When it comes to printed calendars, it seems like it would be very difficult to screw one up. So needless to say I was a bit discombobulated when I looked at my desk calendar to confirm a recent appointment.
Can you identify the problem?
The calendar features a collection of Wondermark cartoons from David Malki, who uses Victorian images in his panels in particularly funny and absurd ways. I frequently find them laugh-out-loud-- check them out here. Fortunately there was an easy fix, as outlined in his response:
"I was notified today that apparently November and December have two "22" dates. It was news to me until this morning! My explanation is that it doesn't count as a mistake if they are ALL like that (which they are). My suggested fix is attached (see below). This is a user-serviceable item."
Coincidentally, my nephew's birthday is November 22--so he was naturally quite thrilled over the error!
Just think about the poor person whose birthday fell on November 23rd. They would have missed out entirely! I like the suggested fix, but wonder if the QA department was fired for missing this obvious mistake.
Some weeks are that way, in that they have a second Monday, which for quite a few months was the day that the weekend emergency problems all had to be fixed.
Or like Garfield (the cat) used to say,"I know there is a Monday out there just waiting for me". Sometimes he is right.
