Is Mercury in Retrograde?
Or is it just me? To be fair, I never have really gotten the hang of Tuesday. (It IS Tuesday, yes? In case the people in the nice soothing scrubs want to ask me?)
I woke up this morning as I do every mornng: prior to 6 am. ( Not because I have to, I just can't sleep past 6 am unless I'm only 2 or 3 hours into my sleep. Then I can sleep maybe til 9. I'm not nocturnal...more diurnal, like a raccoon!) My thoughts are all over the place today, and it seems like everyone else I am encountering is too! I made my way downstairs for a quiet pot of coffee; my poor old Chief of Security followed me downstairs VERY SLOWLY before he went out to pee, and when he came back inside he went straight back to bed! The next time he came down, he was too tuckered to climb up those stairs again! (but he sure had fun chasing his stick!)
An hour into my morning I got a phone call from my bank, informing me in quite snotty terms that my safety deposit box payment was still overdue, and that it was 3 months late, and what was I going to do about it?...
To make a long and very aggravating story somewhat shorter; I took on a big bank, made them admit their employees had MADE A MISTAKE, made them fix it, and made them pay for it...if not monetarily, then on principle. However, in order to do so, I had to insist that the bank investigate the transaction to see where their employees had committed the inefficiency that led to the whole problem. Tomorrow, I'm going back to the bank, and the Customer Service Manager who insisted that she was correct and I was at fault, and she will APOLOGIZE for the way she treated me, or I'm taking my puzzles and balloons and going home.
Now if anyone wants me, I'll be curled up on the couch in the fetal position with my minky blanket over my head trying to sing Soft Kitty in the round...
How's YOUR Tuesday going?
