Now That's Service.

Got a telephone call at 8:15 this morning from the fraud unit of my bank's business credit card division. Apparently, they monitor activity in the accounts 24/7, and they were calling to check on possible fraudulent activity on my account.

Did I really make an online purchase of Moody Blues concert tickets?

Yes, I most certainly did. They're playing in Santa Rosa on March 9, and I'm going. So there.

I saw them live 13 or 14 years ago at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, and have always wanted to see them again.

The fraud investigator on the phone got all excited because he's about my age and has been a fan of the Moody Blues as long as I have--ever since Days of Future Passed was released (gulp) 40 years ago.

So I am going off to see the Moody Blues in a couple of months. Shiny, eh?

In the lamentedly gone "Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip" there was a sketch in the shpw-within-the-show about a credit card company calling a guy to ask if he really spent $30 on a pair of sox--and didn't he know he could buy 4 pair for $10 at walmart?
Wouldn't it be great if the company would call you whenever you were about to make an idiotic impulse purchase--NOT that the Moody Blues are such a purchase, mind you!
Some try to tell me
Thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be
You will be in the end
