What good news to come home to

Post by Nyarlathotep »

Turns out that I am the long lost heir to estates in London and Lanarkshire. Isn't that awesome?

Your contact was submitted to our information department from Norwegian Embassy London. It is very possible that you are related to our deceased client. We do have your name listed in his last Will. We also notify that we are legal custodians of his funds and estates in London and Lanarkshire - Glasgow.

We have no evidence of any other benefactor from your family, hence we have contacted you to help secure the claims. If this is not done in a few weeks, we shall relinquish the custodianship to British Government.

Details of funds and estates will be disclosed if you stand as beneficiary.

Thank you.

Isn't the idea of a London fruit sorta redundant?

Just got an Urgent pre-recorded phone message to come to a sales pitch in order to lower the rates on my mortgage.

I haven't had a mortgage for a while.

Also got a repeat of a periodically repeating pre-recorded message claiming to be from my credit card company, saying that they could lower the rates on my credit card....to higher than my current rate. I never run a balance, anyhow.

And a good-old spam in my inbox from Softlayer.Com doing business as Zingari Promotions, and using an IP address registered as Fanbridge.com, 174.37.97.239. These things arrive with regularity, despite my attempts to get them to stop--which they have acknowledged.

Yeah, I keep getting the credit card "you can reduce the interest rate on your credit card balance" calls. But they don't know which card, or what the balance is (um, zero?).

Yeah, but have either of you ever been placed on the "List of Distinguished Women" or gotten multiple offers to have a FUCKBUDDY?

Alas, that I haven't. Only mail-order Russian brides sending me tiny naked self-pics, every 6 months or so.

I get the "Hot women in [your town] want to meet you" accompanied by photos.

There's maybe twenty-five people in my "town"; none look like the women in these ads.

There, there. They're there. They just stay indoors. And they've aged a bit since the photo was taken. And they've put on a bit of weight. And there's an ant trail going over their left thigh.

Not to mention lately the proportions are looking a bit photoshopped on those ads. Approaching uncanny valley territory.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Get De_Bunk to act as your legal representative. I think he's the closest thing to a Londoner we have.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
