raise chuckle or three

I am intrigued with the transatlantic use of 'pants' as a derogatory term -what can they mean?

What's most worrying here is that a whole password was visible to a staff member.

I would have thought all passwords were encrypted and only revealed a few letters at a time for oral verification.

I'm just glad the Lloyd's employee who changed it in the first place had a good sense of humour :oP

that an employee was able to change a password seemingly on a whim, without even notifying the customer. I shouldnt have to go into the details of the opportunity for fraud.
