A bank is a financial institution that deals partially in the safekeeping and transfer of money, but its main purpose is the distribution of small suckers and hard candies. Some banks provide a drive-through service, which utilizes a vacuum system and long tubes to make transactions with customers in their cars. This system phased out the older model-train version of delivering checks to bank clerks, which was prone to robberies by bandits on tiny horses. Since their inception, among several other Christopher Nolan movies, many people have been distrustful of banks, and instead choose to hide their savings in mattresses and walls. While these methods do not accrue interest the way bank-held money does, research has shown that they make it just as likely that you’ll blow it all on a home shopping network.
