ATM voyeur

Whenever I’m at an ATM and I notice a receipt has been left behind, I tend to glance at the balance. I don’t know why I do this. I probably do it because I find it a little comforting to know that whatever I have in checking seems to be about average.
This morning I looked at a receipt that showed over $20,000 in checking. Checking! We keep only what we need for bills and miscellaneous expenses in checking and the rest gets dumped in savings so our checking balance is very minimum. I’d go a little nuts with 20 G’s. Okay, probably more than just a little nuts. If I planned it right, I could spend a year traveling around the world in comfort and style. It’s nice to daydream.
How about you? What would you do with an extra $20,000?

    Sad but true:
    I would pay of a PORTION of my student loan. Then start saving to travel the world.

    I think that’s an invasion of privacy.

    Is it really? Even though the receipt was left on the ATM? I’m not rummaging through the trash or someone’s wallet. And there is no personal or account information on an atm receipt other than the figures.

    I’d help pay off that med school loan… and with that 20K, shoot.. I’ll only have 110K more to go!

    Wow. I hope my Brother reads this, as he is waiting for his paperwork to go through for his student loan!

    I would pay off my grad school loans then use the balance to take a vacation to Europe for a couple of weeks. I think about this all the time, actually.

    I would get my passport and head off to Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Israel. I’d stay until the $20,000 was thin.

    I’d go to the dermatologist!!! I’d get shot up some pig botulism.

  12. Josie says:

    Pig botulism costs 20 grand???? I’d buy a plane ticket and fly over to help you move to New Orleans and watch you get shot up with some pig botulism. Whatever that is. LOL.

  13. Brian Que says:

    Pig botulism? Is that kosher?

  14. Annalynn says:

    Pig botulism is what makes up Botox.
