"Why is American beer served cold? So you can tell it from urine" –

Off topic question of the day:

If your ATM card falls into a toilet bowl full of urine should you be concerned?

(Will let you know later today when I attempt to use my ATM card)

9 Thoughts.

  1. I’m glad to know I’m not the only person this has happened to! (Mine worked just fine, despite the dunking and subsequent scrubbing in hot soapy water.)

  2. If the finanical crisis continues, we may soon have no use for ATM cards.
    As for the urine, probably depends on who produced it.

  3. LMAO
    I just love your OT’s!!!!!!!!
    I know urine will help a jellyfish sting, but what it does to ATM cards, I have no idea….

  4. seems like it depends on who’s toilet bowl it fell in. HOWEVER…it must be retrieved by you, because if you don’t someone else will.
    Along the lines of the “tree in the forest” thing…
    If an ATM card falls in the toilet and you wash it off and don’t tell anyone, then does it really matter? 🙂

  5. As a banker, it will work fine!
    I will say though, that with the economy in the shitters as it is…you may as well leave it in the urine! It’s gonna be there anyways!

  6. Ha! Long ago a friend of mine at work dropped her pager into the toilet by accident. They had to remove the toilet from the wall to retrieve the thing because it had really gotten stuck. Next day it appeared wrapped in paper towels on her desk. Our boss made her keep using it, and it worked for awhile but ultimately died. Now, it had some electronics, but I’m guessing your card will be fine, unless pee is a demagnetizer.

  7. Hmmm. I am not sure I would consider urine sterile…
    I guess I would try to use a car key or something to hold the card against the side of the bowl. I would then flush and try to extract the card with a toilet paper wrapped hand..
    Oh wait. The question was “should you be concerned.” Yes.
