It’s cold and wet, but that doesn’t really matter as i’ve been inside all day and have nothing much to do apart from sending parcels.
I stayed late because we’ve been having trouble with a parcel that needs collecting by a courier. They keep coming at 7pm and later, and can’t work out that this is no good for a shop. This is, it seems our fault for closing so early. They are busy and so we have to fit in with them. Whatever happened to the customer always being right? As I pointed out to them, if we have to pay someone for an extra couple of hours to get the parcel picked up we might as well use a more expensive, but more reliable, courier in the first place.
When I finally finished I found that someone had parked their car so close to mine I had a problem getting in. As it’s a private car park this is doubly vexatious.
At home, I had post. One letter was from my credit card company telling me that they were altering the terms and conditions, They are calculating the interest differently now, but as I haven’t used it for years this doesn’t really affect me. They are also going to stop allowing people to use credit cards in casinos and online gambling sites. This was news to me. I’d been told you can’t use credit cards for buying lottery tickets, but didn’t realise you could use them in casinos. I’ve never actually been in a casino (another gap in my miserably grey life) but always assumed they were full of rich people flashing cash around. The idea of feeding my gambling habit by using a credit card is a bleak vision of modern life.
