There is all sorts of scams involving old people and most aren't even illegal since most of the time they get convinced to pay on their own will... Newest scam round here is to organize a meet up, fill a bus with old people, drive em far out, sell them crap at abhorrent prices. Many of them cant say no because to them it's better than staying home alone...

There isn't much good advice since this is a grey zone. But if you want to hinder them you need to engage with them... For example follow your grandparents to one of those meeting then call the cops so they can come make sure they're licensed to organize a selling event or some other technicality... Depends on the scam really but these people seldom have their ducks in a row, and while you might get into heated arguments, generally they're not the violent criminal type, just con-artists... be careful though

How's that possible? I mean, really cops don't do anything? It's the IRS they are impersonating, dunno, that sounds like some serious crap.

My own sad, my wife scared me shitless and my response was really subpar, my own defense is that we, I'm at least, are/am to fucking sensitive because the attempt to break in of the other night, also doing this in the mid of a blackout. I lost my temper and yelled a her, she's not happy. Electricity came back buy she's still mad.

It falls under the FCC, which is notoriously corrupt. The phone companies make a lot of money off scam phone calls, especially if they buy services to hide their identities. Occasionally someone will get caught, but it doesn't ever have much effect.

The relics were safe but the building has basically been gutted.

This would certainly be nice, if true. Would make the entirely tasteless joke I vomited forth earlier be slightly less horrible.


Also, the heck? I thought you couldn't directly link images with https urls here?

You can't use https for avatar images, but I guess they work fine for normal image links.

I have an urge to keep a diary, but typing it isn't satisfying and my handwriting sucks too much.

There's a lot of angsty and edgy stuff behind this that would be too embarrassing to write out.

This would be more fit for the rage thread but: some very insulting things happened in the last 48 hours and I plan to depart this place as soon as I can agree a departure date

I recently became a objectivist, I am reasonably certain that means all my opinions are now universal fact.
Everyone sucks at everything. Until they don't. Not sucking is a product of time invested.

You're still in Ireland, right? You're sure it's not just the local dialect?

Oh, I think "very insulting" implies a level of offence greater than mere dialect.

It's the Irish though.

Whilst I'm normally more than happy to bash the Irish, the stereotypical idea that they're a rough-and-ready-foul-mouthed-yet-somehow-unaware-of-it race is simply untrue. Their diction is, as it is for everyone, primarily offensive when it is meant to be.

Not that Chair even mentioned diction, and only specified that 'things happened.'

I'd assume relating to his job, though I don't know.
