On the other hand, I think that's how most of the banking got done on 'Star Trek'

Reasons the new pneumatic tube at my bank drive-though is making me nervous:

1.) I figure if I choose the tube over the window, they’ll think I’m trying to cash a check I just found on the sidewalk.

2.) I find it difficult to carry on a meaningful conversation with the teller through that 2-inch speaker -- I always feel like I’m talking to Carlton the Doorman.

3.) I know that I will inevitably drive away with the little canister in my car, prompting a manhunt.

Other than that, it’s a great invention.
