damn feel so dumb i left the atm without grabbing my money. There was no one behind me. Do you think the money stayed there or it got out back it

As a giy who has worked, and currently works, for a bank, I can tell you not to worry.
ATMs are designed with a failsafe in mind specifically for this situation. If you don't take the money within 15 seconds (timing varies from machine to machine, but generally under 30 seconds), it will just get sucked back in.
Depending on the bank, it will either credit your account automatically, or the cash will go into a separate "bucket" within the machine, along with a report, so the bank employees can manually credit your account, the next time they balance the ATM.
Since nobody was behind you, I think you're alright.0
