2005-06-14 : Banks doth vex me so.
Now why is it that a bank over here will post you a new ATM card via registered post (i.e. requires a signature, and if you are not home at the time they come around then it also means dragging your arse off down to the post office with some ID to collect this letter…), and yet they will just send a new cheque book via bog standard post and have it pushed through your front door ?
Both methods provide access to withdraw your money with only a signature.
Seems a bit bloody stupid if you ask me. Or maybe I just cannot be bothered to walk down to the post office…
