One day i praised, the automated teller machines but today i say ..................
Before i move on to what i want to write, let me say that i am little good at remembering any money available (remaining balance) in the savings accounts i maintain. Thankfully.
i have few bank accounts at some private and public banks here, though the remaining balance is not sometimes 'satisfactory'.
So the incident that i am trying to share today is related to the Savings Bank Account that i maintain at the People's Bank, Sri Lanka.
My salary straight a away goes to my bank account.
for what ever money i withdraw, i do not sometimes request receipts because i often like to give machines or who ever trouble me second chances, human errors, machine errors.
But i do not normally forget any of the incidents happened regarding what ever, carrier or otherwise.
Reason is if you forget things happened or happening, that means you do not get chances to use that experience for your own good.
As i mentioned earlier, i often like to trust the ATM machines other than people but the fact i forget is finally things such as, 'who maintains them' : - )
It is individuals
Other thing is you cannot keep the receipts that the ATM machines issues for so long because of the ink type they use i assume.
You cannot collect them as records and use them for what ever future purposes / uses
i think the techno people must think of such as well, to provide QUALITYFULL SERVICE .
so let me move on to the incident happened today
Today, Actually, what was available in my pocket was less than 50/= rupees. Suddenly a hundred rupee note came in to my mind. Purpose behind thinking of withdrawing a hundred rupee : - ) is buying some Green Grams for my mother, thinking of cooking some Milk rice using Green Gram for her.
She was little unhealthy according to the tests ( Medical) done
i decided to move onto that option, because i very well remembered the machine indicated the other day, as the ' WITHDRAWABLE AMOUNT = 404.
Knowing that i entered the amount 400/= that is to withdraw
Unfortunately, though the machine indicated i could withdraw 404 rupees about a week back , it didn't allow me to withdraw that amount
So, i thought, alright ............, let me withdraw 300/= rupees then
keeping the hundred and four i withdrew 300/= .
i came home with 300 rupee amount but the remaining amount very well stamped in my mind.
So today, because of the need i wanted that hundred rupee. Because it is not a property of the bank. i always consider a bank as a helper and as a facilitator, a friend in need, in deed
you may feel like laughing , but that is the situation
i am not a millionire. You all know that.
i could have become a at least fifty Thousandanier but because of my idiotic policies of living ( I learned today) i had to depend on few thousands i earn.
Unfortunately some cheat or like to play with the hundred rupees the people like we have.
It is something like Sh-- right ?
i do not know how much money the banks are charging, for we using the ATM machines.
I thought that is a free service the banks offer for their VALID CUSTOMERS, rich or poor.
Normally even for a tiny 'cent', available in any bank accounts 'what do you add?
Is it possible to decrease, deduct any amount from the remaining balance at any cost?
Oh! i forget to tell you, today the bank showed 99. 12/= AS REMAINING BALANCE
amazing right : - )
Is it something that you can expect?
Any advice you would like to give, analyzing this?
let me link this to an incident happened in the past.
About six months ago or so i remember trying to withdraw a hundred rupee i had in my account. i faced the same situation. (i know some know it, let me not re write). But i couldn't withdraw it. The machine indicated that 'remaining balance is insufficient for me to withdraw that Rs. 100/=
what had happened to the hundred that was in my account?
i didn't know
i didn't inquire
i forward that error in to the account of 'human error' / machine error : - (
so i walked back home.
in about one or two weeks later, (i remembered and have not forgotten the incident happened) i wanted to check it again.
Somehow, what happened was ' the hundred rupee has returned in to my bank account'. in one word it 'reappeared'
isn't that amazing
so i didn't loose the hundred rupee but the game continued i thought after facing the incident today
if i had 104 rupees in my bank account on that day, lets say about a week ago, what has happened to
Rs.104 - 99.12= ?
what is the reason for the machine to indicate that the account has only 99.12 only?
i could have withdrawn hundred rupee today and bought some green gram, if that money had not disappeared from my bank account
God Bless you ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!
