How nice.  I'm sure the Social Security Administration would love to know that its "employees" are using such salty language with clients.  This is a common phone scam.  They're probably fishing for your SSN.

Yeah and definitely watch the calls during tax season about being audited and such, happens every year.

My phone has been off over a week.  Again, my absence sucks, I should be punished ;) ha

I have a phone line that seems to be a regular magnet for annoying robocalls.  I should investigate a way to get them to stop, as the Do Not Call registry is a joke and pressing 9 to make them stop doesn't work either.  They woke me up this morning and I wanted to seek them out and firebomb their homes.  It's gotten to where I don't answer that phone unless it's someone I know and they leave a message on the machine so I can pick up while they're still talking.

I'm glad you're here at any rate.  Don't be a stranger.  Hope all is well with the job(s) and the kids.

Hey Bea, good to see you here!

I haven't had a landline in years so I don't have that to worry about but I do get a ton of spam calls on my cell. I don't answer unless it resolves to someone in my contact list. Typically, no voicemail is left but if they do leave a message, 19 out of 20 times (and that may be low) it's in Chinese. I probably have 300+ numbers in my block list by now.

Ha.  I get those calls with the messages in Mandarin.  It amazes me that they bother.  My knowledge of that language is limited to counting to five and asking for beer, ice cream, watermelon and a few other food stuffs, saying please and thank you & you are welcome.  God only knows what they are going on about in those messages.

I block them, but it's like playing whack a mole.  I don't think it makes a difference.

Got another one. Enter you Verizon password.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Say hi from me when you can.

Nothing like good old blighty in black and white. Makes a nice change from all the grey.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

Mom almost killed me and the roommate, and she's not even here.

Apparently last night when she made the pulled chicken sandwich, she used the OVEN portion of the toaster oven. I don't do that, because the oven is nearly as old as I am (I've been using this specific one since I was six) So I just use the TOASTER portion. It's a model 001, and they're up in the 3k now.

Anyway, she has a previously minor annoying trait of leaving the microwave door wide open, time on the clock. It's just... the worst, and at the same time, such trivial poo.

Well, this time it wasn't trivial. roommate slapped the toaster oven shut while making a sandwich. Turns out it was set to broil. The cheese that was on the tin foil was BLACKENED.

Thankfully I was grabbing some ice cubes for a beverage and unplugged the thing. But goddamnit mom.

I can't even call her. Her friend lives right on the last street in the US, then it's the TJ estuary, so if she takes her phone over there, we get insultingly large roaming fees. So the phone is here, her and the dog are not.
