Perils of small town living
They have "bank holidays" over here. I'm none too sure what they are, other than the obvious. I need to investigate. That said, when a bank holiday falls on the Monday after a golf tournament and a motorcycle group visiting the area, the ATMs apparently run out of money. Oh wait, I said ATMs? It's ATM. There's not even a hole in the wall that you find in some towns. This is a wee tidbit we had no idea to prepare for. Yesterday, Sunday, I went to make a withdrawal and the ATM said No Service Available for Withdrawals. What? No money? Surely someone will come and restock the thing for Monday. Nope. It's a bank holiday and that's just what it means. No drama, really, just another adventure on the learning curve for us.
