I'm so tired of this B.S. with these thiefs. Tight on cash? Walk on up and take what's not yours! Where's the deterrent? Does all bank business need to be restricted to the drive-through to stop this nonsense? Do tellers have to lose their jobs for the sake of some joker who apparently feels entitled to the fruits of someone else's labor? And any apathy due to a deep-pocketed bank theory doesn't hold water. In the end, the costs of this action ultimately fall back to the bank members one way or another via fees and increased charges. However, appears bank members unwittingly support gangsters/terrorists anyway - thanks, HSBC.
