With skies gray and the ongoing threat of a storm hovering overhead I drove along heading to my various destinations, my mind busy sorting through the different ideas I had for today’s blog.
The discrimination I felt yesterday, that resulted in some mental exercises on my part, to decipher why I was allowing someone else’s ignorant behaviour to waste my time.

I did have to cogitate on the experience, and verbalize what had happened to my patient, understanding husband. His concern that I was alright, was warming, and I soon let go of the incident and moved on. But, in those minutes while I fumed, I considered writing a letter to the manager,or contacting their head office, etc etc. Then as the moments passed and life around me took an a different hue, the further we drove away towards our next destination, I thought why waste my time.
Today I got a notice from Apple, there was a charge on it that was foreign to me, it was dated today, it was for $1.46 Not much I know. But what was it for? when you click on the charge it doesn’t describe what it was for, and when you try to find out, Whoa Becky! You need a road map just to get to customer service. When you call, you are put on hold and they after waiting for over 10 minutes, you get hung up on. Try again, and guess what, it happens again. It is only 1.46, but it is the principle of it all.
If someone has fraudulently used my card number, 1.46 or not… it has to be addressed. This means a trip downtown tomorrow to the Apple store. gas, my time, Bah humbug!

All this to say, my day aside from the nattering of my chipmunk mind, has been good, in fact, most of it was VERY good
Thank you for listening to the imperfections of the day, I will sleep soundly this evening, and have a grand day tomorrow. Service is at 10:00 a.m. see you then.
