Racing the ATM and my personal soundtrack

Remember I wrote a while back about silly little things that I get a kick out of? I thought of another one.

I like to whip my cash card out of the ATM before the machine starts beeping at me so I don't forget it. Every time I do it, I think, "Ha! Beat you!" It still gives you one beep though. It likes to have the last word.


The other day I was listening to my iPod as I arrived home after work and the song My Happiness by Powderfinger was playing. As I walked in and put my bags down, Bernard Fanning sang, "So you come in and put your bags down".

Heheh. I've reached the point where I can beat the automatic checkout machine at Safeway when it starts asking for my payment and I use my credit card. Beating machines gives me a little kick, too. ;) (Don't ask me why! :) ) The other one I can think of at the moment is when I'm asked to enter a number for phone banking or something, and I type faster than it can relay the digits. :)

That's a cute synchronicity with your music, too!

The machine is stringing you along. Like those chess programs that pause before making their move just to make you feel good.

Hehe. I race the ATM like that too.
