THOSE DARN ATMS

Tom DeLorey writes: "Apropos nothing at all, though it does involve
money, I have a small story to share. Coming home from the ANA
convention, I was waiting at the baggage carousel at O'Hare when I
overheard a fellow passenger complaining to the friend who had come
to pick him up about how much money he had lost on the service charge
for converting some Canadian money into U.S. money.

It seemed that he had placed his ATM card into an ATM machine in
Vancouver, British Columbia, and was shocked, shocked to receive
Canadian money out of the machine! He had thought that because his
bank account was in U.S. dollars, he would automatically receive
U.S. dollars out of the machine."
