y cómo éstos, muchos de avanzada edad, se dirigen a ellos como si fueran de la familia, con una confianza enternecedora, seguros de que están recibiendo las mejores explicaciones y consejos posibles de aquellos a quienes confían sus ahorros, inquietudes y esperanzas.
As if!

Just take a look at the great 3a pillar advice people get in Switzerland when they talk to vendors instead of reading up on their own about their options.

Or the old people who went in for the banca etruria bs in Italy. Suggested by their trusted branch consultant of course.

Atados a una madeja de contraseñas, toques en móviles, aplicaciones que convierten en un calvario lo que antes se solventaba en una sucursal mediante un rato de espera, un papel y una firma, obligados a moverse por un mundo virtual que ni conocen ni les interesa conocer, millones de abuelos, y no tan abuelos, miran hoy desconcertados la pantalla de un teléfono móvil con las siglas de un banco a cuyos accionistas, gerentes y técnicos, ajenos a la realidad inmediata de la vida, les importan literalmente un carajo. Y que, para más recochineo, te tutean en sus comunicaciones en plan compadre y oye, chaval, como si alguna vez hubieseis tomado copas juntos.
