NF.Com Get Together

Postby Blue&White » Thu Sep 14, 2017 10:24 am

Anyone want to get together to watch Iowa? I can reach out to Ro. And, dad said previously he'd call in his credit card and pick up the tab for us.

Who's in? I'm thinking another KoP location. We can do the same place as last time.

Funny dad mentioned paypal. We just discovered this week that my youngest had hacked my wife's paypal account several months ago and has been quietly downloading games and stuff on his gaming laptop. A little here, a little there - all small numbers that we didn't notice. We look at our statements but we don't scour them like we probably should (a practice that has changed).

Last month he got greedy and downloaded some game that cost $599 and a bunch of other things. Kid ran up close to $1,000 in charges. That got my attention quickly. Yes, he's still alive, but it was touch and go there for a while. I very nearly killed him on Monday.

Back in the late 90's, when this whole personal computing and internet fad started taking hold, my mom jumped in. She had AOL Mail and all that. After about 3 months she told me that the internet was going to nickel and dime us all to death.

Fast forward to about 10 years ago. My son was in 10th grade and had a cell phone. I don't know if smart phones were readily available yet, so this was just a flip phone. I knew he was using the text feature a bit, so I called my carrier to check on my plan. The lady on the other end said that I might want to sign up for the unlimited plan because the one line had over 4000 texts and it was only half way in the cycle. That bill would have been over a grand if I hadn't switched then and there.

My nephew has Downs Syndrome but is a very capable and curious young man. During a visit to my house, the nephew...then a pubescent teenager.....made himself at home in the TV room whole the rest of us were outside enjoying a family get-together. Unbeknownst to us, said nephew was busying himself by ordering porno movies via Verizon. I only discovered this when reviewing the bill a few weeks later....a bill that was a hundred dollars and change more than expected. A little investigation revealed that said nephew had ordered several porn movies, watching only a few minutes of each one before ordering another. When I approached my brother, delicately, on the matter....he just shook his head and said "oh great, he's at it again". Verizon accepted my story and removed the charges.

I think I may be able to come. I'll know for sure in the next day or so. Fox and Hound again? Also, if I can come is it ok to bring my son, a budding rabid Nittany Lions fan?

I also think we need to declare a restaurant wide white out. 8-)

Not likely for me. Mrs. Mad broke her leg and had surgery last week. She has to stay off the leg for three months....THREE $#@&#&ING MONTHS! I'm her nursemaid, and I'm already starting to come apart at the seams.....cooking, shopping, cleaning house, doing laundry. Hells bells....I did the ironing last night. It's a flippin' nightmare. Come to think of it, I'll need a break when the 23rd roles around. I'm a maybe.
