Sounds like your friend has more problems than worrying about being robbed at the ATM. Actually, he may be the robber at the ATM.
His friend might actually be right. Before an atm asks for your pin # you have to swipe your card first. At that point it's only looking for one pin # and not all of the ones in its database. I dont know how it's work if it was 1221 or something though or why his "friend" got so upset.
EMV technician here, confirming it DOESN'T work. But not for the reason stated (We could just not issue cards with palindrome PINs, since they are generated at the bank.) The reason is that neither the card nor the ATM know your PIN. (what they know is called a "hash" of the PIN and is basically a piece of knowledge that is easy to get from a PIN but hard to get a PIN from. A comparable example would be knowing the second and fifth letter of your password. It's easy to see if "Zebra" has the letters E and A there, but it's hard to think of a word with H and T there off the top of your head.) [BTW the answer is (replacing the letters with their number in the alphabet, in case you want to try guessing) 19-8-9-18-20 ]
Never bother correcting idiots on facebook. They never learn. :/
45, I totally agree I think it made sense as well. But what 31 is trying to say is that she said they instead of he. It made it sound like she is talking about more than one friend, when the OP was only talking about one friend. I just think 31 was being a grammar nazi about it.
No, it just made it sound like she didn't know the gender of OP's friend. 'They' is perfectly acceptable to use in reference to one person if you're not sure which gendered pronoun to use. Which means if 31 was trying to be a grammar Nazi about it, /they/ are an incredibly bad one. You need to actually understand proper grammar before you can go around trying to correct other people...
#67, actually, using they IS WRONG. People use "they" to be politically correct, but it doesn't change the fact that it's a grammatical error. SAT books, grammar books will tell you that using "they" because you don't know the gender is wrong. You assume either male or female. In this case, it was a male from the fml. Before trying to contradict me, go look it up in an actual grammar book.
As an English major, I'm gonna tell you that NO ONE CARES about your precious SAT books or what they say about using "they" properly. Also, lots of people like using "they" as their gender pronouns, and I'd much rather respect their wishes than go by some ridiculous grammar book.
Charge him with assault and battery, and have someone else (preferably a girl) try to get him to go to anger therapy.
