ATM Thats Cash Point-less

Kathryn Quinn

This ATM in western China is so hard to get to that fed-up customers in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, say it's completely cash point-less.

Access to the hole-in-the-wall is blocked by a huge ledge which users have to crouch on just to get to the keyboard.

"It is very frustrating and every time you use it you end up looking a complete idiot. It's as if they don't want us to get to our money," said one.

Branch manager Xu Miao explained: "We are a very small branch and we have no room for an ATM inside."

"This is a rented office and our landlord won't let us make any alterations to the exterior of the building so I am afraid we have nowhere else to put it.

"We're on the lookout for a more suitable building but until then we'd ask our customers to accept our apologies and try to put up with it," he added.
