So do you take the extra money like it never happened or maybe call the bank tomorrow? Or do you do what Michael John Oleksik (ph) allegedly did? The Florida man got so mad at the ATM for messing up that he punched it causing $5,000 in damages. He's facing criminal mischief charges. He said he was in a hurry and just didn't know what to do.
