Inebriated Chinese Dude Gets Stuck in ATM Booth

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A drunk Chinese man got wedged underneath an opening in a glass wall of an ATM.


Cheng Kao became stuck when he tried to squeeze underneath the window instead of using the door.

Passers-by called rescue officials when they saw the man passed out under the window.

Police said Cheng told them he put his PIN number in wrong three times and the ATM swallowed his card. He then couldn`t get the door to open and thought the best way to freedom was to go underneath the glass window."


The police had to smash the glass panel to free the intoxicated fool. He will be charged for the cost of repairing the booth, which probably means a years` salary.

Moral of this story: Never attempt to withdraw money from an ATM when you are as drunk as a skunk. You may not be able to remember your PIN, and the machine will swallow your card.

A drunkard at an ATM is an easy mark for a predator " easier than stealing candy from a baby.

China is a totalitarian nightmare, but Chinese would be well-advised not to get publicly drunk to ease the pain.
