I'm not shocked either. A family member had a "mid life crisis" of sorts and drained their 401k. They haven't contributed a dime since and are 50 years old right now.
I don't even consider my 401k as an option for anything unless it became the most severe of situations. Even then I'd think twice.
Plus a lot of the people I work with are paying back their 401ks right now. They think it's just a glorified savings account they can dip in to when they feel like it. There is a major lack of financial education in this country.
