Well thank you, on behalf of everyone who has wanted to do that on at least one occasion.

Exactly who hasn't smashed up and ATM or two and then gone on to break a public phone box or some other idiotic act of vandalism. Yeah right on timmy.👌

Bloody hell guys. Need a sense of humour implant? I mean those occasions when the machine inexplicably eats your card, even though you have money in your account. We don't actually smash the ATM for it, but for a moment we kinda want to.

I certainly smacked phone box hand pieces a few times in my youth, never broke one, just frustrated because the fucking thing stole my money. I must have bashed the vending machines in the Tube stations even more, but they were built strong. As for ATMs, they always had cameras and likely your details if you had just used them so that would be pretty dumb.
Silence, exile, and cunning.
