This is a question Little Victories

I recently received a £2 voucher from a supermarket after complaining vociferously about the poor quality of their own-brand Rich Tea biscuits, which I spent on more tasty, tasty biscuits. Tell us about your trivial victories that have made life a tiny bit better.

Slightly curious...
"The ATM is built into the front wall of a bank, so you have to park your car and walk up to it."

Is that not normal?

Did give me the great idea of a drive through cash machine, unless the lazy merkins have already done that...

Some banks have drive thru machines.
In fact, most of them do these days. This particular one happens to be at a small branch, so they left the old style one in the building, but most have them as an extra lane at the drive thru area.

It makes sense, as it eliminates the need for additional parking for people wanting to use the ATM. You're going to wait in line anyway, so why have to accommodate more cars in the parking lot?

yankland, I could find little else but drive through ones.

Makes you wonder why they still had braille on the buttons though.

I've often wondered that as well.
Then I realized that the answer is that they use standardized parts for the ATMs, so they can put the same machine in the wall of a building or in a drive thru.

It's like the people I see who have dreamcatchers hanging from their rearview mirrors in their cars- you hope that they're not sleeping as they drive.

i'd never thought of that before.
