This actually happened yesterday evening and it scared the crap out of me! I put a check in the ATM like normal, but then it made a scary crunching noise and had an error message saying the check wasn't deposited. It didn't spit the check back out. PANIC. Called the number it says to call if the ATM has a problem, but it was after hours on a Sunday and nobody could help. EXTRA PANIC. Saw an emergency help line to call if there's a crime: this is an emergency - it's $500 freakin dollars! It's not like it's $25... it's $500! Got through thank God and it took a half hour to clear things up and get a credit. I'm so glad I thought to call that other number, and you should too if it happens to you. Most upsetting ATM experience ever. I guess it would be more upsetting if I got robbed though. Thankfully, things are cleared up. At least it inspired another Daily Misfortune.
In other news, Super Heroes for Hospice went ok on Saturday. Not as much of a turnout as last time, but still good. Had to do my presentation without my Power Point though, because their computer didn't have the program. Next time I'll have to bring my own. Luckily, I practiced beforehand and made notes, so it was still a good presentation.
In other OTHER news, I also submitted that talk as a panel for NYCC - fingers crossed that I get in! Just found out I was approved for a professional pass, so at least I'm in there somehow, but ideally I'd love to make a presentation and I'll keep an ear out if table spots open up.
