Default Conundrum!!!

I got up this morning and got ready for work as normal. Was on my way to the cities when the GF calls and asked me where I was. "I am on my way in to work why?" Thinking maybe her brother whom broke his leg the day before was having issues and needed help or a favor. She asked why I was not on my way down for church and she wasn't aware I had work on Sunday. Hell me neither. So I rushed back home changed and showed up gracefully late for church. I thought yesterday was Sunday because when I set my watch on the months turn to be accurate with the day I must have set it in the PM frame making it appear to be the next day after 12 noon. So it seems I somehow lost a day somewhere and feel pretty stupid about it.

Anyone else have this happen before

This has caused an issue now because I offered cards up for auction on the BST and since my thought it was Sunday I put on there Ends tonight without a date. I F'ed this up bad and don't want to piss anyone off but no matter what I think it's gonna happen. This is out of the norm for me. I feel its a honest mistake but am in a perplexing situation. Should have just listed them on Ebay I am sorry guys for the confusion

Seems like an honest mistake, but when you post at 1pm on 5/19 that the auction ends tonight at 11:59 CST, that would lead me to believe that it should have ended yesterday 5/19 at 11:59. Not sure why a date is really needed when one says it ends tonight and even states CST, so that eliminates any confusion with time zones.

Just my .02

I always think Thursday is Friday (or maybe it's just wishful thinking).


My question is this -- if you thought yesterday was Sunday, why didn't you go to church yesterday?

GF works nights from 12-8 and I have been staying up late emailing with her since I haven't been working a lot this past few weeks. I went down yesterday morning and didn't say anything about church thinking I was gonna get out of going. Not something I like to do but it's important to her so I go. I let her get some sleep and made my post. I ended up having to go anyways this morning.

I ended them as a no sale. I f'ed this crap up so bad.

Andrew I think it's nice that you do something that may not be your cup of tea to make your girlfriend happy.

I also think you're being too hard on yourself -- in the overall scheme of things, this is no biggie -- sleep well tonight.

Greg

Andrew it sounds like you have a great girlfriend; go with her to church as much as you can. I promise you'll never go wrong doing that. For me, knowing where I'm going when its all over makes work, family, collecting, life itself much better!

Now that I've retired I have no idea what day it is. Seems like every day is a Saturday.

You guys think not knowing what day it is is bad...on Friday I was hitting a bunch of garage sales and when I left one I walked down the driveway and got in a car that did not belong to me. That was one of the strangest feelings I think I've ever had...I got out of that car so fast and looked around to see if anyone saw me...as far as I can tell no one did. The car was identical to mine...green 1997 Camry so I at least have an excuse.

Default Priorities

Hi Andrew,
You need to get your priorities straight:

#1. buying cards
#2 Net54
#3 Card shows
#4 ebay
#5 Selling cards
#6 trading cards
#7 reading price guides and the standard catalog
#8 girlfriend
#9 Church
#10 everything else

Hope this helps. Rick
