(tear open envelope, pull out the card), and the winner is........me.

Yup, me (buffoon/plonker/dispstick/wally/wazzock/numpty/...)

I set up an Outlook calendar about two months ago to remind me of our wedding anniversary. Princess beetles off to work and gives me a peck on the cheek and says (affectionately, despite the ghastly error on my part) "Happy anniversary, my love, even if you forgot."

Forgot, I didn't forget, but Outlook did. I switch on my PC and check the calendar and sure enough there's the entry and the reminder for the day before. Why didn't it remind me? I'd set the reminder for the day before on the day it should have reminded me on. I got the email reminder for The Day but for tomorrow! The shame of it all. Cry | :((

Stupid Outlook! Why didn't it have the sense to think, I'm sure he wants the reminder on the 9th, not the 10th. It's 2014, pooters are meant to be smart and reponsible for ruining running your life. Big Grin | :-D
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
