Know Your Rights!

You can’t keep money you receive by mistake. Q. Do I have to give money back to a bank that gave me $50 too much? I went to a drivethrough window to make a credit card payment. When I left, I realized they gave me to much  money back. I immediately returned in good faith to give back the overpayment, but the teller said everything was fine, “I was not overpaid.” Can I keep the money?

Aggravations

Are we irritated, frustrated, angry or just aggravated? I honestly believe most Americans are aggravated. If the topic of the present state of the government comes  up, I usually hear more than I want to hear. The first subject is Health Care, immediately followed by the lack of leadership by the President of the United States, and, finally, the behavior of our elected officials.

The Truth About DST, (or At Least How I See It)

Daylight Savings Time (DST) – the practice of advancing clocks during the months of longer days so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. What? You mean we really don’t get an “extra” hour of daylight? Yes, when you put it this way, it does seem absurd and yet, many people feel that they actually get an extra hour of daylight. I guess when the sun set at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 8 and then at approximately 7:30 on March 9, you do feel like you have gotten an extra hour of daylight

Why Don’t We Just Have a Snow Day?

This winter has been plagued with many icy days. I have heard many complaints about the school and their choosing to have delays instead of just closing for the day. Well, every time the school closes for the day, that day has to be made up.
