If you wanna scam me, can't you at least speak my language?

Posted By on Tue, May 1, 2012 at 7:54 PM

Still stalking the streets of the community which would cure anyone's desire to live in Small Town America, 1950s edition, but now Tracy and I once again are traveling the Magic Highways of the Internet. As such, I am always happy to make new friends who contact me via email.

A wonderful email came yesterday from some folks masquerading as the Cox tech support team, featuring some spectacularly misspelled words. Yet again, these rascals have asked for my password. I actually wrote them a reply, suggesting that they master the English language.

Yes, some whoppers get by me - especially in yesterday's caffeine driven blog - but I'm not trying to empty your wallet or invade your computer.

Yes, I often listen to the TV without watching it, thank you very much

Yeah, I should have written NPR instead of PBS in my blog yesterday.

Sue me. Or better yet, make a pelage in my name.
