I’m rich or maybe not?

I have been receiving emails the past couple of days, okay actually the last week too about how much money some nice person wants to give me….. I mean WOW…. A billion dollars is a lot of money and it could be mine if I just send them my bank account info and $7,000.00 …. I guess that is a small price to pay for sooooo much money, but why me??? I don’t know those folks and out of nowhere I am getting emails offering me that kind of cash….

Somehow I don’t see it being an honest offer, but then there are the other emails offering me ways to spend my money….. Do they know that I was offered a billion dollars??? And besides that I could get even richer if I watch a video about how a grandmother became a millionaire overnight….. Now that is something….. Go to sleep wake-up the next morning and “Bingo” rich!!! I bet the elderly women won the money playing bingo, but they don’t want to tell me…… Bingo parlor here I come!!!

To be really honest, I am not a bingo playing person, so I guess I will have to watch another video on how to make a fortune, and then spend it on some great offers that is sent to me……..

Then there was an email that I received yesterday in the subject line they called me a “ jerk”… now that person who wrote that really needs to think and learn how to write, because if I wrote to people and friends with the word “ Jerk” in the subject line….. I know for sure they would not be too happy and would say “Good-bye friendship”. I feel some folks are just plain cheeky and I think they are “jerks” too!

What confused me was the email saying that they were trying to phone me and that I didn’t answer my phone and all I had to do was give them my phone number and they would call me back….. But in the subject line was “we tried to call you and you didn’t answer”….. Somehow a bit contradictory …. I mean really if you know me you know my phone number and that is the point…. I don’t think they know me and are trying to trick me like all the others with the offers of money and so forth.

But reading can be fun…. My question from April this year can be answered now….. I don’t even remember asking a question in an email; but then again my brain isn’t that young anymore and maybe I did ask…. I didn’t recognize the senders name so I guess I never asked anything in April that was important and if it takes so long to answer my question then it wasn’t that important, so forget it!! Press delete…..

And what is so great is the names of the people who send those emails… it is beyond me though; sometimes I think they get their wires crossed themselves… I got 6 emails from the same person, but in different countries.

But my order has been fulfilled and all I have to do is send the money and sooner or more like never I will get my goods that I have never ordered……. Their imagination seems to be getting somewhat limited here.

Read on but don’t click on those wonderful and often to good to be true nonsense…

Oh no …My battery is low!!!

Yes, it is so that my battery is low and now that little icon on my Smartphone is glowing red , and telling me that I will be cut-off from the world any minute now… I could scream; but that won’t help me!
None of my friends or so called friends can reach me or I cannot check what is going on, on all the social networks that I need to be connected with…. A life without conductivity, and this all because my battery has no more charge in it!!!

I guess those are the perils of the modern world and its electrical devices.

Now what?? … No problem, I will turn on my tablet computer that I have with me. Just turn it on and “Bingo” I am connected to the world. Thank goodness I buy all these devices or my life would be” un-plugged” from the world, and that I do not want!!!
Just imagine gals there are the latest fashions being posted somewhere and your battery is low… That would just throw my life into a tizzy or for those of you guys who are fans of cars or such… the same no conductivity or battery then you are out and old fashioned as if you were born in the 18th century!

No Smartphone with a charged battery is like starting your day without a healthy breakfast. Now who would want to leave the house with that thought in mind??? Not me honey!!

But, back to the battery problem… I thought ok, go to a café buy a coffee and use one of their electrical sockets to charge up my battery. A really great idea or so I thought. There are hundreds of cafes around but I chose the one I always go to. Open the door and walk in and before my eyes the whole city must have been there having the same problem I was having… My battery needs charging
.
Ok, it isn’t such a problem. The weather is ok and so I can walk another block to the next café. Again the same problem but this time people were standing in line to sit down… What is the world coming to I ask??? I will not give-up and think “now where should I go?” NO, problem, there is a nice quiet place 3 blocks from here. I hope it doesn’t rain, because the sky is turning a bit overcast.

Now as I walk along my tablet signals me that its battery is low too and its icon is glowing red as a tomato…. Great !!! I do feel a slight panic attack coming on with the thought of absolutely no more connection to the outer world now… Why me; do all these electrical devices hate me?? Am I alone with this problem or are there other people in the world that experiences this too???

I made it now to the café sure there are plenty of place to sit but all the ones with electrical sockets are taken. I am not going to give up now that socket is only a table away. I sit down and order a coffee but I have sat at a table where I can spring right over to the table next to me once the guy is finished and leaves. I think he knows what I want and so he is lingering a bit longer there over his coffee to make me suffer. His look on his face says “I know that you want to charge your Smartphone”…. I just smile at him and hope that my smile can persuade him to leave quicker or let me sit at his table. No luck with either thought!!

So, I decide to take the old fashioned newspaper in my hand and start reading it. I must say it was enjoyable. The feeling of having that paper in my hand reading all those articles and ads; It was like rediscovering life again and relaxing – it was just to sit back and read and get lost in the pages of time!

I never got to recharge my battery because I was too busy reading a paper newspaper, but I can say I really enjoyed it and can recommend doing it.

So next time your battery is low; no worries a newspaper can be a great thing to rediscover!

I thank all those newspaper people out there who printout the paper edition of the newspaper… You have gained a new reader… ME!!
