The Gift Of A Complete Picture

Two days ago, I was so annoyed with BDO again. One of my pet peeves is inefficient service and senseless policies. I was trying to log in to my online banking, and I was given the following “options”. I decided to waive (updating my) password (waive password does not make sense, like I want to do away with the whole password thing?). If I was not frustrated, I would have laughed! It was like, “gotcha!” Are you freaking kidding me right?

It was almost funny if I was not so annoyed.

I tried to rebel by holding out as long as I could, but of course I needed to do stuff, so in the end, I gave in and changed my password. The following day, I saw this on my Facebook news feed:

Kudos to reimbursing clients’ lost hard-earned money.

I immediately logged in (using biometrics, what is my new password again?) to check if my P5M is intact. I’m glad to find out nobody dared touch what little I have got left. This incident reminded me to see the bigger picture. I mean, sure it would have been way less exasperating if the bank asked us to change passwords instead of giving us non-existing options.

When I feel down sometimes, I try to force myself to see the bigger picture. That what is happening right now is a part of a grand scheme of things. That someday, all the dots will connect and I will realize that what happened needed to happen. I am grateful I am trying to look past what is right in front of me.

Does it feel like nothing makes sense right now?

    One my bank needed me to do that every time I logged in via internet banking. Note I do it through their app where they have double verification system.

    1. That is insane!!! How do you keep track of all that passwords?! And they ask old password before we can create a new one.

        1. So inconvenient! Have you tried biometrics? Or still the same, have to change every log in?

            One of the app works with face recognition. The other I need to put in the password.

            1. Yeah the problem with face recognition is if someone knows and tries to access while you’re sleeping maybe. I don’t know… lol
