Tick the Boxes

Enjoy a Sunday at a J D Wethersoon's pub by first ticking the boxes... and don't forget your table number.

J D Wetherspoon have so many rules, and you must obey. Shame that they often fail to obey the law of land by serving short pints.

It goes much deeper than that. This is the ATM that used to be part of my local Abbey branch, but the Abbey moved out. This is now a "credit union" and since it is not a full Abbey Branch, the ATM does not accept deposits.

Abbey opened a big office in Canary Wharf which I use most of the time.

A few months before Abbey left the building, I opened an Abbey Business Banking account, which is run through the ATM or by post (no transactions allowed at the counter). When I opened the account, I was happy in the knowledge that this ATM was very close to my home, and hence deposits and other transactions could be made easily.

And this was long before Abbey National was taken over by Santander

Benjys and Latency

I lament the end of the Benjys franchise. Doing a little research on the web a for Wikipedia article, and the Dead Cafe Society wiki, I easily discovered that the address of this branch was 38, Beak Street, London, W1F 9RG.

The branch has been closed since February 2007 yet almost a year later, the address is listed on several websites.

Perhaps I should check back in 12 months time to see if those pages have been updated?
