2011 promises to be an interesting year.
This morning I opened the big refrigerator calendar I’d ordered from Amazon and started to enter known 2011 events: recycling and yard waste pick-up dates, weekends I lector at church, family birthdays, dentist appointments, etc.
Everything went fine until I finished with September and turned the page.
Apparently there will be no October in 2011. Instead, we are having two Septembers, followed by November and December.
By an extraordinary coincidence, not 30 minutes later Amazon Marketplace emailed an invitation to “share my experience” by rating my client transaction.
I chose to “Contact the Seller” in lieu of leaving scathing feedback, because sometimes things just happen. It probably was just a misfeed at the printer, not (as it briefly seemed) some diabolical plot to complicate my life. I expect the seller will do the right thing and send me a correctly configured replacement in good time.
In the meantime, it’s interesting to think that there are several other dual-September calendars out there from the same print run, and an equal number that jump from August right into October.
Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, “Check your calendar,” doesn’t it?
