Client: The site isn’t accepting a date I’m trying to put in.
Me: What date is that?
Client: November 31st 2014.
Me: Oh, that’s because that’s not a valid date.
Client: What do you mean “not a valid date?” It’s an annual event and an important date to me. What’s changed that it’s no longer “valid?”
Me: November only has 30 days. Always has, as far as I know.
Client: …you should put a note on the website to avoid these situations.
Happy Repeal Day!
Prohibition was repealed 80 years ago today: December 5, 1933. Thirteen years of a (technically) dry nation ended, and Americans marched back into liquor stores and bars to celebrate.
So if anyone wonders why you are blackout drunk this morning, tell this it’s because you love history.
