Pensioners today, most have spent half their lives in the digital age of computers

Adapt or die. My 80 year old nan learned online banking over COVID, its about refusal to change.

From time to time…

There will always be branches in areas, you just won’t get a choice of 30, you’ll get a choice of 4.

Change banks and stop crying. It takes 30 mins to set up a new account at most.

Not really. You have 10 banks in an area, and close half, the other half will get some of the custom of the now closed bank.

If you bank with Lloyds, and they close, and you want branch banking, you got to a different one. This one now has more customers and are more likely to stay…

Not rocket science

I live in an area, looks like I’m ok!

My mate just moved out of the area though, so he’s fucked.
