Found: One Used ATM on K Street

Look what I found on the street the other day: an automated teller machine.

No, it wasn’t the slowest ATM in the world, nor was it multi-lingual. From what I could tell, it was just a random Bank of America ATM.

No word yet on what is replacing it either. I really hope its another robo-ATM where customers can refinance Bolivian debt while they check their bank account balance.

Others may disagree – I hear ATMs that supersize withdrawals are quite popular. But I wouldn’t know, I always use tellers.

Yeah, tellers, that antiquated process where you talk to a human to get your money. Maybe that makes me old-school, but not once am I charged a “convenience fee” for the privilege.

And I might just be saving a teller from ending up like this ATM – out of a job.

    Hah! BofA finally replaced that damn ATM with a newer model that works much better. But they still have not installed a second one, which baffles me since there are so many customers on busy Georgia Ave. in downtown Silver Spring. Even the smaller banks around the area have two ATMs.
