That's not the weird thing though. After it was all over and the police and ambulance had been, I went back to the ATM, but I couldn't find my ATM card in my purse. I tried to remember whether I'd had it out when the accident happened, if I'd reached the ATM yet, whether I'd dropped it or put in my bag in the rush. I couldn't remember! I went in to the bank to ask if anyone had picked it up. I told the cashier what had happened and she asked if I'd been at the ATM and I said I couldn't remember. Then I thought about it some more and realised I HAD been at the ATM, in fact I remember pressing the button to withdraw $300! It must have been at that point that I heard the crash and then I just ran off and left my card (and possibly money) in the ATM Isn't that weird! I can't believe I did that. I know that people forget things when something stressful/shocking happens but I've never had it happen to me. It felt totally weird to not remember what I'd done. And then to realise I'd run off without my money and it not to even occur to me what I was doing. Freaked me out a bit.
(ETA: my card was in the ATM, the cashier got it out for me. They money hadn't come out because I didn't have enough in my account, luck huh!)
Anyhoo, hope you had a good Christmas and new year and all the best for 2009!
