OK , the latesst systematic bout of ignorance i must rail about is the insistance of dumb gits in shops and other venues who insist on asking me for
my " pin number " when i amke a transaction .
it is a P.I.N. - it stands for PERSONAL IDETICICATION NUMBER
get that ??? NUMBER , i hope some of the guilty are reading this and now realise why i get soo tee`d off when they ask me for my "personal
identification number , number "
this is a pin :
maybe i should cary a huge one and stab the miscreats with it , till the get the hint
so far in the last 2 weeks only 1 , yup ONE person , out of the 27 transactions i have noted since march 25th has actually got it right and asked me
to enter my P.I.N.
a big hurray for the young lady @ the railway station
not only is she smart , she is cute too :x
to eVeryone else , especially tesco , be very afraid if you see me with a sharp object
, tesco are by far the worst offenders - 12 transactions
with 9 different cashiers and all asked for " pin number " GGGGRRRR
ok rant over
PS - for any one who is thinging what the heck is he on about , its the ` chip and PIN ` security system , now mandatory for all credit and debit
dransactions in the UK where equipment is availiable .
this site :chip and PIN
explains it all
and if you are fortunate enough to live in a " chip and PIN " free zone , i am green with envy
i HATE the stupid PIN
