Weird that a machine at Visa knows my habits so well. I don't know whether to fear for my privacy, or be grateful that I don't have to swap credit cards so often...!

Well, I had to think about that one, too - and decided that I didn't mind it knowing my habits, and questioning charges that didn't fit. But I *did* mind the part where, when I called (after getting a phone call asking me to talk to someone) the automated system asked me to verify the charges - if I said they were mine, it hung up (*WITHOUT* reactivating my card!) I had to tell the automated system that the charges weren't accurate in order to reach the live human I needed to reactivate the card... I *hate* faulty programming...

(Note: this was during my (f)oolish days, when I was using the card for gas!)
