Sometimes real life things happen and we don’t mention them on blogs. That’s really a shame because, in hindsight, many of them are kind of funny and the ones that aren’t funny are “teachable moments”. For example …
Last Friday, I got an email from my credit card company letting me know that a purchase made on my card exceeded my preset purchase cost limit. Interesting, especially considering the fact that I was at work and definitely not out shopping. I logged into my account to find thousands of dollars spent. Excellent. (I called the fraud line immediately, got the account closed, and all charges dismissed. Woo! But a little tip: Set those purchase cost limits! Because the fraudulent purchases were made in my area and at stores where I sometimes shop, they hadn’t yet been caught as unusual activity. If I hadn’t received the limit email, I wouldn’t have known as quickly.)
One night last week, I was making guacamole (which turned out to be a terrible failure) and my extra avocado rolled off the counter and behind my fridge. It took a whole team of us to rescue it.
I stopped in an art store the other day to grab some supplies. I took a good fifteen minutes exploring my options and finally making a decision. The cashier rang everything up before I realized that I didn’t have my wallet. Oops!
Cheers to real life, ya’ll!
