This morning I nipped up to the local shops to get some money from the ATM. DC needed the £170 I was looking after for him as he is getting new tyres and exhaust fitted on his car today as it failed its MOT on wednesday.
The ATM decided (once I had gone through the process of asking for the money) that my PIN was incorrect. I entered it again, again it told me my PIN was incorrect after a 3rd try it was still incorrect. I have used this same number for years and never had a problem with it. So I drove into town to the bank it wasn't too busy as it was just after 9am. I withdrew the money I needed for DC and a small amount for me over the weekend. They have ordered me a new PIN which could take upto a week to arrive!!!
So now I have to rely on internet banking or withraw cash from the bank counter until I get my new PIN. I then met DC at the garage where he is having the work done to hand over the money he needed. It then occurred to me that I should have given him a cheque then I wouldn't have used the ATM and my PIN would still be ok and I would have access to my cash!
Do as I say, not as I do.
