    I'd say this was a full blown code butterscotch. It's not until code hot fudge (along with some staining of your drawers) that you really need to worry.



    OK my real and serious response to this thread: If you see some fishy stuff happening when you pull up to the atm then drive away. Just go two blocks to the next one and get your money there. This aint rocket surgery.

This type of thread has been repeated many times and it seems that everyday in the paper there is someone who has been robbed at an ATM---does anyone understand the FULL AND COMPETENT use of situational awareness?
    It is when I bank at TCU and the closest bank that I get free transactions at is an IMCU which does not do inside transactions.

    I guess it all worked out alright. I ride my bikes when home so I don't have an issue pulling up to an ATM, unless there is someone behind me I get off the bike and walk up to the machine.

    At different times there have been people around but no one has ever attempted to lean on my Harley though.

    Not quite sure what you are telling me. I guess you are saying that there is no convenient no fee bank that will give you cash if you go inside the bank. Looking for a bank that will meet your no fee needs that is very convenient vs the opportunity to be an unfortunate statistic at an ATM is not smart situational awareness. With interests rates being what they are, I cannot believe that you cannot find a bank that may not be that close---one that you have an account with with all that free fee stuff they give out---and cash out say $500 and keep it safe in your house for your monthly cash reserves--the lost interest is a pittance but there is no need for Code Red, Orange or whatever color of the rainbow you may use. And yes, you can still be robbed leaving the bank building but I am sure the statistics on that robbery vs an ATM robbery are very one-sided in favor of the dangers at an ATM.

    I should probably add this all happened in broad daylight, put in the same situation at night, I would have kept on going

    Especially in a dangerous area at night or something... It definitely wouldn't make feel warm and fuzzy all over.

    It could be the first step to a situation that might get out of hand very quickly. It could also be step one for some dirtbag receiving a dirtnap.

    I wouldn't have even slowed down had I seen them loitering there. There are just too many desperate despicable people.

    I bet there was another ATM within one block of that bank.

    Being colorblind as well, I just learned something extremely useful.
