Forgot my pin number
August 9, 2008 1:34pm CST
Went shopping last week, while out i passed the underwear shop and decided that I would at long last go in and buy my new bras (have been putting it off for weeks). As it was an implus buy I didn't have enough cash to pay for the bras so decided to use switch. Duly put my card in the machine, girl asked me to key in my number and my mind went blank. I couldn't remeber it for the life of me. Then i remembered the first two numbers, the machine decided that i could sign for it, by this time i tjhought i had all four numbers but wasn't really sure about the last number but the girl said its ok don't worry about it. Anyway whwen i got home and told hubby I hadn't got the fourth number right!! I stood in the shop wishing the floor would open up, the only good thing was I was the only one in the shop and i wasn't in a long quene in a big supermarket

I can't recall that ever happening to me, but I will forget something in a heart beat. I use a debit card often so I can remember the number right off. I also have a checking account with the same account so if I forget the number I can write a check. I remember once when I didn't have a debit card, I went to the grocery store got to the checkout and the cashier had scanned all my groceries and I looked in my purse and I didn't have my checkbook. Thank goodness I didn't live to far from the store. They let me push the cart to the side and I went home and got my checkbook.

I know myself that once I go out, I am bound to shop for something, no matter how big of small. I used to hate when I saw something I liked and hadn't taken enough money with me to buy it, nor had I taken a note of my pin for my credit card. Now when I go out, I write my pin number on the palm of my hand so I can look at the number when asked to key it into the machine. Although, that might not be a good idea either because it encourages me to spend more.
