Luna Park Not Smiling After Workers Rort ATM Cash

Last week, Sydney's Luna Park loved technology: The harbourside attraction unveiled its 'My Experience' site that lets smartphone users link wristbands and share ride experiences in real time. This week? Not so much. They've just fired up to 20 staff for taking advantage of an on-site ATM that was spitting out $50 notes in place of $20s.

Firstly, if I was a teenager working on the Big Top Pavilion, I'd probably have been tempted myself. Secondly, why do I always find out about this stuff after the fact?

ATM company iCash Australia (who maintain the machines with cash supplied by the park) says that 50 buck notes had accidentally been placed where $20 notes should have gone. End result: a bunch of staff marched out one by one after being photographed using the machine in question.

Theft is theft I guess, but I actually feel kind of bad for them, especially the ones that only withdrew a couple of hundred bucks. [Sydney Morning Herald]
