I don’t have any memories of life before the advent of Chip & Pin, so this thread isn’t for me and I’ll be muting it now, but enjoy!
Swiping a card in a till
Signing a slip of paper and having to make sure your card was actually signed
Chip & Pin Rescue Rangers
I’ve decided to unmute the thread to learn about these times. Of course I was alive at this point but I can’t remember it at all. Did I just carry cash at all times?
I remember paying for shopping with a cheque when I was in uni
Having a paying in book that looked like a cheque book, but for paying into your account
remember when we used to go to the cash point?
like, we’d be ‘oh just off to the cash point’, ‘excuse me, is there a cash point nearby?’, ‘oh i’m out of money, better go to the cash point’
I had to do this last month as the chippy only accepted cash (!?!??! - what kind of sordid operation are you running here?!)
‘I need to go to the atm machine’ someone would say.
‘what? You need to go to the automated teller machine machine?’ I, a very intelligent young man, would respond
I remember topping my phone up via a cash point
Remember when a 10 pence piece was the size of the ones in the chocolate money?
What’s your pin number (or ‘PIN’)
those old carbon copy credit card machines they had in restaurants
Yeah that does look a bit like me
And thicker 50p pieces
Did they used to have more points?
