Are you his mummy?

And on a more curious note, there are now high schools which have done away with the failing grade altogether, and now pass anyone. So the concept of "not failing a test", well, blame public schools who like to have positive numbers and are pressured by all sides to let a student who is otherwise . . . not up to standard . . . slide through. Because everyone has a different learning curve and we shouldn't dare punish those who learn slower, so let's pass them now rather than later.

I could rave about schools for ages, but . . . why?

Also, I so need to take my driving test soon. This is the last time I let my actual license lapse

No, no, he *should* be behind a wheel. A monster truck wheel. That's moving in reverse.

Odd. oO Visa and MC are the same company.

It's AMEX that I usually hear merchants complaining about -- they're notorious for having fees roughly *double* what others charge, and taking twice as long to actually send the payments to the vendors...For overseas vendors, expect that time to double >_>
Visa and Mastercard are not the same company, they route through the same network through so signing up for both is hardly any more investment then signing up for one.

Where I am, 'mommy' is spelled 'mummy'. Soo.....
