National Days – Week of November 27th

cybermondayCyber Monday – 11/27

It is Cyber Monday. It’s the time of year when you can get a great deal today on something you didn’t want yesterday.

In honor of Cyber Monday, Amazon has a Segway on sale for $400 off its regular price. So good news, it’s never been cheaper to look like an idiot.

Yesterday was Cyber Monday, where Americans spent billions of dollars while shopping online. And tomorrow we’ll be celebrating What Did I Buy Wednesday?


National Giving Day – 11/28

What bounces and makes kids cry?
My donation check to Children in Need.

Want to be Invisible to other people? Just stand in the doorway of a supermarket holding a charity tin.

A local charity had never received a donation from the town’s banker, so the director made a phone call.

“Our records show you make $500,000 a year, yet you haven’t given a penny to charity,” the director began. “Wouldn’t you like to help the community?”

The banker replied, “Did your research show that my mother is ill, with extremely expensive medical bills?”

“Um, no,” mumbled the director.

“Or that my brother is blind and unemployed? Or that my sister’s husband died, leaving her broke with four kids?”

“I … I … I had no idea.”

“So,” said the banker, “if I don’t give them any money, why would I give any to you?”
