Bit of a strange day today  
I've felt unsettled all day today. It started with an email via Linkedin, from the regional manager of the bank which bought the one I used to work for, inviting me for a coffee and to discuss opportunities to join her team. I really, really don't want to go back to targets and being customer-facing in a branch - but what if she has something else in mind? I won't know until I talk to her.

I was planning on ringing her during my break today, but discovered once I got to the bus stop that I'd left my phone at home. I didn't have time to go back and get it, not if I wanted to get to work on time. All day it's been like this weird itch, not having my phone. Amazing, really; ten years ago I was lucky if I remembered to turn it on, and now it's such a part of me that I was actually considering going to Optus at lunchtime, getting a new phone and having my number ported across. Yep, that bad.

Another email this morning advised me that my Subway card points are going to expire if I don't swipe my card at a Subway store before the end of the month. Thing is, the card is only valid in the UK, which means those points were collected in June, 2010 - four years and eight months seems to be a really random length of time for the points to be valid.

Technology can be a two-edged sword for sure. I wonder what the world will be like for my grandkids.

I never actually worked for this lady; my bank, even after the takeover, always operated with a separate chain of command. I've tried ringing her today and it went to voicemail; we shall see.
