Kurwamac: try using a mnemonic for your PIN number. It’s the only thing that’s worked for me. For years, I would watch in anguish as my credit card disappeared into the bowels of the unarmed bandit, after my third unsuccessful try. Now, I just think: “two thousand years after the execution of Louis XVI”, and --- Bingo! there’s my overdraft!
Note: Spanish speakers say “La Alhambra” , “la almohada”, “el alcázar”, “el almacén”, etc. The Arabic article has become a part of the Spanish word, as Dr. Techie points out.
