Just a reminder and warning. There apparently been an uptick in an old email scam lately. This one is a version of an airline sending you an email confirming a recent airline ticket and asking you to verify the purchase. On the surface it looks legit but if you carefully look at the email there are some significant red flags. One is the ever present poor spelling, punctuation, and grammar. The second one is the supposed flight number is six or seven numbers long, way too long for even a commuter flight that are often four numbers. Third, and less obvious, is that the departure airport is typically JFK in New York which is right now on Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) but the departure time is listed as Central Daylight Time (CDT). Naturally they're looking for you to click on the embedded link to provide information like a credit card number in order to contest the charge.

I recently got an e-mail confirming a $112 app I purchased. Huh? "Click here to . . . ." "Click here if you didn't purchase it." There was a very tiny Apple logo at the bottom. Yeah, right. How 'bout clicking the DELETE button.

Good for you Colordeagua! I'm amazed that people fall for these scams but they do and it's big business. The IRS scam alone is estimated to have netted $40 million and maybe more as their accounts and bookkeeping were hard to track. I shouldn't be surprised but just a couple of weeks ago my wife and I were having lunch out when one of our trivia team members came in. She was all excited about her second and part time job as a "secret shopper". Mental alarm bells went off in both of our brains and we asked her for details. My wife just happened to have her iPad with her and we searched the Internet with some of the information. It immediately came back with the scam details including even the same name as her new boss. Long story short they scammed her out of nearly $2,000 by having her cash checks for them.

So, apparently I have the whole "being a roommate" rules wrong.

I would have thought that if you use/dirty your roommate's pan, you clean it. At least twice now, they've used my electric skillet, then left it sit dirty for days until I finally break down and clean it myself. Same goes for my toaster oven and it's pans. I'm always having to clean up their greasy splatters in the oven.

Sigh.

Whenever I use anything in the kitchen, I clean up right away, and keep the dirty dishes in my room till I can wash them (which in itself takes several days cause they pile up their dirty dishes in the sink for days, and I can't get to the sink).

Double sigh.

And before you all start telling me to tell them to clean up after themselves, or just move out, it's tricky. See, I'm lucky to have a place to sleep at all. If it weren't for the homeowners (who live upstairs, and are the parents of the kids I share space with) I'd be living in my car. So if I were to try and make an issue of it, I could easily be told to get out.

So I'm grateful to have a place to come home to every night. Just needed to vent a little frustration.

I'm so sorry, Who, that you're subjected to their rude and selfish behavior. You're doing the right thing by venting here to people who care about you (and thus makes up a little for the rapscallions you're forced to share space with). We're grateful you have that space to go home to every night, too.

Grr, that is very annoying. Do you have space to keep your pots and pans in your room?

I'm glad you have a place to stay and wish you weren't somewhat held hostage by circumstances that are less than ideal such as rude selfish roomies and a fear of retaliation if you request they perform the basic niceties.

They are used to their parents cleaning up after them. So, they may see you as a parent surrogate for the 'cleaning' part of living there.

****Pulls on ass-kicking boots and teacher scold eyes****...Where are they? Let me at 'em....They'll be washing YOUR dishes for you when I'm done!!

Seriously - hugs or a punching bag -- whichever you need, I'm sending your way. Thoughtless people are very wearing when you have to deal with them day in and day out.

Are these "kids" messy all around or just in the kitchen? If, just in the kitchen, why not suggest that you assume the kitchen as your cleaning responsibility & they take care of the rest of the common areas of the house? Do their parents also keep a messy kitchen?

I don't think they are into cleaning, just smoking 🚬 dope, playing video games and eating Who's food or using her possessions.

Do not friend me on Facebook when we ain't spoke in 20 years just to PM me and ask if I know where you can get weed. <77> damn. I'm pissed off.

Yes, I have someone, no, I'm not connecting you. I wouldn't connect people I like better because I'm not going to jail for your butt. Get your own weed.

The friend could just move to CO or WA. We (WA) can just get our weed at the corner store. I live in a town of about 85,000, and there may be more pot stores than Starbucks, and that is really saying something in this coffee drinking state. Let me think - we have three, maybe four Starbucks within one mile of our house. And probably 5-6 pot stores in the same radius. Life is good. Or life is stoned. Or life is buzzed. Oh, and we can pick ripe blackberries for free right now along the routes to all of the above.

I have only had my new credit card for a month and they keep freezing my account. The first time I was only trying to set up my account. Next happened while trying to activate my card. Then I tried to reload a Timmy card - but they block ALL cardholders from this unless it's from in store. Finally, today....I'm trying to set up their (much bugged about) app.

Holy snotboogers!

Thank heavens I called them before I went out of province to visit my son! They told me they would have blocked that too.

Wow! I have a perfect credit rating, have never missed paying a bill etc

I seriously regret getting this stupid card

Credit card companies are on high alert right now. ANYTHING outside of very normal use patterns is frozen unless you call. I have had TONS of customers with problems.

My gripe for the day: People that think that full time employees of nonprofits should not get paid. Because they are "nonprofits."

And of course, only wealthy people should work for nonprofits.

Some odd person on Facebook, who started bashing our local Meals on Wheels because they pay their Executive Director. And it's a pittance of a salary too.

My oldest DD worked for Bread for the World in DC.
They had to work hard for funding and once the Republicans gained control, they withdrew all funding.

One Congress man makes five times more than anyone in that nonprofit.
They only people they don’t mind paying is themselves and the corporations that own them.
