The majority of homeless people are mentally ill.

Even if they are magically making piles of cash they are not taking it home and stuffing it under a mattress, they are spending it on drugs and alcohol to make the voices shut up for a while. Not one of them is thinking "This sure beats working".

Haha. You really don't see anything wrong about a 14 week trip to Turkey including plane tickets, tuition, and lodging costing only ~$2000?

Maybe I should of been more descriptive and included the fact that the dude advertising this poo poo does not advertise with any other study abroad programs, it's always the same lone dude advertising, there's little/no literature available, and everything is written out in red ink on a small portable white board. Also, $1975 or whatever it is is always underlined with alternating green, black, and red marker ink.

Sounds legit.

I SUSPECT he is referring to the bit where you say "No-one ever, even the dumbest retard ever, ever wants to go to Turkey. Ever."

My brand new staff member (night shift) gave me the best present ever.

504: Hello new worker, how was the night shift? Completely eventless and no problems at all, just like it always is?
New Guy: Yes, except the computer caught a virus, but its ok, I called the number and fixed it
504: A virus? how odd, what did IT say?
New Guy: Oh I didn't call them, I called the number in the box that popped up 0900 something.
504: (Stomach dropping) What did the "technician" tell you to do?
New Guy: He got me to go to a google page and download a file to fix it.


504: Hello IT? I'm afraid my new staff member has downloaded and installed a remote access program to the hospitals network. Also I cant make the firewall do anything.

Good times.

My go-to is to ask if whatever scam they're pushing is certified by BOFA.

I always just handed the phone to one of my two year old daughters, they were in the never shuts up loves the phone stage.

Thank you for your service, I am proud to offer you a 10 year old Camaro with nothing down and only 30% interest. Because we love America.

and because you accidentally put 15k instead of 10k on the loan form you're going to give me the 5k difference in cash?!

BARGAIN!

When I worked in a psychiatric hospital I became the guy that explained to patients why finance, "deals" and no interest wasn't a good thing, it was always a full scale seminar making them understand that the people trying to sell them things were not doing it to help them out.

On the plus side I got a good education on finding the hidden costs and translating the carefully written small print.

How does that work?

Small purchase, not picked up, buy huge?

Why take the risk the small purchase will be noticed?

Can you share any more details around this? How common is it.. that is how commonly do people fall for it?

Ahem...

Itís real common on porn chat sites to see ďIím a hot girl that wants to watch you whack itĒ messages. Itís embarrassing how offen people fall for it.

My father is law is deeply religious(Muslim) and always welcoming to the jw's when they come around.

Imagine the worst Starwars nerd you know who had Mark Hamil to himself for an hour and was truly deeply and sincerely interested in the most minor points of Star wars.

They don't come around much anymore.
