Sandeep Sathyanarayan shares a shocking experience he had at an ATM. You can share yours too

ATM machine

I visited the ICICI Bank ATM outside Vashi station in Navi Mumbai.

I inserted the (ATM) card, entered the amount to withdraw (money) and waited for the cash to come out.

But the machine fell silent!

After waiting for a moment or so, I tried to call the customer care from the phone placed at the ATM.

But as usual, the customer care was of no use and gave vague responses.

Finally, I decided to give up after about 10 minutes and started walking out, when the machine suddenly sprung back to life and dispensed the cash.

I was shocked to realise that the machine had dispensed the cash after nearly 10 minutes!

Had I walked out assuming the machine doesn't work, somebody else would have been gifted my money!
