I was getting impatient waiting in line for this ah-pek to finish his transaction after transaction. It was like he was trying to close his bloody account at the ATM....and I wanted to shout at him, 'Ahpek! To close account you have to go inside and close your account, you know!' but it would be really rude and mean for me to do that.
So, I hum a song, tap my toe, imagine that I am in Hawaii and that a handsome hunk was standing at my side. Better still, that handsome hunk in my imagination would be doing naughty things to my ear and throat. Probably biting considering my fixation with Vampires these days.
So, this ahpek outlasted about three people in another line and I am turning purple in the face with the waiting. The problem is that he was pressing evvvveerrrrr sssoooooo ssslllloooowwwwllllyyyyy, and when he gets his cash, he counts the money there and then. He doesn't trust the ATM machine to do it right!
I can hear the people behind me sighing and making really rude noises by now but Ahpek is probably half deaf and he can't hear any one of us. So, he counts and counts and counts. Then he put his ATM card back into the machine for another round. I don't know how many bloody cards he's got but felt like he had at least five. Or eight. Or ten. Who knows, right?!
Some people hopped onto the next line already but I was right behind Ahpek, so, there was a glimmer of hope that he would be done with his LAST CARD....SOON!!!! I mean, there's only so many cards a person can have and so many transaction a person can perform, right? A person would have to have balls of steel to withstand the glower that waiting customers would throw him and the silent curses we were hurling at this poor old man.
But poor old man was taking forever!!!
Where got people count money after withdrawing from ATM machine wan? I mean....machines don't mistakes, right?
On second thought, maybe Ahpek is not so stupid after all, huh?
