but I’m not wearing brown socks…

I’VE NEVER BEEN KEEN on sorting out money matters over the phone. I used to get very flustered indeed.

Once I was sorting out a mobile phone account on a very bad line. A cheerful young man was taking my details and suddenly asked for my ‘brown sock code’.

In my nervousness, I was perplexed. Brown sock code? What on earth is a brown sock code? I was about to open my mouth to question him about it when, thankfully, my eyes fell on my cheque book.

Ah. My bank sort code.

One thought on “but I’m not wearing brown socks…
