C'mon now, there's no debating there's a problem there.
Im going to fetch 10 years of tinned food and going to hide in the mountains. Call me when this shitstorms over
can't she just go to her husband when she needs money?
Or people who just stand there staring at the screen as if there expecting a film to start.
doesn't ACTUALLY take out any money, AND THEN puts in another card. GET A FUCKING LAPTOP YOU DICK-CHEESEBURGER.
N.B. this doesn't apply when there's no queue (but you should ALWAYS be aware of a potential queue forming)
I mean that in all seriousness, not like just as a sexist stereotype. They can't use the fucking things. Like they can'y make gun noises or punching noises or play computer games.
THIS ARE ALL FACTS.
and then decide what to withdraw, unlike you careless oafs who just take it all out anyway.
I would like it noted for the record that I have absolutey no citation whatsoever in support of this, but at least I didn't say cunt.
1) Get your cash card out before getting to the machine - don't get to the cash point and then put your handbag on the keyboard and start to look through it for your card there and then
2) Type your PIN in quickly. You've done it hundreds of times before. Why wait three seconds between button pushes
3) You want money right? So don't read all the options onthe screen, swirling your finger in front before eventually deciding on the cash button
4) DO NOT get a receipt with your cash. You don't need one but we'll all have to wait whilst you do it.
5) If you've fucked up, which happens a lot seemily - Don't eject your card then wait for the machine to reset and put it back in again. Go to the back of the queue or have the manily humility to walk off and find another cash point.
6) Once you finally get your cash, don't then put your handbag back on the keyboard, open up your purse and then put the money in, then put your card away then leave. Just get everything and get out the way.
7) Remember these tips and carry them out EVERY time you get cash.
if you need to know your balance, but don't want to waste other people's time by fannying about checking the balance on screen, YES, get a receipt.
I do not walk away from a cashpoint with cash on display. it's like saying MUG ME! I won't step away until my money is securely hidden (i.e. stuffed in the bottom of my bag).
put your hand in your bag or put the money in your purse and then arrange what you need to on the walk.
your like those people that stop through a barrier/doorway to stop and look at a map/put ticket away/ put bag own.
also, if you're going to get mugged next to a cash point, they know you've already got cash on you as you've just been to a cash poibt so it makes no difference.
See! This is the problem with women at cash points!
whereas if you walk away flapping fistfuls of tenners*, you're inviting trouble.
*I don't think I've ever flapped fistfuls of tenners
I'd like them to not be attacked. Anyone who is a girl, and my friend, ignore what he said about that.
people would have prepped their purses and handbags whilst at the machine, ready for the immediate reception of the notes upon completion of the transaction.
i still agree with the point, but think that it should be prefaced with a point about how you should have your wallet/purse/handbag primed and ready, rather than opening up your bag AGAIN getting out your wallet AGAIN unzipping your wallet AGAIN carefully putting in the new notes in their rightful places then slowly zipping your wallet up AGAIN putting it in the right place in your handbag blablabla as plenty of people seem to do.
just to clarify, even though i'm talking about handbags and stuff, i definitely see lots of very slow men at cash machines.
the one thing that 99% of women DEFINITELY spend far too much time on, is peeing. oh god, the queues in women's toilets. but that is one for another thread.
and there's no urinals, so there's fewer actual toilets. Not because of the time women actually pee.
true re: there being fewer toilets as well, but i swear, most women seem to spend 2 minutes plus in the actual cubicle.
e.g. at St Pancras station there's about 10 cubicles. if there are 10 women in the queue in front of me, there is a minimum 15 minute wait. drives me mad.
IT TAKES TEN SECONDS TO PISS. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU ALL? :(
and plenty of female contributors aswell please.
just type it again, it's not a bloody test!
Just grab the notes and fuck off.
Sort out your wallet/purse later.
If you're as poor as some, you knows your funds. I think the ATM is Not the place to check balances, or multiple accounts - it wastes other people's time. *shields face*
I felt like a monster
If you're female, just two inserts of the cash card in one sitting seems reasonable. Nay, necessary.
So you ARE a lesbian?
and yes! Us women are so silly.
Otherwise men probably would've done away with you long ago.
Seems mean to talk about him behind his back.
I find myself attempting to operate the cashpoint via touching the screen
I'm sure I'm not the only one
Even I'm not that stupid.
it's called progress
how stupid is everyone else going to feel when cash machines go touchscreen and he's been tapping away at the screen for years?
I adapted well.
They've put ones on the new Chorlton metrolink extension. They don't fucking work. You have to try a variety of tapping repeatedly and holding down until you get a ticket. Bullshit.
Touch screen does frustate me. I don't know whats up with Sainbury's self-service screens because I have to hit the "I'M USING MY OWN BAGS" button about ten times.
Come, visit the future
so it's worth the trip
push in in front of you...
You could have been there for ten minues minutes and thenthey just walk in front of you. Then they get very angry when you palm them out of the way when you use the machine..
Bitches may have been queens of the school canteen queues back in the day but it doesn't transalte to realworld stuffz
male, female, tranny, don't care - JUST HURRY THE FUCK UP, it's not complicated
Now, girls who wait 10 minutes for bus, get on and only then at the oyster card reader decide to open their bag and rummage for the card - THAT'S ANNOYING. But genderwise tempered by the fact that people who try to barge on nightbuses and not pay and lead to the driver stopping the engine are almost always blokes
if you've got no cash in the bank printing off a mini-statement and reading it at the cashpoint isn't going to make cash appear.
and they turn around and like how can this be?
I DOn@T FUCKING KNOW ARGH JUST LET ME GET A TENNER I JUST WANT TO HAVE MY LUNCH
Anyone in front of me at a cash machine is doing it slower and wronger than I would.
Seeing as an A-380 has a greater wingspan (79.75m/261.6ft) than length (72.73m/238.6ft).
however, it is also true. There's no getting away from it. IT'S TIME THAT TRUTH CAME OUT. Let's have an inquiry.
and self service checkouts which is even worse because they say "please take your items" and i say thanks and it sounds like i think it can hear me
YOU NEED TO SCAN YOUR OYSTER AGAIN TO CONFIRM YOU FUCKING JEBEND.
constantly looking over their shoulder
YEAH OKAY I'M PEERING AROUND YOU AND TRACKING YOUR FINGERS BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I DON'T KNOW YOUR NAME YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER YOUR SORT CODE YOUR SECURITY NUMBER YOUR SECRET Q&S ETC ETC I'M SURE I'LL BE ABLE TO SOMEHOW STEAL ALL YOUR WEALTH WITH THOSE 4 DIGITS
it's a security measure against if you LOSE your card, why don't people understand this?
I expect the banks to get it right at least.
Which is short for PIN Number.
Hope it catches on.
Theo uses a sperm bank.
...you mean an ATM machine, right?
I can only come to the conclusion that:
A) You're skint and
B) You just hate women in general and have an underlying problem.
BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW I GOT MUGGED AND IT WAS FUCKING SCARY SO I LIKE TO TAKE A BIT OF TIME TO KNOW THAT EVERYTHING IS SAFE AND PEOPLE CAN WAIT FOR A FEW SECONDS.
I know my balance most of the time before I go to the ATM.
Where do we stand on queues where there are 2 or cashpoints?
1. A single, orderly queue, that allows the person at the front to access the next available atm?
2. A queue for each atm, containing at least one person who gets really fucked off if anyone joining another queue later gets cash before them?
I've seen number 2 happen a lot...
always get the card in the right way first time and everything.
than standing behind a guy waiting for a cashmachine when a few are clearly free. are they out of order? or is he one of those plebs who thinks he can only use the machine which has the same picture of a horse his card has?
oh no, it's a fucking woman.
