Cashpoint is a reasonable name. I've used it many times.

I was unclear, Gavin. I meant 'Hole in the wall' is a crap name.

I was reading out loud some of this waffle yesterday, and my colleague loudly interjected, "hole in the wall!" as if he'd coined the expression himself.

He was a bit gutted to learn it had been farted out of a corporate think-tank.

I think Cashpoint is a great name, and I doubt many would realise it is a trademark of Lloyds. I'm sure like many others I use it interchangeably with the term cash machine. I'm not sure what advantage ownership of the word gives Lloyds though.

Indeed.

Using a cashpoint has become a bit like hoovering.

Ooh! Thanks for posting that, always nice to have a full copy of the TSB signature tune without any voiceover.

Nowhere near as good, composed by Anne Dudley...
