It’s been a pretty exciting weekend. George decided he wanted to learn to ride his bike with pedals and no training wheels. We’ve been going for the last 2-4 weeks with him scooting the bike without pedals on for balance.
I completely expected that I’d have to spend a couple of hours holding him, assisting him, encouraging him.
This is what actually happened.
I think so. Then again, I’m biased. He doesn’t hit too badly for a 3 year old, and I love his square drive.
I’m going to start by saying that I’m an American Express customer, I have been for a long time and I’m very happy with the service that I’ve been provided by the company.
From my twitter friends I saw this:
RT @: wow. just wow. RT @: AmEx: “We discourage the use of special characters because…”
Holy fuck. That is just so full of dumb. There’s a whole swimming pool of dumb right there. Now, I can’t tell if the person responding is dumb, the company is dumb for giving them the form letter – so I’m going to presume it’s the latter.
Here’s a clue American Express. Don’t be fucking idiots. You do or say anything stupid about security and people will notice and call you out. Now is a good time for you to sort your shit, issue a public apology, retract the stupid email and also fix your retarded website.
That is all.
