“To protect your personal interests, repeated incorrect submissions of your Password or Security Code will disable your access to Internet Banking.”

Clearly, my ‘personal interests’ include:

  • Calling to reset my password
  • Yelling at customer service reps, then feeling guilty because it’s not their fault
  • Allowing other people to easily lock me out of my account if they know my user ID, or if they’re annoyed enough at having been locked out that they write a script to guess all possible user IDs and then proceed to lock them out to prove a point not that I’m doing that right now really
  • Being generally annoyed as fuck
