TechTyger's 4th of July Weekend Hell Caused By Ill-Prepared Firework Stand Owners

From TechTyger:

The credit card processing company I work for has cellular modems that include encryption and such to allow credit cards to be run through registers with no land line connections. Our biggest customers for them are seasonal businesses, like firework stands. It's Saturday, July 2nd, and I've just had several people call and bitch at me because they didn't contact us to have their seasonal accounts reopened, and the people who can do it are not available on this holiday weekend for some reason. 
 
There are three occasions a year where firework stands make most of their money, New Year's, xmas, and The Fourth Of July. It's not like it sneaks up on you, the date is right there in the name! How is it my fault you waited until the last possible second to test the thing that allows you to make money? We have limited access to the stuff at the best of times, and this is not only a weekend, but a holiday weekend, so how is it my fault you didn't allow for problems? You've had an entire year to plan for this, and you failed...
