Is it just me who battles to access financial life now that everything relies on number sequences? Pin this, pin that ... don't they realise that to a bearmaker, pins are very different things?! Colourful phrases enter my consciousness with ease, but numbers? No. Numbers fly in briefly, then fly straight back out again. This causes me no end of trouble and I've lost count of how many calls I've had to make to reset wretched pin numbers since their introduction to banking world.
