Eaten Alive by the ATM

On my way to the supermarket yesterday, I went to the ATM to grab some money. I put my card in, entered my pin, entered how much I wanted to withdraw, waited, waited, waited then…

BLANK!

It returns to the “Please insert your card” screen! The frikin ATM machine ate my card *grrr* I know I never entered the wrong pin number as it’s the same since I was 17 so it musta been a faulty machine!

I’m just so pissed, seriously! Luckily I had another account with some money in it and I went to another machine and got money out then went home and called the bank to get a new card sent to me (which will take a week!) and transferred all my money in that account to the other one ufff!

Damn machines!

    DAMN!!
    I really hate such accidents!!
    At least you had another account which was a bless that time!!

    It happened to me 2 months ago. The ATM ate my card too but worse than that was that I was traveling and had no money in my purse nor another account!!
