Yes, I'm aware. I do that all the time. (I do have to pay bills and so forth.)
I'm just not able to think of a bank account as anything concrete. To me, it's just numbers on a page. Visualising "different" numbers on a web page is pretty meaningless in my mind, and quite empty. I know what it's SUPPOSED to symbolise, etc, and I can act within the parameters of the account balances, but it just hasn't got the same meaning to me as it might have to other people.
