
