My daughter got her SAT score back yesterday. She got 1450 and I am so proud of her! She worked hard and I can’t wait to see where her path leads her.
I do this a lot with door frames and my shoulders or the side of my arm. And thighs. Ugh.
Yes! What is it about door frames? I’ve lived in this house 11 years and door frames hit me at least once a week.
Our HOA president writes a message in our monthly newsletter and refers to himself in third person. It’s hilarious. “Our President this, Our President that.” It took me way too long to figure out he meant himself and not President Biden. It just makes him look like a fool.
He looks way too sweet and happy to be named Kylo Ren!
I spent my entire day eating junk food that I love and at about 4:30pm, I realize it’s all about dopamine. I saw an article recently that says that if you don’t get on your phone first thing that you don’t spend the day chasing a dopamine high. Do you think eating something healthy first thing would stop cravings over the course of the day?
This is what works for me. I’ll leave bed at 1am or 2am and make a cup of coffee. Wrap up in a cozy blanket on the couch, watch a comfort show, and I’m usually back in bed and asleep within an hour.
My husband held on tight to this trend until about 10 years ago. I had to stealthily supply him with non-striped shirts and sweaters for birthdays, holidays, random Tuesdays…
Scammers that scam old people via phone calls
Edit: ok this blew up so I'll add a few things
this isn't a "job" in the traditional sense but loads of call centers in India hire people to do this, you got to go through interviews and get paid a salary and commission
I was inspired by Mark Rober's latest video on tackling these scammers for this comment, but I appreciate kitboga and all the other guys doing great work wasting the scammers time or exposing these fraudsters
no this isn't "old people's fault if they fall for it because they had decades of experience" because when you get to a certain age your mental capacity reverts and you could become easily confused and misled hence why I specifically said old people and not scammers that scam everyone. Something comparable on the same scale would be child kidnappers but that's a separate category
the majority of the Indian population hates these guys as well and these scammers are a small portion of the population but if you watch mark's video on YouTube a lot of these scam corporations are protected by corrupt politicians and police so let's all do our part and shut these guys down
My 75 year-old mother was nearly scammed into wiring $66,000 to a scammer in Hong Kong about 2 months ago. Thankfully, after my parents went to the bank, they called my sister and said they thought there may be a problem. My sister was able to stop the transfer. The scammers somehow got my mom to download something that allowed them remote access to my mom’s computer. It was such a nightmare. Those people have a special place in hell waiting.
