Yesterday, I got this friendly reminder email at work:
This friendly reminder triggered many unfriendly thoughts in the unfriendly parts of my brain, like “Oh no! My license is going to expire and I won’t be able to work and I love my work and usually they send me a renewal notice in the mail but I didn’t see it and bureaucracies are so screwed up since COVID and I better do something about this NOW!” So I went to the Massachusetts licensing board website and spent many unfriendly minutes trying to renew my license as soon as possible (as I was directed to do by that friendly reminder) until I found a screen that said “your license renewal code will be mailed to you approximately 60 days before the expiration date of your license.” There is absolutely nothing I can do until I get that renewal code, which made me wonder why I was sent that friendly reminder 90 days in advance.
I mean, really, how friendly is that?
Do you see any friendly reminders in my images for today?
There’s another not-so-friendly reminder from the Daily Bitch Calendar.
Two friendly reminders: today is a good day to have donuts and play outdoors.
The Peter Gunn theme by Henry Mancini is a friendly reminder of my childhood.
This is a friendly reminder that all comments are welcomed, below.
Thanks to all who remind me that there are friendly people out there, including YOU!
I always smile when I hear Fred Flintstone finish that theme with his Yabba Dabba Do, Ann, but, I’ll share this less ubiquitous and more subtle theme that for some reason has run through my head recently. Cheers to the instrumental of 80s police drama ‘Hill Street Blues.’ https://youtu.be/iiL2VgVBpdA
