Only One Machine!

You know what really grinds my gears?

When people say ATM Machine.  Automated Teller Machine…Machine.   Same for SCUBA gear, and The La Trattoria, but the ATM one has always annoyed me.

I heard this verbal misstep earlier today, and then had a “Oh, crap, did I just say that aloud” moment when I muttered “one too many machines” and had the man taking out cash in front of me glare in my general direction.

And I wonder why I get hit by strangers on the street.
