How Far Can You Go?

Here are two funny articles, testing the limits of credit card signatures and items to mail.

Credit Card Signatures
Postal Experiments

Jonathan and I had the same conversation about Credit Cards the other day. For instance, the other day he went to buy groceries for his company and decided to get a few things for us while he was there. He put his items into 2 separate groups. He paid for the companies groceries with the company card and the cashier said "Thank you Mr. Cecil." Next he paid for our items with our card and the cashier said, "Thank you Mr. Grubbs!" THIS WAS THE SAME CASHIER who not only a minute before said a totally different name!

Ahhhhh.... good to know we are safe.

Also while I'm on my rant..... security checks at the airport. Now don't get my wrong the luggage thing...fine I understand. The having to have your ID available at all times.... makes no sense what so ever. If I am a terrorist who has devised a horrible scheme... I think I'll be smart enough to make a fake ID. My opinion is either have a machine to scan our IDs through (I think nightclubs have such devices... yet airports don't?) or stop wasting our time and making the lines that much longer.

Same for Disneyland. We spend last Memorial Day weekend there. Jonathan, on the second day of the trip, realizes after lunch (being a diabetic) he forgot his syringe for his insulin. So he goes back to the hotel, grabs a couple of them, puts them in the front pocket of his backpack. He then proceeds to re-enter the "security" check point having several syringes in the front pocket of his backpack.... No one asked him a thing!

There.... I'm totally done... promise!

Good points, Shea. We feel safer if we don't think about it! But I guess it's like that no matter what we do. Even if we eat something or go to a public restroom, those things don't always seem safe, but I've never gotten a bug from a truck stop, and I've never been shot at at Disney Land!

So, which one is he, Mr. Cecil or Mr. Grubbs??
