I don't know about everyone else, but I almost never use my ATM card. I haven't used it in probably 2 years. But I have one anyway, and I keep it on me in case I need it. So the other night I went out with my girlfriends and I had specifically put some cash aside because it's always easier to pay cash when in a group.
Well, of course I wouldn't remember my cash. I haven't remembered anything since my daughter was born so why should this be different. So I run to the ATM. I can't for the life of me remember my pin. The line behind me is growing and I am pressing numbers left and right trying to get my money and stop embarrassing myself.
I finally have to step to the side and call my husband! "Help! I need you to tell me my pin number!" Darling husband, "why would I know your pin number, it's YOUR pin number." FABULOUS! Get back in line, try again. "You have exceeded your number of tries." The machine starts bugging out. It's throwing receipts out at me and beeping and flashing like I was trying to rob the thing!
Again, I am so embarrassed. A grown woman looking like a freak at the ATM machine. So I get out of line... again. I wait a couple minutes and finally I'm SURE I remembered my code. I get back on line, type in my code.... "Your account has been frozen." AWESOME.
At least the night got better from there! I charged my meal and had a wonderful night with the girls. My account is still frozen. Whoops :)
