Bank Open Shock
Huttonian has regularily failed to get his head around Scottish Bank Holidays as previous posts will reveal here
The practice in the Borders seems to take them and given half a chance the English ones as well but Fife is something else again. Today 3 August is apparently a Scottish Bank Holiday as this website reveals
But when I got up to the Dalgety Bay shopping centre, more in hope, than expectation, I found that it seemed a normal Monday morning. The Post Office was in full swing-no offer on second class stamps as we used to contemplate in Hutton, but no matter it was open. I enquired in Tesco Metro if it was a Bank Holiday; yes. Why is everything open as normal. 'Its a Bank Holiday; lots of people around; don't make much difference around here'
Bank Holidays are statutory for Banks See Lex Bankus Stat xxxiii, cap Cv sec iii Georgius iii (mdcclxxiii)
So I fully expected to find one premises closed at the shopping centre;
The sub sub branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland.
It was open
Bonuses all round
