ATM Cash Machines

Did you know that if you exceed your overdraft limit on an ATM cash machine, the screen flashes the message:

Think again, pal. Your shelf is empty!


Actually, I just made that up. But it would be cool they did.

Don't you think the pixel-sized midgets who live behind the ATM screen have enough work to do - lifting up all those notes, and feeding them out of the machine every ten minutes or so? Give them a break! Some people are never happy.

Not only would that be cool, but the levity would be soothing.

Trevor, funny.

Missy, you would not find that message at all annoying if you were short of money?

Matthew, I suspect I could find it annoying if it did it all the time. :)

Maybe if there were random phrases with a similar message?

It is all very theoretical as I no longer have problems of this sort. I am overly-attentive to balancing my account in much the same way you are to wearing shoes indoors.

Sensible.
