|Maybe they were just looking for a BANK that was open.|
This morning my alarm went off the usual 25 minutes before I need to drive our youngest to school. Then I remembered that I also needed to get to the bank this morning. Not the drive-through...like, the kind of banking where you actually NEED TO WALK INSIDE THE BUILDING, preferably not in your jams, but the sign on the door only says you can't wear hoodies or possibly masks, so I'm probably OK.
I hit the snooze only once, because I'm responsible like that, and got dressed in Actual Clothes That Match. I even brushed my hair and put on makeup, even though I totally did not have time to shower, so my hair was barely passable. I never do any of this at 7:50 a.m. when I'm driving, because it's a quick drive to the school and back, and I figure I'm good if I have shoes on, right? I do pass people on my way home from the school sometimes, and I think...maybe I'm slipping a little. These people got dressed for the day like 2 HOURS ago. I used to actually care about this stuff.
Today I knew I'd be a little early for the bank, so I went through the car wash, and got gas, then texted a friend I haven't seen in way too long, who I may see for lunch later (for which I will shower and possibly even shave my legs--I promise), to kill time. I barely registered that the bank parking lot was...empty. I KNOW.
At 9:04 a.m., I grabbed my banking stuff and walked to the bank door. Yanked on it. Nothing.
What the-- ??
I did the thing where you cup your hands on the glass and peer inside. The place was dark. My first thought was, Oh, great. They've been robbed. Followed by...seriously? No one showed UP on time??
There wasn't a sign on the door, so I drove through the drive-up window. Like there's going to be some lady waiting there to help me, in the dark. And THAT'S when I saw the sign that said:
"We will be closed Monday, Oct. 13th for COLUMBUS DAY"
I have a smart phone that can tell me when I've eaten too much, but it can't remember to tell me not to get dressed on the ONE DAY OF THE WEEK when there's no one at the bank.
I'm celebrating by staying in my jams, for the rest of the day.
