Russia: Lost ATM Card

A horror story, almost, from Darkness At Noon: you're in Russia, and you use one of those ATM machines that gives you the money first and then returns your card, and you take the money but forget about the card – and then the horror begins: “Do you mean to tell me that my ATM card is wandering around Moscow right now in the pocket of some technician and that MAYBE it will show up in a couple of days? That's unacceptable. Listen, I need to know right now, WHERE'S MY CARD?”
