Yes, I'm writing fiction. So let's say I want to withdraw $100,000 from a U.S. bank account, in cash. How long does it take for the bank to pull the money together for me? An hour? A day?

Bonus question: Since most law-abiding private citizens don't keep that much cash on hand, what precautions do they take in case they think I'm using it for nefarious purposes? Do they alert law enforcement? Record the serial numbers? Mark the bills? (How do they mark the bills?)
