Saved by the SMS

I was expecting my salary to be transfered to my bank account today. It didn’t happen. I checked my bank account a couple of times and relaxed – “Probably tomorrow” – I thought. In the evening realized that I need about 10 CYP to by some souvlaki. I didn’t have any. I thought – “No problem. There is this friend of mine on the way to kebab house, so I’ll just pass by and borrow some money from him.”. When I came to the guy, it turned out that he didn’t have any mony on him as well.

So, I was standing halfway to the kebab place without a cent in my pocket. I was trying to figure out where to get some money. I didn’t want to go too far off the way. And I didn’t want to open the credit line in the kebab place. There were practically no options left.

And at exactly last moment before I got disappointed with the situation I recieve an SMS. It was an automatic notification from my bank that even forgot I setup. It notified me that the balance on my account is above the specified value, which could only mean one thing – my salary got transfered. I am pretty sure no banks work around here at 7 o’clock in the evening, so I couldn’t believe my eyes. I went to the closest ATM and presto! The money were indeed there.

There is something magical about all of it…
