ATMs and weekends

In case you are [sadly] foolish enough like me to roam around markets without carrying money and just the poor ATM card … Don’t rely on the ATM’s – especially from friday nights till Monday mornings …!

I inserted my card in one machine at F-10 markaz … it said your card’s nt in right condition (the message was something like this) — I was like what the hell…? inserted in adjacent machine and it said … The machine is out of money … oh bhai, it’s still 9 PM and it’s just a friday … was what I exclaimed …!

Then I tried another ATM – that was out of money too … !

I dont know why they dont put enough cash in the machines for weekends :-(

Tip of the week[ends]: Never ever rely on ATMs in your life …!


The good thing was – no cash no spending ;-) bacchat hii bacchat ;-)

    Funny, how banks are the same everywhere.

    They like to earn as much interest on our money as they can…even if it is for one day. Bankers are a clever bunch.

    You should be thankful to the ATM A for [pine]Apple for not having “eaten” your card up besides not giving you any cash. That has happened to me…:”(

    Mu: Banking business seems to be same everywhere – prior to this digitization, I guess bankers here were more efficient — now most of them have become lethargic in their dealing – regardless of which ever bank they are in …!

    1967: Hmmm that too has happened once – dont worry – and that too in another city ;/
