    I can tell you what NOT to do - place your gun on the counter and say, "I'd like to make a withdrawal."

    On a more serious note, how long have you been waiting when you observe that no one is coming out?

    what do you do
    Roll my eyes, because that doesn't sound unusual for my bank now. And if you go inside, be prepared to wait forever becuase everyone in the place is slower than Christmas.

    I would go about my normal banking business, until I saw something that really caused me to think otherwise.

    There could be a staff meeting taking place and all but a few tellers in the lobby were in the meeting causing the drive through to be closed. The drive through simply could have had an issue with the air tubes causing it to be shut down, so all the people who usually do drive through banking are now in the lobby.

    Keep your wits about you, pay attention to details and live your life. When and if it ever gets to the point where SHTF, be ready.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Second time in three months I pulled up to a bank and it WAS being robbed.

    You know that feeling that something just is not right trust it.

    Just call 911, wait and watch from a distance.

    what do you do
    This might not EXACTLY answer your question but here goes...

    I keep the getaway car running. If I want to see my cut, that is!

    Deploy my CCW sash and badge, blade myself to the door and call for back up and a pizza.

    I go someplace else.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Since it was a Monday, it was probably a bank holiday, and the cars were from the restaurant next door.
