I forgot about my credit card, and now the ATM has swallowed it.
“I’m sorry sir,” the phone said. “We cannot retrieve your card, because the machine automatically destroys it.”
We officially have no money. We handed over our very last Peso and dollars to the marina office to clear our bill, and now we have nothing.
There is one glimmer of hope however. According to one of the marina staff, there have been times when guests at the Ocean World Casino have had their credit cards swallowed. In these cases, a bank official has come out to the casino and retrieved the card from the casino ATM for them. The helpful marina staff have offered to give me a ride into town tomorrow morning to speak to the bank to see if they can help out. Fingers crossed!
