Insectum Ex Machina

Until recently I had a bank account with Washington Mutual. After Chase bought Washington Mutual my account was transferred. This morning was the first day I went to a Chase ATM to try to withdraw money. I was surprised to see that a moth was trapped inside one of the machines at 55 Water Street.

You might be a winner, but this moth is a loser.

I hope that the moth's imprisonment is due, somehow, to its own carelessness. But what is much more likely is that someone was recently working on the ATM, had the machine open and left the moth inside it accidentally.

But the first thing you notice when you approach the ATM is that there is a moth inside it. The repairman probably couldn't be bothered with opening the machine back up to remove the insect. Ah, New York...
