Do you do stupid things when you’re alone?

Lemme tell you about another ATM embarrassing moment. (yup, i've got episode1 and episode 2)

The ATM booth I always withdraw from is, well, like any other glass-enclosed, sound proof booth...or so I thought. To make things more interesting, I strike a dialogue with the machine. Here’s how a typical conversation goes:

ATM machine: Welcome to your 24 hour call-in service (or sumthin like that)

Me: Oh thanks. How are you?

ATM machine: Please enter your 7 digit number.

Me: Ok, doing it.

Then here I start to sing out loud, (sometimes really loud, if the song calls for it)
~~.. one blaze of glooory..GLLOORRRRRYYYYYY!!!!..~

ATM machine: Would you like another transaction?

Me: Nope, I’m good.

ATM machine: Please take your card and cash, and transaction slip.

Me: Ok, thank you very much.

ATM machine: Thank you for using ***. At your service, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Me: Thank you very much. Bubbye.
One night, as I was withdrawing, I heard a giggle from behind the walls.


(I then discovered that no atm booth is soundproof... well, at least none of the booths I’ve sung concerts in)

those voices that you've overheard weren't really inside the atm machine. Mga boses yun from behind, sa mismong loob ng bangko. My friend here workks in a bank. Sila yung mga nagka-count ng mga transaction na pumapasok sa atm machines. They're counting all the cash na dinideposit from the ATM para mai-audit later. May speaker na nagko-connect from the outside [like where u are standing] direct from their system straight to the guard. Also may naka-hook din na camera. Yung mismong salamin na pinipindutan mo, andun ang camera, salo ang buong pagmumukha mo. So next time, don't just sing, SMILE ka rin bro. Pogi mo pa naman, ajehjeh! =)

mabuti na lang walang "select song" button yung ATM dahil kung meron, sigurago pagkatapos ng transaction mo lalabas yung score ng pagkanta mo.

salamat nga sa pagdalaw doc, este... duke.

Hot News From The Automotive Lending Industry!!

+++++++++Current Profile+++++++++
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp (IFLH)
Current Price $0.036

Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trade!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!

Doc Duke, I certainly would love to see you singing with passion. Do you read the Phil. Daily Inquirer? They featured in yesterday's biz pages a device they put on ATM machines that will allow people with criminal intentions to copy your password.

OT: Get rid of that spammer Duke. Click on that Fight Spam button that I have so you can fight back. Got that one from Sassy Lawyer.
