I do online banking now. For cash use ATM which is open 24/7. So this has not been a problem for a while.

#1 reason: I hated my job! I worked for a wonderful software company for 20 years, where we all worked hard and were given opportunities to advance, we all worked as a team, and the customers were our top priority. And then a German conglomerate bought us. The whole environment changed to one of "we v. they", billable hours, and process, process, process. We were miserable. I left after another seven years and was never so happy.

There are still queues at the bank. As long as they were 50 years ago. Wonder who they are.

Unchained as of this past week. I'm a newbie to retirement, and up for the next adventure. I would say, freedom is the best thing about retirement...so far.

1. Freedom to do what I want, when I want; or not at all. And;
2. A comfortable existence that allows me to do #1.
