Lusaka 4: wacky bank machines.

The craziest thing happened when I went to use an ATM at the strip mall on Tuesday evening.

I couldn't resist pressing the "ADJUST CASH" button to see what would happen. Here's what it offered to do:



I decided that going further might get me into trouble, and hit the CANCEL button.



This was entirely repeatable. I did it again to take these pictures. And then I tried an ATM at a different bank and it did exactly the same thing. I found a few other confused people wandering from ATM to ATM, wondering why they weren't working properly.

I wonder how long it took the banks to figure out that something was wrong.
