The ATM Machine
So every time I have to get money from these machines, I get nervous. I have also heard of the machines taking cards and you can't get them back. You have to contact your bank in the States and have a new one sent down. That could take months or never. I remember hearing about a man who lived in the motel where I was staying. He had this problem. For some reason he had to keep contacting the bank and several months later he still hadn't gotten his card and he was broke. Then he killed himself in the room. I doubt if it was just because of bank problems but sometimes I think of this man when I am shoving my card into the ATM machines and holding my breath in fear.
Today I heard the door rattling behind me. I was getting nervous. Was someone trying to get in to steal my money that I had just gotten out of the machine? I turned around and there was this little boy---smiling at me..... What a treat......
