INSTA 0414 2

Happened to me recently. Feeling benevolent towards mankind (it was a Tuesday), I decided to ‘pay the dealer’ and put a few sheckles to the needy. It was a bit awkward when my card betrayed me and would not process. I had changed the PIN code and, in the heat of the moment, I forgot! Way to let me down, brain! I scuttled away with my coat over my head.


I am a Sansei, with two teens, and a hamster. This blog is a repository for ideas and observations, expressed in cartoon form, by and large. A bit of a journal too. Feel free to follow me on INSTAGRAM @ WILTOONS, (the Twitter for people who like to go out) where I post a journal comic. Thanks for dropping by! The pic is of me and my boy Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits. (not really a fan but he wanted his pic with me) © Wilton Sugiyama and Wiltoons, 2009 to 2020.

  1. We have PINs, passwords, and account names galore to remember. Even worse, they demand to be changed regularly. What’s a lowly human to do?

    1. Biometrics has to take over, it has at our airport, thumb and eye scans there since 2005 or so, for staff and public alike. Of course those can be defeated, ie Minority Report, the old harvested eyeball trick.

    1. Thete is not, and I have been lightly bruised by those standards. It has the potential to ruin your life. Social media stinks that way.

    1. Facebook and insta would have us think that a perfect life IS possible, as all cosmetically altered posts would attest. Happily, more credence and attention is given to the mental anguish this can stir up.

  2. How kind of you Anne! Wished there were more kind people, it is so easy to be kind and yet so scarce these days.

  3. I haven’t had this happen before, but I suspect it’s in my future. :)
