Rules to follow when you’re waiting in queue at an ATM machine

Thanks to demonetisation, we all know the pain of standing in a queue at the ATMs. But yes, sometimes we don’t have a choice as we all need cash at some point or the other.
So, when the ATM visit is inevitable, it is better to go with the flow in a dignified manner. Here are some things that you can do to make yourself and as well as the others in the queue comfortable.

Not always about you
When you go to an ATM always remember that everybody needs cash. Do not withdraw huge amounts of cash. There are some people who are only dependent on cash, as not everyone is used to online transactions. Don’t take more than two chances until and unless it is absolutely essential. And, just as your turn comes, keep everything ready; do not make people wait as everyone’s time is equally valuable.

A little tenderness
Decency is the most important thing when you are in public. Always be alert as there will be many people around to use the ATM machine. If you observe that the cash is over, be kind and tell the others that the ATM is out of cash. This will help others waiting in the queue to at least look for machine where cash is available. Nobody likes to wait for a long while only to realise that there’s no cash left. If you think there is some problem with the machine, let others know so that they do not waste their time. Don’t jump the line, ever, whatever your reason be — as it is not acceptable.

Personal space
It is important to feel comfortable and safe at the ATM. There are some people who don’t understand the concept of personal space. So, don’t hesitate to tell them to step back if they are coming too close to you. It’s important to maintain some privacy. Also, don’t look inside when someone else is using an ATM machine. If someone requests you to allow them first due to some urgency, and if you are not in a hurry, let them go first; or you could politely turn down their request.
