Not the least of which is the discounts I usually get at yarn shops/quilt stores/restaurants, etc.
My FAVORITE LYS offers a 20% discount on your birthday! Woo-Hoo!
...except, my birthday is tomorrow...which is Sunday...when the shop is closed...
Sorrow. Disappointment. Frustration.
So I called them up and asked how to proceed. I was told, and I quote:
"We realize that people are born on days we aren't open!"
This astute observation means that I can come in the day after my birthday (when they ARE open), show my driver's license, and still get my discount!
Joy! Excitement! Anticipation!
