I'm Learning Like My Hair Is On Fire

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Mountain Partners

    I am learning so much about the internet.  Today I received an email forward from a friend warning me not to stop the car if I see a baby car seat with a bloody blanket on it beside  the road.  The article went on to say that this was a common ploy that crooks use to get ladies to stop on a rural highway. Then the robbers attack the people that were foolish enough to stop and get out of their cars.  It seemed like good advice to me so I forwarded on to my daughter in Wisconsin.  She replied that this was an urban myth.  I should check it out on snopes.com .  I had never heard of snopes. com .  While I was on snopes, I checked out dial 112.  The same article said that if 911 does not work 112 will. 

   There you go. I am getting smarter every day.  I learned about snopes and 112 today.

   What have you learned today?

I have learned that if 911 does not work then 112 will. I had never heard of that before. By spreading this knowledge, you learn it better yourself. Thank you for sharing.

Umm What if snopes is ran by the same crooks and they tell you it is a myth so will stop then. It is good to not trust anything or anyone.

   Joyce  I never thought about snopes being ran by crooks.  I did think it was strange that they ask for my birthday and social security number before they answered my question.
