Instincts! A Warning

Post by Who2 »

For years I have never used ATM's on the West Bank due to my suspicions and instinct.
Today and catering for 7 guests, I used the new ATM ........'It swallowed my card.

The 'red rage descended pretty quick, I went fff..mental!
The top man said he'd sort it, not quick enough for me..

Hour and a half later with signing this and that and 'have you got your pass port ?
"Have I f...what ? ffff give me that card right now!
"Do you want to draw out any money ?

I answered in the negative and told him where to shove his bank..especially his ATM's
So, you have been warned and always always follow you instincts.... 8)

Ps: They never even put tape over it or turned it off, when I left a 'copper was using it,
I had to think twice before I warned him. 'I'm a nice guy..

Nick has just returned from said Bank, I had warned him don’t use the ATM.
He tried, but failed to get cash over the counter and had to use the ATM.

Seems that the same guy said “Your friend seemed quite angry earlier on.
‘How did he know Nick was my mate ?
Nicks’ reply was “He’s at the end of his tether, you know ‘Kids ?.... 8)

Ps: He was probably referring to me as being a kid & I kid you not.
Pss: New Years Eve at Marsam, should be fun...Happy New Year.

I used it the other day worked fine but only gives up to 2000le and all in 50s.
Hafiz don't know if the west bank machines are more reliable than the east, I certainly wouldn't use them normally but have a very bad cold so didn't want to travel across the river.
