11:59 pm - Needed money, could not get money

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Today I was going to get cash for my trip to MFF. I drove up to the ATM at my bank... but it was out of service.

So I drove around to the front of the bank, parked, got out, and walked to the door... and found that it was locked. WTF?! I checked the hours... it should be open, it's only 2 pm...

And then I saw the sign saying the bank was closed for Veterans' Day.

Oh. Right.

Happy Veterans' Day! Let's salute our brave men who defended our freedom, by... not being able to get money today. Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

The second-tier "banker's holidays" are annoying because the people who get the day off don't need the day off, and the people the holidays were created to honor don't get the day off.

So I'm guessing "Presidents Day" fails on the second qualification?
