They chucked it through The Complicator

July 28, 2010

OK so we used to have to carry cash, then arrived eftpos. Brilliant, instant access, anytime day or night, to your money. (That of course is a good or bad thing depending on your spending habits)

Today I got two new ‘chip’ cards, better security apparently, but it takes a hellova lot longer. Swipe, insert, press account, wait, wait, wait, press pin, wait wait wait, remove card, accepted.

Shop girls are frustrated, salesmen sigh at the sight of these ‘better’ chip cards.

What once was good has been chucked through the complicator and destroyed.

P.S. I never had any problems with security
