NFT: Man gets locked inside ATM; puts help notes as receipts

Mike in Long Beach : 7/13/2017 3:40 pm
Shocked customers at a Texas ATM got more than cash from the money machine when a technician trapped behind it slipped notes through the receipt slot begging for help, police said.

Corpus Christi police said the unnamed man, who is a contractor, got stuck in an ATM room at a local Bank of America while attempting to change the lock on the machine, according to Fox 8.

The envelope slot to send his notes he would have had more room to write messages and may have escaped earlier

He should have messed with some of the customers by sending notes like " "you have negative 100,000 in your checking account" or "You smell"

about a decade ago I was a regional manager for BAC. One of the branches I managed had quite the reputation as pranksters. One of the pranks they would pull regularly is entering into the ATM service room with a microphone and small speaker, then watching as customers approached. They would speak to them in an "ATM voice" through the mic, and they would personalize their comments to the customers they recognized. Funny stuff.

Of course this wasn't even close to their best office prank, which I personally orchestrated and enjoyed very much. Come to think of it - office pranks - might be a topic for an NFT thread. I'm leaving on vacation and do not expect to be on BBI much, wonder if I'll miss an epic thread.
