The Will of the Masses


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"?
