Puts a smile on my face – Political commercials make me nuts. All of them. We record programs so we can skip the commercials. If watching live, we mute them except for the Farmers Insurance dog commercials. Watching the Mer-Mutts do synchronized swimming in a flooded house always makes me laugh. Give me a good animal commercial any day.
When did that happen? – One of my banks was merged/bought-out/taken over by another bank. When that happens something always goes wrong and I need to go in to the branch. They closed my favorite branch with the easy parking and access. In looking at the locations I noticed that they are open 10 to 3. Several years ago the made the hours “customer friendly.” There were evening hours and Saturdays too. I guess that all went away!
Woo Nellie! – I was making the beloved husband a sandwich and noticed that the lunch meat package said Nova Flakes at $18 per pound. He doesn’t eat that. I checked the contents and it was his usual roast beef which is less than half that price. You really need to check everything. The deli person punched in the wrong number. He went back to get the difference refunded but I was disappointed that the deli didn’t refund his whole cost. They made a mistake that required him to drive back. Customer friendly? I think not.
Kicking it up a notch – In retirement I don’t need to hurry. I can do things at my leisure. I try not to schedule more than one or two things a day. I don’t remember how I did so much more before. Enter one loved relative with a broken bone and it all comes back. Suddenly I found myself multi-tasking, scheduling and planning. Just like in the old days. This old girl can still do it, even if I’m reluctant.
Speaking of which – This past week I have learned a lot about mobility issues and solutions to them. My sis-in-law cannot move around easily so we are trying some things, making it up as we go. There are some really cool solutions out there that weren’t available when my mother was ill.
So how was your week?
