I have been getting a good bit of spam in LJ, usually on one specific posting from 2009. Usually the posting is in Russian. The one I just got, though, was in Hebrew.

On Monday I was in a section of town I'm not usually in, and saw a bank, and remembered that I needed cash. I had to get out of the car to reach the ATM, and just before I got my money a car pulled up behind me. Ok, I'll admit I was exhausted (the weekend had been filled with way too little sleep and way too much hard work) and maybe a little flustered. I took my money, popped into the car, and drove away.

A short way down the highway a car pulls alongside and toots its horn. And I see the driver holding up my ATM card. I thanked him at the time, but I send up a further thanks to tell the universe about the young man who didn't need to, but who got onto the highway in a difficult-to-get-back-to location without first doing whatever he'd gone to that bank to do.

I would feel no less grateful, but somewhat less chagrin, if I had not managed to leave my card in an ATM about 2 weeks before.

Wow! That was wonderful of the guy to go to the effort he did to return your card. I once left my card in an atm years ago and had to get a new one. It's so nice when things work out the way they did for you :).

I was beyond pleased. He's surely paid it forward, and I hope good is returned many-fold to him and his.

Interesting - I've noticed that American ATMs work strangely - here, an ATM will not produce the cash until you've taken the card.

I've always thought our system was the more sensible...

I tend to agree.

(But if I'm going to be exhausted/scatterbrained, what are the odds that someone would chase after my car waving a stack of $20s?)
