I Want to Quit the Bank!

B and I are consolidating accounts, going with his bank for checking as they're easier to access and manage online. I called my bank today to move funds and ask about closing accounts. Went a little something like this...

Me: So all I have to do is go to the bank, withdraw the money, and then call you and ask you to close the checking account?

Bank Guy: That's right. We prefer to close accounts over the phone, actually. And we'll be able to see that the account is empty.

Me: Great! That's so easy.

Bank Guy: I mean, they will have to give you a check.

Me: What?

Bank Guy: They can't just give it to you in cash.

Me: So no briefcase then?

Bank Guy: Exactly.
