My debit card went on a shopping spree at Walmart the other day. Since I do not shop at Walmart, I called the bank on Saturday morning to dispute the charges. Erica was there to answer the phone. She erased the charges, canceled my card and promised that I would have a new one within one to two business days.
Which begs the question, what is a business day? Since Erica was at work on a Saturday morning, obviously Saturday is a business day for her. My partner had to go to work today, so obviously Sunday is a business day for him. Isn’t every day a business day these days? The idea of working 9 to 5 Monday through Friday is kind of out the window, don’t you think? Isn’t everybody pretty much open for business 24/7 any more? So every day is a business day. So I should have my new debit card by Monday. We shall see.
I’ve been watching a bit of football this afternoon. I just witnessed a player run the ball in from the one yard line for a touchdown. The way he celebrated in the end zone, you would think he had run for 99 yards. Shouldn’t the celebration be reserved for the guys who got him to the one yard line in the first place? I mean, whoopee, you ran for one yard. Big deal. Now do your silly little celebration dance and make a fool of yourself.
Turning to politics, this cartoon by Adam Zyglis pretty much hits the nail on the head. The Republicans weren’t doing any celebration dances this past week, were they? I think it will likely be a while before they do.
