What happens if your fingers are too big to work the ATM? It probably won’t happen unless, like the protagonist here, you are a great big giant blue... thing.  This is an amusing short short (and we all like short shorts!) by Rikke Asbjoern.

Incidentally the first automated teller machine (if you have ever wondered what the A, T and M stand for in ATM) was first put in to use in 1959 in the Kingsdale Shopping Center in Upper Arlington, Ohio even though the 1972 2984 CIT (Cash Issuing Terminal) was the first true Cashpoint, similar in function to today's machines. Although the machines would not become widespread until the late 1970s this is one machines that we would now struggle to be without!
