How pedantic are banks?

I suppose whether it is clear or not depends upon how well you know the
language.
Unconscious has a simple meaning, it means you passed out.
Subconscious always means your autonomic half of your brain.
Why use an ambiguous term?

Nope. Usually when someone is old, it's likely that all their relatives are younger than them. It's basic Maths.
It might be likely but likely is not the same as this being true for
everyone. Do you really not know any one without close relatives who can
oversee their day-to-day financial dealings?

I know of a number of the old folk have lost their partners and are
childless or have children who do not keep in touch or who live abroad
include one I used to help with shopping until he died.

A friend of mine also used to buy shopping and pay the bills for a very
elderly neighbour, until the day he found her dead on the floor when he
went round to take her food order. Turned out she did have a son living
somewhere in the midlands who turned up for the funeral but my friend
had never heard of his existence before then.

I even have a work colleague in her 50s who is a widow and who's only
close relatives are her elderly mother and a childless brother who has
lived on another continent for the last 25 years. There are a couple of
2nd or 3rd cousins that she has never met and they might well have
children but I doubt she's going to be giving them POA over her affairs
anytime soon.

So, as I said, stop being silly.

I guess you know some weird estranged families, and the people I know are more civilised, and look after their relatives.

I guess you just can't take the silly out of some folk.

What a childish answer. I repeat, the people I know are civilised, they look after their own families. To not do so is fucking appalling.

When I was a student in the 1970's I was surprised to find that the
Head of Department hated signing anything.

His senior secretary had a rubber stamp of his signature !!
Not particularly unusual, I believe.

I have used the motorway services car park, overnight in a camper van,
it was much cheaper than using a caravan park overnight and much more
convenient to find.
I take it you followed the rules and paid then. I didn't realise there was a possibility of doing that, I thought you had to use the motel.

I guess you don't get an electric hookup and water etc though, which is why it was cheaper.
