A colleague and i decided that as it was soooo dam hot today that we would stop off for a nice chilled pint at lunchtime.
With no cash to hand i decided to pay for the (admittedly) cheap round using the power of Chip and Pin....
Strangly my card was declined, somewhat embarrased i tried my card again to have it declined once more.
My friend offered to pay for the drinks and i removed my declined card from the Chip and Pin device.... At which point my Chip actually dropped out of my debit card and landed in my pint. Seems like a new way for Natwest to reign in my spending.
Made me giggle.
