PIN — Lost in Translation


PIN — Lost in Translation

I was in a meeting the other day when a fellow from Australia started to regale the group on "Pins".

Well I thought that meant Personal Identification Number and couldn’t for the life of me figure out what they had to do with parking. Maybe you had to enter a PIN to make a meter work, or get a pin when you signed up for a debit card. or whatever.

Well, it turns out the translation from OZ to America for the letters are "Parking Infringement Notice." AHHH now it all makes sense.
