A first

Today, I managed to actually enter my pin number whilst paying for something. Up until now, I’ve managed to say that I don’t know it, or go to Sainsbury’s who have yet to implement it in their stores. But today, I took the plunge, bought the goods and typed the number, and you know what? I kinda liked it. At first I was opposed to the idea, and it makes me feel that sales staff will eventually be surplus to requirements, but I do like this ‘not signing’ business. At least with Chip & Pin I’m unlikely to get distracted in the middle and either forget how to write or how to spell the rest of my name (it’s happened!).
