my new face.
Here I am again.....Picking up the "rant" torch from my brother......For the last week and a half, I have been chatting with a seemingly "nice" guy on line, hey, talk isn't the worst thing out there. I have become very fond of some of my readers. I feel very close to a few of you. Well a journey starts with a single step, right? So here I was, happily tooling along with my life, and WHAM! I get hit with another scammer..... Well, thanks to experiences past, ol' Lynchie, (and to you, my dear Henry, for my nickname), I am not such a pushover anymore. As IF I needed a refresher course on ON- LINE SCAMS...... Here I was, happily tooling along with my life, and get this seemingly dreamy guy to chat with. All went well for about 4 days. Then the alarms in my brain started buzzing. Girls, or guys if you are reading this, Nobody falls in love with anybody in 3 or 4 days...... It is like, maybe, or lust, probably, but not "till death do us part" love!!!! That takes time to build. It has to grow, be nurtured, and trust has to be earned. I have been in such a relationship. I know.. This new fellow, threw the "L" word around really quickly. When all the flowery phrases didn't work, because you are talking to someone not born last night, remember, he got nasty. For crying out loud, SCAMMER PEOPLE, at least change your script a little between scams!!!!! It is almost word for word!!! Well, thanks to a very dear past boyfriend, I have a very keen sense when something isn't right. I knew exactly where the talk was gong. Hell, I could have even joined in on the chorus! I knew exactly where to insert, "send me $500 to get this package to you for our future" went!!!! Can you imagine that! And, of course, when these guys get outed, they tend to get hostile. I guess because if you don't get hooked, they have lost precious time they could have been working on someone else more gullible. Well I have been around 4 legged animals all my life, and I am no Spring Chicken, so I will tell you one thing. Animals give us pure love. When you look in their eyes, there is no deceit. They do not lie, cheat or have ill intent. At least not our pets. If my dog stole off the kitchen table, I can see it on his face, immediately. And the mess beneath him on the floor doesn't help either. But animals give unconditional love. without requiring anything but the same in return. And the occasional treat, back scratch, or petting. Snuggle with your pet on the bed in the morning, (cat people), or play fetch in the yard with a dog, You know exactly what you have!!! True Love.. So here's to you, my dear Butchie....and my new face. At least now they can say,"Boy, Kathy is a real dog!" and it will mean something.
