27 June: Actually in credit? It’s a sign to spend a tenner on high alcohol wine.

In 1967 the very first ATM in the entire world was installed in Enfield, London. Let’s celebrate this momentous moment by having a drink of wine today.

Before that, of course, something so simple as wanting to get quietly drunk at home in a corner listening to music from your youth was often thwarted by empty pockets or a more realistic idea of the value of money and a healthy bank balance.

No more – 1967 removed these barriers and gave us ‘money on tap’ like any other commodity and so allowed us access whenever we needed it to that most priceless commodity of all: Wine. (Some fucking idiots apparently use it buy food but, personally, I think that’s an urban myth.)

Check your balance?

You still actually have a balance?! Well done!? Have a drink.

Got nothing: oh well – drown your sorrows anyway.

A quote (and a great one at that.): “I like best the wine drunk at the cost of others.” Diogenes the cynic.
