Steph:  I’m totally broke.

Jen:  Oh, I wish I had some cash to give ya. Maybe we could find an ATM somewhere around here.

Steph:  Maybe. Yeah. Oh look! There’s one right there.

Jen:  Oh, we can’t stop there. It’s a two-dollar charge for fees.

Steph:  No way!

Jen:  Hey. I know. A couple more blocks up, it’s free.

Steph:  Really? What kind of bank is it?

Jen:  It’s a Wells Fargo_.

Steph:  Oh yeah? OK. Well, cool. I think. But that’s not my bank. You think they’ll charge me a fee?

Jen:  Well, your bank might. But, *_Wells Fargo won’t. It’s the best way I know to get some fast cash.

Steph:  Oh really. Well, yeah. I need some money right now. So, all right. Let’s go.

Jen:  Let’s go there.

You really have to be careful when you are getting money from an ATM because they all charge different fees. I have seen fees from one to four dollars, depending on the owner of the machine. I hate bank fees! I avoid them like the plague. If you need money and you’re in America, check the fees first. Have a great weekend!
