In preparation for next week’s trip to Chiang Mai and Chiang Dao, I went to a money-changer in Parkway Parade. I asked for 5000 baht and was quoted about S$215. Since I didn’t have that much cash on me, I handed my bank card over to pay and waited to key in my PIN.
I have to admit I don’t always bother to check the amount on the screen before keying in my PIN. No reason, just carelessness. For some reason though, tonight I did.
The screen said “$51,386.73”.
I’m still wondering what might have happened if I hadn’t checked.
