Life : ATM card

A story that worth to share.

Last 2 nite, I was at walmart. Buat groceries.
After I did the payment at the counter, I just remember that I need to withdraw money from may Maybank account and later transfer it to PEFCU account.
Normally, I prefer to use the National Bank ATM machine due to lower transaction charge (actually it is 50 cents different pon dari PEFCU). But knowing me, yg memang kalo boleh takmo loose even a cent pon. The 50 cents does matter to me.
So, this ATM Machine is different from PEFCU.
Kalo PEFCU, the first step, the machine will ask to insert the card and quickly remove it from the slot. Then continue with the pin number and so forth..
But, this particular machine will hold your card until the end of the steps, which is after received the money and receipt..then the card will eject out from the slot.
Ape yg terjadi was I forgot to claim the card after I got the receipt. I think it happens all the time to others too...ye la seronok dah dapat duit..mane nak ingat the card.
And plus, before tu, hubby call suruh balik cepat.
Knowing me yg memang slalu kelam kabut and gelabah.. I trus bawak walmart cart tu laju2 and drive balik rumah.
So the next day, I was trying to withdraw all the money left in my maybank account dekat PEFCU and trus ingat nak deposit the money to PEFCU account.
I was trying to search for my maybank card and guess what..
I just realized I didnt have it with me..menggelabah di buat nya.. mane tak nyer..
After 12 hours missing..my mind was blank...
Cuak gile ok!!
I trus gi walmart check with the bank ..mane la tahu the machine eject in the card after a long perid..unlucky, the card wasnt there..
Lagi I menggelabah. I was with Zara at the time.. dlm hati, mati la aku...
Then, the guy suggested me to refer to walmart customer service...
Pegi la situ..so that nice lady asked my name so she can check the cards that they keep in the office. Wasnt there.. bertambah menggelabah..
Then, I showed her my hubby's maybank card. She went back to the office and brought all the cards with her.
Patutlah she could not find my card. There was no name on it...
Nasib jumpe card tu...
After all, it was a BIG relief for me.

Moral of the story..jangan menggelabah mase kluar duit walaupon duit anda takde la sebanyak mane pon.
