Banks with Bullet Proof Windows
February 2, 2016 11:04pm CST
I noticed the bank had bullet proof windows now, and even some Subway stores I have visited in the past are adding bullet proof windows. You interact to the teller or cashier/employees through the bullet proof windows. My thoughts? It is incredibly weird and good. Yes, their job can be risky, but what about the rest of the crowd who walks in? It just shows that going to the bank is not safe after all? And I do not even live in an unsafe area per se. Are bullet proof windows common in your area? What are your thoughts on bullet proof windows?

I am not sure what they're called. Bullet Proof Windows, Bullet Resistant Glass. I never really noticed, but select banks have them now. There are some robberies here and there but I don't think I live in a bad neighborhood. Do you feel awkward going into the bank? I feel like if anything was to go down ~ I'd be out in the open while the rest can be laughing safely behind the glass!!

It's sad but this should have been brought on by unfortunate incidences in the past. Over here, the banks tellers just have a computer, a drawer that can only be opened by the authorized teller and a security system notice that everyone can read that in case someone attempts to extend their hands over the line, then the security alarm will be detonated. I do online banking most of the time anyway.
