Am I wrong, I thought debit

Am I wrong, I thought debit cards could only be accessed by a pin number? I don't have one so I am not sure.

Every debit card I've ever

Every debit card I've ever used can also be run as a credit card (because they're all backed by Visa or some other company) if the clerk tells it to. If you just swipe it first it will recognize a debit card, but if the clerk tells the system it's credit before swiping it won't matter.

....which is why I think

....which is why I think clerks should ask for ID on ALL cards. It may take a minute, but I certainly don't mind occasionally when one asks me. They are protecting me. Most stores don't care though, they just want the money.
