Got my new bank card through the post today


#1

That’s me joined the contactless world. Pretty exciting.


#2

welcome aboard, jordo!


#3

Do you think they’ll accept it at Greggs? Might head there just now.


#4

How many yumyums you getting?


#5

Ooh. What’s you card number?


#6

I can spend up to £30 contactless apparently, so that many.


#7

Same as the old (non-contactless) (contactful?) one.


#8

Anyone heard that album Channel Orange from Frank Ocean yet? He’s part of OFWGKTA but actually good. Give it a listen if you haven’t heard!


#9

Good for you. When I see people typing in their PIN I want to smash their kneecaps. You think you’re so great with your fucking PINs and your small purchases.


#10

Put my card on my phone now I pay by just holding the phone over the thing.
It’s like living in a comic book future.

Earned a £10 from Google for it too…plus one for MrS by way of recommending me …


#11

I feel like there’s a subtext to your post, but I genuinely haven’t heard that album, so might listen to it. Thanks!


#12

can’t see this taking off


#13

Congrats!! Now you can also have that tedious conversation of
“Do you take contactless?”
“Yep.”
“Ooh it’s dangerous though isn’t it, feels like you aren’t spending any money!”
“Haha yep.”


#14

This sounds exciting, but I’ll have to crawl before I can walk.


#15

What’s the limit for needing to put your personal PIN number in the machine these days?

When I left the UK: 10 quid. What a joke.
Australia: $100
Netherlands €30 I think, haven’t been paying attention.


#16

An Australian woman in a shop asked me if I had contactless when I was buying something once, and I said no. She said “you don’t want it anyway”, and I didn’t really know how to respond to that, so the rest of the transaction was completed in silence.


#17

Big fan of Kendrick Lamar’s new album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City. Hadn’t heard of the guy before, but it’s a surprisingly accomplished effort.


#18

I’ve heard that one!


#19

£30.00pGBP these days.

About $500 in Australian that isn’t it?


#20

Thank you for the recommendation! I’ll keep an ear out :ear:
