11:40am on Saturday, 2nd October, 2010:
I used the NatWest ATM outside ASDA today, and it asked me for my "PIN Number".
The ATM itself said that, on its screen. Either: the people who specified the text didn't know what PIN is an acronym for; or they knew full well but decided that so many of their customers were ignorant that they would pander to their ignorance rather than attempt to educate them.
What next, a sign saying "ATM machine"?
