Happy Good Friday (if that's not an oxymoron).
I should have had a standing order paid today, but my bank has kindly allowed the computer the day off as it is a bank holiday.
They also give the computer the weekend off, so it doesn't get too tired.
And guess what? Monday is a bank holiday too.
So the standing order due today will actually be paid on Tuesday.
Welcome to the world of 365 days a year, 24/7 electronic banking.
And the banks tell us they are listening to customers.
