On the way to work each morning I pass by a furniture store that has a digital billboard. Being a furniture store it seems like the billboard is always flashing brightly one of two things. Either a “going out of business” sale, or a “grand opening” sale. Why is it that furniture stores only have sales during grand openings and going out of business times? Has it ever occured to them that maybe that’s why they’re constantly going out of business because they don’t have sales at any other times? And how often can a furniture store go out of business? Seems like every few months they’re going out of business. It must be hard times for furniture makers everywhere….people already have a place to sit! I’d like to see a furniture store have a “we’re doing just fine” sale. But I digress…

I always check the clock on the billboard as I sit in my car at the stop light. I use it as a gauge to see if I’m going to be late when I roll into work. If the sign reads 7:26 or later, I’m screwed, but earlier than that I will be on time and sometimes I’m even early! Today I felt like I was running a little late so I was eager to see how much I could save on a solid oak armoire and also what time it was. As I looked up at the bright blinking billboard it read: 7:70.

Damn. I’m late.
