People That Drive In The Wrong Way At The Bank ATM

I don't know about anybody else out there but what drives me crazy is when someone drives into the bank ATM the wrong way so the passenger can use the ATM. Then when I drive in we are facing hood to hood. This happened to me the other day at the bank and when she was done she tried to drive forward and almost hit my car. Then she honked me and went around me the wrong way against traffic all the way out through the entrance. What an idiot! Have you ever had that happen to you? Or when people get out of their car and stand at the ATM. What in the world is that all about? Don't these people know how to pull up so they can just lean out the window? It just irritates me. How about you guys out there? Does this bother you too? Or are you the ones that do this? LOL!

I've never encountered "those people" at the atm before, but have ran into thier kind at the gas pumps. I cant stand when these idiots pull up in front of you facing hood to hood because the tank is on that side of the car. How in the world do these people expect you to back out into a crowded parking lot. Why dont they just pull up to a pump that has someone facing the same way they need to be? Sheesh!

I couldn't agree more! That is why you wait in the line for the pump that is on the side your gas tank is on. Or you drive up and parallel park next to it, but "facing the right direction" - not into oncoming traffic. Too funny!

I have not had that happen to me. But how ever when I take my one friend to the bank he gets out and walks up. As I will not do his banking for him. I don't want to know his info. That could be why the passager walks up. As that is why we do that. He don't drive and bank doesn't have a walk up one in the bank. Which is stupid. But it takes just as long if they walk or drive. Drive the wrong way no. They could get a ticket. Have a nice day.

As far as I know, we don't have drive-in ATMs in Australia yet. But another really annoying thing is when you go to the petrol station and the person in front parks at the last bowser in the row instead of driving up to the first one, even though it's free. Then you have to either wait for them to finish, or try to drive around them and reverse back up. How's that for bad manners?

Yep! I had to do that the other day. There are four in a row and the first and second ones were being used. I was behind another driver and he pulled up to the last one!!! I had to go around him and literally parallel park to get to the pump! They are truly inconsiderate you-know-whats!

I don't drive the wrong way, I do get out of my car, my window on the drivers side won't role down, I hate these new style cares, with automatic windows, I need one with the handle where I can role my window down.

Well, at least you have the excuse that your window doesn't roll down. At least you have a reason. I'm talking about those people that could just easily reach out but make a big old production out of a simple task. Thanks for your comment and have a great day!!

Oh, man! People can be so stupid sometimes! I've never encountered that particular situation before, but the directions are usually clearly marked on which way to drive through. Those people were just plain inconsiderate. I would've done just as you did... not back up so they could get through... make them back up. As to standing at an ATM, that's what they make the non-drive-through ATM's for!!! They probably already have a stack of driving tickets somewhere. I sometimes wonder how they got their license in the first place! My son is always getting so angry at stupid drivers like that. I try to remind him that they have to live with themselves and it must be a pretty miserable existance. You know what boggles my noggin? The fact that they have braile on the drive-through ATM's!!! Scarey!

LOL! I have ALWAYS thought that about the braile. But if they didn't I think it would be discrimination. Maybe it is there for the passengers. I sure hope so!

That drives me crazy too! I hate when idiots do this. I never move out of their way either if I pull up in back of them. They will have to figure it out to go around me.

I've never experienced this, or seen it. But I'm sure many people do it. And if I ever saw someone doing it, I would be beyond annoyed and irrated. If I am in the passenger seat, and I need to use the atm, I normally make the person park a little ways back, so I can walk up to the machine, OR I just find one where I can get out, and go inside somewhere. Ugh, people are just so lazy..
