And the Windows way is to click "ok" or "cancel" on any message or window
to get it to go away. They don't read 'em first, they just get rid of them
as quickly as possible. You could pop up a box that said "Click here to be
hit over the head with a salmon" with an "Ok" button and at least half of
the people that it was presented to would quickly click on "Ok".

Yup - happens fairly frequently. With most banks here, if you use an ATM
"out of the system" (meaning not belonging to your bank), you normally
get dinged a couple of bucks, occasionally a couple percent. With
some other banks, you get dinged even when you use the ATM that belongs
to your bank. Several years ago, there was a major bank here that
decided that you talking to a real person was worth an extra fee (as
they wanted you to use their ATM so they didn't have to pay the
wages of a teller). I closed that account on the spot.
