After Office Hours

Our lifestyle means that we're burning through cash at a surprising rate, so before going out last weekend we were going to head to the ATM to get some more money, but we were warned it would cost us 600 won to make a withdrawal as the bank was closed. It seems withdrawals are only free during bank opening hours. 600 won (about 30p) isn't a lot of money, but after all the service you get from the banks here - like being text messaged every time your card is debited, it came as a surprise.

British banks might be envious of this idea, but on the other hand I imagine that if they implemented the text messaging for credit card use, it might cut down considerably on their fraud liabilities.
