Happy Holidailies – Dec. 8, 2022

No prompt. The plan for writing today has gone out of the window.

In the last 48 hours, a toilet has broken beyond my ability to fix it, I scheduled a plumber, my niece has run a fever, got dinner for my sister and my niece, and I’ve been in an online and in car search for Children’s Tylenol. No luck, because of a local shortage, but I found some children’s ibuprofen.

There was one funny thing today. I answered a call from a number I didn’t recognize because I was expecting someone to call. Instead, I got a person who didn’t know my name, claimed to be ‘from your TV provider’ (his words exactly) and that ‘my box was invalid and I’d lose my channels.’ I don’t think he expected my answer to be a bright, “Great! I’ll cancel my service. That will save me a lot of money. Thanks for letting me know!” I hung up before he could respond.

I need to get a better class of phone scammer.

And thanks to John S. For pointing out a technical problem with my blog accepting. I think it’s fixed for now. Now I have to figure out the pesky GDPR plug-in..

  1. One of my goals in life is to build up my improv skills so I can keep scammers on the phone longer. So far my record is just over a minute, but there’s a lot of room for improvement.

  2. Oh I get those scam calls all the time!! I had one who would call just to see how I was doing. I’d rattle on about having 37 cats and too many kids and one cat died and how was I to live with only 36 cats. It was quite funny at the time. I hope your niece feels better and your plumbing gets fixed!
