    Default ATM took my card

    I wanted to get / take money out of an ATM but the machine took my card.
    I have 2 questions.
    1) Are both of the verbs (get and take) ok?
    2) Can we use another verb instead of took? (like ate)

    Default Re: ATM took my card

    1. Yes, but I would probably say that I wanted to get money from or at an ATM.
    2. Yes, I would say it ate my card.

    Most people I know say 'it swallowed my card'.
