In these troubled times

So yesterday evening I was heading down to the pub, and I needed to get some money out of an ATM along the way. I keyed in my PIN and waited… for what seemed like far longer than the instant it normally takes the machine to start spitting out money.

"Oh noes", I thought. "The banking system has collapsed!".

Maybe ATMs are becoming sentient and are now pausing to consider whether it's in their interests to let you have the money.

What's your PIN again? I have some money I would like to transfer to your account.
