The Moron Strikes Again

I seem to have some sort of mental block against remembering numbers. Especially PINs. I had to call my bank this morning to have them send me a new one for the umpteenth time.

Write it down, you say. Yes, well, then I have to be able to remember where I wrote it. No such luck.

Change it to something that has meaning and therefore will be harder to forget, you suggest. Fine, good idea. But in order to do that I need my current PIN. Again, no such luck.

So this one will probably last me only a couple months too.

It would be less of an issue if banks were actually open for business when people could actually use them. But no, if you work, you're basically SOL and have to rely on those stinkin' machines that require secret codes. Bah.

I have always wondered about the bank hours thing too. Drives me bonkers. Good luck with the PIN, my friend.

Silly girl. You could pick one that means something after you get your new one in the mail, but before you forget it again.

I've had the same PIN number for more than ten years and I still often type it in wrong (I always switch the first and last number) and have to type it in again.
