We had asked you, dear readers to share your good and bad ATM experiences.
Dubai-based Abhishek Sinha shares his disappointing experience. You can share yours too!
Few years ago, I was living in Noida.
One day, I went to the Noida Sector 10 ICICI bank ATM to withdraw some cash.
When I inserted my card in the slot and carried out the transaction, the ATM did not dispense any cash. It displayed (the message) 'Unable to dispense cash.'
Disappointed with the situation, I cancelled the transaction. However, my card did not come out of the machine.
I asked the guard present about it.
He said, "It is a normal problem." When I asked him for a solution, he said that I will have to contact my bank's branch.
It was so unfortunate as I didn't have any money and my card was also stuck in the ATM machine.
Out of anger, I punched the ATM machine twice. All of a sudden, my ATM card came out of the card slot.
I was so relieved at that moment as I now had the option of withdrawing money from some other ATM.
I think sometimes, these ATMs need thrashing to work properly.
