The awkwardness of cutting a queue at the ATM

People often pay us by cheque/DD at Pothi.com. So, I often have to go and drop those cheques. It is funny, when not awkward, how people who are in line to draw cash at the ATMs shoot dirty glances at me thinking I am someone trying to cut the queue. I sheepishly go ahead and try to reach the cheque deposit area quickly, hoping that those dirty glances have relaxed. So, I was actually relieved when someone tried to stop me yesterday.
“Excuse me,” came a stern voice.
So, I flashed the cheque at him and smiled. His face broke into an embarrassed grin, but I felt good that I have explained myself.
Trivial, but I do dread the dirty looks while cutting the cash withdrawal line to deposit a cheque. Wish they placed the cheque deposit boxes in a way that it was obvious when someone is going for them and not for cash withdrawal.
