Reno: I'm a Loser

It has already been established that  I am a loser but I feel like I've truly lowered the bar this time.

No kidding. Let me tell you what I did last night in Reno. (Is there an emoticon for blushing and rolling eyes at the same time?)

We were staying at Harrah's.

Img_0855 We were pretty tired, but it seemed crazy to stay at a casino and not gamble at all.

I needed to get some money so I went to the ATM. I figured I would give myself a $40 budget. We were only planning on being down in the casino for about an hour so it seemed reasonable. My reasoning was that I would get $60 out of the bank machine so I would have some cash the next day.

I was getting the money out of the machine and at the same time I was having a conversation with Devra and Meagan about where we wanted to go lose our money.

I looked down and there were several bills coming out of the machines. Several one hundred dollar bills.

I knew exactly what must have happened but I yelled "I WON!" anyway.

Yes, I hit an extra zero. Instead of getting $60 out of the ATM I got $600 out. Oops. I hope I didn't bounce anything.

I only ended up using about $20 to gamble. So I was left with a balance of $580. In cash. On a road trip. That seemed excessive.Img_0858_2

Don't try to rob me either. I have already re-deposited it, but damn I felt stupid.

Please tell me I am not the only person that has ever done this.

Sarah also does idiotic things and reports on them at Sarah and the Goon Squad.

Those ATM machines at the casinos are touchy with that 0 key. I think they WANT you to take out more money and have no self control to keep it out of the slot machines!
