Dear Stena

When I go to your website to check sailing times, please do not show me 13:45 as the time the afternoon HSS departs, with 13:00 being the check-in time, because that means we can't take the cats to the cattery tomorrow morning and still make the ferry.

(The car reckons it'd take 4:25 to get there. and the cattery isn't open that early, and ...)

Yes, I know that 13:45 is when this afternoon's HSS departs. But displaying today's departure time and not tomorrow's is not really helpful, because today's ferry has already departed.

Yes, I know I have the itinerary, and it says the sailing time is 15:30. But you might have changed the sailing times closer to the date. You did it last October, after all.

Thank you so much.

Yours

*squignature*

Take them today? That's what we always have to do with the lads when we have early-ish departures.

No, it's OK. Tomorrow's sailing time is 15:30, it's just that they list the sailing times for the current period, of which today is the last day.

For 15:30, get there by 14:45, allow 5 hours travel time, that means leaving at 9:45, the cattery is open at 9. It's just a sailing time nearly two hours earlier was eating any contingency time.

But Great One, should Your minions be attempting to stop us attending Your Presence on Saturday?

My programming minions clearly need a List of Minions, so that when they write software, they can be sure to add in exceptions if the person using it is a fellow minion. Either that, or My minions need to come up with an electronic secret handshake.
