British supermarket installed ATM 15 inches from ground

What is this, an ATM for ants?

"Customers have to bend or kneel to use the machine, installed outside a Sainsbury's Local store in Basford. A Sainsbury's spokesman said the cash machine was installed so low down because it was located on a hill. The supermarket added that it had not had any complaints." [BBC]

  1. "The supermarket added that it had not had any complaints." Any complaints may, of course, be lodged in the complaint box which is located 12 feet above street level.

  2. 'Tis an ATM for crawling drunks.

  3. I love the non-explanation!
    It's on a hill, you see. Oh yes, of course.

    I learned years ago that people just want to hear something. I was in line for a movie and the guy in front of me walked in with a full box of pizza. When the ticket kid objected the guy just said "Oh no - this is for somebody else" and that was that.

    My life has gone swimmingly ever since.
