Yesterday, Ruth went up to visit her father, and they went together on a roadtrip to New York State to pick up our son from school and bring him back to Ottawa where he's spending the summer.
So I'm all alone.
But that's okay. I don't mind being by myself every now and again. Last night I played some poker on the internet. Just a fun game, not for money. I came in 72nd out of 360 players. Not great. Then, I watched a movie...Where Eagles Dare (1968) with Clint Eastwood. Not a bad movie, but not as good as I expected it to be. And Clint had a fairly minor role in the whole thing. Much of the movie took place in Bavaria during the winter time. I though it was funny that their hands never seemed to get cold. Little glitch in the reality aspect of the filming, I think.
Today at the RV place, I had customer who was mathematically challenged. She starting getting mad at me, so I just called myself an idiot, and agreed with her...even though she was dead wrong.
For the sake of simplicity, I'll use round numbers. She had originally bought and paid for an item that was $10. She returned it two weeks ago, and at the same time she bought a different item for $50. I credited her returned item on the same invoice, and she paid $40. Then today, she wanted to return the second item. I handed her $50, and she said that's wrong, she only paid $40 for the item.
After me trying to explain it to her, and her getting angry with me, I handed her the $40 that she insisted was correct. People never cease to amaze me.
