My Youngest Speaks Again (Humor) - 08/25/11 09:36 AM
My wife and I were at a doctor's appointment and her Mother (NeNe, who is in her 60s) and my wife's brother (Uncle who is almost 20) were watching our kids. The following conversation took place and only the names have been omitted to protect the innocent, zinged and embarrassed.
Uncle: Do you know how old I will be on my next birthday? My Youngest (8 yrs old): hmmmmmmm.......You will be 20 Uncle: Right! Youngest: Wow, you are OLD! NeNe: Hahahahahahahahhaa Youngest: What are you laughing at? You're like 80! (10 comments)
I have had several questions about how this works, so here is my explanation:
They use a cashier’s check or money order that is bogus (either on a real bank but a fake account or a real bank and a real account, but not an account they own. This allows the local bank to verify the bank and account number and it is only when the account holder protests that the problem arises.). The EM is deposited and the Buyer does an immediate inspection and finds something they don’t like. They request an immediate refund of the EM, (5 comments)
Chan Lee replaces Ken Akira - 08/18/11 09:14 AM
Just a quick notification to all agents. The Ken Akira scam has been replaced with Chan Lee. The email is exactly the same as the Ken Akira scam, except for the name is now Chan Lee. The scam artist can't even get their name right. It is Chan Lee in the body, but signed Chung Lee. This "lead" was sent to every agent in my office, but I get a copy of all leads, so I was able to warn my associates. (8 comments)

Can Cold Water Clean Dishes?This is for all the germ conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean. John went to visit his 90 year old grandfatherin a very secluded, rural area of Saskatchewan. After spending a great evening chatting the night away,the next morning John's grandfather preparedbreakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate,and questioned his grandfather asking, 'Are these plates clean?' His grandfather replied, 'They're as clean as cold water can get em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!' For lunch the old man made hamburgers. (8 comments)
Went to do a BPO early this morning and I had to turn the AC off, since it was only 85 degrees outside. I Thought I was going to freeze to death with the AC cooling the truck to 70 degrees. It is like opening an oven door every time you step outside. (12 comments)
