Cash Machine in Womenswear

Why do I suddenly find myself imagining one of those freestanding ATMs — you know, the ones that you find in pubs and similar establishments, the ones that charge like a wounded rhino — one of them there freestanding ATMs, tastefully attired in a skirt and a cardy?

Could such a phenomenon be every man's dream: a woman who dispenses rather than demands cash? Hmm. Perhaps not.
