I was in Masset a few weeks ago for an workshop at an elementary school. Having the weekend free to explore, I spent most of my Sunday walking down beaches, skirting the waves, and picking up extraordinary looking pebbles. For hours I watched the waves recede and return to me - what bliss.
It was difficult to be torn away from such a scenery, but by ten o'clock in the evening, my tummy was rumbling as loud as the waves were, so my colleague and I returned to Masset to look for food. All supermarkets were closed and we only had two Chinese restaurants that were open to us so we decided on the Golden Pam where I ordered a bowl of chicken soup noodles.
Although I did enjoy my meal, what I really look forward to at restaurants like these is the fortune cookie at the end of the meal. It's a random piece of literature (sometimes wisdom) and the shell that contains it is edible. Delightful.
I crack mine open with greedy anticipation, and pop the cookie in my mouth - it was crisp and delicious! However, I found the fortune part a little stale.

I know I should be over this, it's been seven months since this incident! Many days I've been fuming, this final blog entry on the topic will be the catharsis I've been needing:
To Whom It May Concern:
At approximately 1:30pm today, I used an ATM machine at the ***** Community Branch. During the transaction, I requested sixty dollars before the ATM machine froze. No cash or card came out. The woman behind the desk told me to wait in line to speak with a teller who, “if they weren’t too busy”, might retrieve my card for me. My card was found inside the machine, but while I was in the line up, someone had taken the cash. I now have $60 missing from my account because of a faulty ATM machine, and because I was told to leave the it unguarded in order to to get help.
This is a big disappointment; I feel that the security of my money was not a priority for your bank. I would like reassurance that your bank will not allow for me to be victimized and disempowered like this again. I want confirmation that I will have my money returned to me. Please look into this matter.
