Has anyone else ever absent-mindedly thanked a cash machine?
...or is that particular idiocy reserved solely for me. And yes, I was stone cold sober I'm sad to say.

That'll be me
Done that far too many times, it's worse when there's a queue behind.

I have a friend who *always* says 'thank-you' to ATMs
But she's a bit mental anyway.

I see you have a rather bad case of "British". May I suggest at least a week in the Middle East supporting the wrong side; that should sort your manners out.

I've thanked Israeli cash mashines too :(

They never say 'you're welcome' either, the bastards

They also seem to hold
on to the cash just that little bit tighter ;)

two guys I was at school with went to a cash machine one day. neither of them were particulalrly bright.

guy 1 takes his cash out and says to guy 2 "I wanted a statement"
guy 2 replies: "you need to ask it for one"
guy 1 leans close up to the screen of the ATM and says "can I have a statement please?"

I feel so glad
That not only am I not alone, but there's whole other levels of folly I've yet to discover. Oh, and thank christ there was no queue.

Done it!
Also, as other people here, have left without the money.

Problem was i was about to put money into an account to pay a bill....
put card in
£300 please
remove card
run (banks close in ten minutes)
Run back after 20 seconds with heart in mouth
Money still there *phew*
Take money and leave

Return a minute later to pick up the phone i'd left lying on the ATM...balls
