It really bothered me seeing all those pieces of paper on the street in Jounieh (for a bank that I won’t name :P )! Usually when ATMs are inside the bank, they have a trash can next to them (which minimizes the thrown tickets), but when the ATM is on the street, it can get really messy! Good thing we have Ella to calm us down :) Here’s a song dedicated to you! ‘It’s Only A Paper Moon’ by Ella Fitzgerald. Have a lovely day :)

    lool this is hilarious Maya! and you underline a good point as well! amazing as usual!

  4. ZuZ Says:

    totally true! and take it from a bank employee, they actually have a small container to throw the receipts, but are emptied once a day! AND are really small!

    i loved the robotic hands, they seem as if they are molesting the customer at first :D..you know! touching him on the chest area and the other hand behind him :p

    According to The Green Book , if every one in the U.S. refused an ATM receipt, it would save a roll of paper large enough to circle the equator five times!

  5. Ahmad Osman Says:

    Lol. Hilarious. If we had such ATM’s, we would overcome overpopulation in a matter of weeks.

    mouahaha 7assayta ra7 tekhla3o kaff :))))

  7. Colin Says:

    Wonderful post as usual….BUT….I cry apostrophe abuse! (ATM’s) (!!?!!)

  8. Charbel Saad Says:

    Haha! Very hillarious :D
    At first I had a feeling that the ATM’s robotic hands would slap the customer, then display an angry message on the screen saying “Pick it up!” while pointing at the crumbled ticket on the floor. I guess I just drifted too far, LOL!

  9. Tarek Says:

    3ANJAD!!! I totally agree…

    Bass stupid SGBL doesn’t give you this option!!!

    (sorry any chance to b**** at that bank!)

  10. Fadi Says:

    Yep, as ZuZ said it is an environmental issue as well. Why print out the balance of your account if you can check it on the ATM’s screen? Or why print out the transaction you just did if it is to throw it out?!

    It’s like when you are at the supermarket; why print out the receipt? They should ask first and I am sure that 75% of the people will say “no”.

    Receipt are made out of trees too!

  11. Marillionlb Says:

    Do not request a ticket and use sms notification insted. That is what I do. I too thought that the arms were going to slap the offender :)

  12. Joe friend of the Sister Says:

    Funny you bring that up because I had always thought the same thing.. Actually, I emailed my bank a complaint in March, here’s a copy:

    Hello,

    I have been a customer of yours for a few years, and a unniversity student at AUB. I am just writing to you in order to point your attention to an issue which i think needs to be rectified. It has to do with your ATMs.

    Your ATM machines in all branches automatically print receipts for ALL transactions. If you pay attention you will notice that the boxes placed next to the ATM machines are always constantly full of the printed receipts, and several times I have come across branches where the ground around the ATM was covered with the receipts. The majority of people do NOT require nor want a receipt, and as a result it is costing you paper as well as labor hours cleaning up at times, which can be used more productively and avoided.

    Bank AUDI system, for instance, asks the customer if they would like a printed receipt. I strongly think you should adopt a similar approach.

    Thank you

    Their reply?:

    “Dear Mr. Khoury,
    I would like to thank you for your kind email and I want to assure you that
    your comment is more than appreciated.
    We will be considering this suggestion and working on it as soon as
    possible.

    Best Regards,”

    8 months later… Nada!

  13. Mireille Says:

    well i always wondered about receipts… i found the answer the day my friends forced me to “start budgetizing”

    it is hard to remember ur transactions , so you just collect the papers and at end of the month u do the math using excel

    but in this case , you need to keep the paper with u

    as for the printed papers, i think most of them are total account balances , not just receipt… as a database person , i would like to collect those and do a micro study about how much ppl have in banks :P

    great post.. nshala the ones who read and throw , y7isso 3a damon

  14. mc Says:

    hihihihi !!
    marillionlb,
    I thought that the arms were going to put the paper into the offender’s mouth :)

  15. Paola Says:

    LOL i thought the robot would slap the guy as well! :-)

  16. Greg Says:

    So! Your idea of punishment for someone who litters is to throw them inside a machine full of money :p AHA! Excellent :pi

  17. Liliane Says:

    I thought the hands were going to slap the guy! :P

  18. Liliane Says:

    oh apparently some others had the same thought! please make another version where they slap the guy, please please, i know you’re not violent :P bass try lol

  19. Joseph Says:

    Loved this post. Really funny.

    But I think people in general should be blamed… if they even cared, they would have held on to the Receipt and threw it in the nearby trashcan.

    I have just bought a mankouch√© from this place near my uni, and imagine my shock when I found about a dozen of wrappers and emptied juice bottles filling a seat next to the shop… The trash can was just a few steps away from the seat…

    So, in conclusion, people are just plain ignorant… me thinks anyway :P

  20. Mohammed E. Moussa Says:

    Hahahahaha! I love that kind of extreme punishment measure! :D

    I wonder if it can happen in reality. The ATM catches the paper-thrower and swallows him / her into the basement with some police fellows awaiting, who can punish the thrower with fines or with just a lovely night at the jail! :P

  21. darinerachkidy Says:

    well, after counting the votes, i think ya maya that u should re-do the punishment scene and slap that citizen because it is more fun and harmeful….hihihihihihi
    maybe when the ATM swallowed him he got to sit and enjoy tons of $$$$ bills inside…hehehe
