For those of you celebrating a 3 day weekend, the fun should already be underway, that is if you plan on having fun. For some of you I suspect this might just be 3 days of rest and relaxation. For me? Well, as with most holidays, I work.
Historically, the Memorial Day weekend has always been one of the strongest for the orange retailer that I work for, but this year that's up in the air. For my store, sales can pop over the $1 million mark over the long weekend, mostly from purchases made in our garden department. Grills and curb appeal, that's what people buy, mostly grills. Cookout season has arrived.
I cut down my nectarine tree yesterday. There were more dead branches on it than live ones.
My only bit of really big news is that someone's been attempting to put charges on my debit card. The first was for $132.95 from Agoda (something or other). My bank shot it down. They didn't get into my bank account, but they had my card number, which meant closing that number and getting another. Of course that didn't mean the perpetrators were going to stop trying. Last night someone tried to buy something from Dealsdirect, but the old number is now inactive. I guess this means that at least 2 different individuals had that number. Naturally, I started thinking about where I used that card. The only subscription I have linked to it is Planet Fitness, so it's possible someone may have wormed their way into that database. Two weeks ago I used it twice down in York, for lunch and then again at Dairy Queen for desert, so it's not like I use it frequently. This is a curious thing, isn't it?
