The morning routine. They get so grumpy if you try to rush the morning routine.

I see this and I think it looks like a colour blind christmas scene.

Surely any prestige associated with the “black card” in taken away when the chip is popping out and the card itself is being held together with painters tape. Oh the fun me and this card have had.
