How does it work over the phone...

When I phone my bank, as part of the validation process they ask me to correctly state certain key characters of my password...

Bank : What is letter two of your password?

Me : Err.. it's kind of a sad Japanese looking girl with rosy cheeks and a tear in her eye.

Bank : And letter number seven?

Me : It's a happy looking dog.

Bank : No that's incorrect.

Me : A miserable cat?

Bank : No.

Me : A happy horse?

How novel.
