Obviously my Meijer store main frame computer system reads my receipts and knows what I buy. Then they mail me these coupons. Is this creepy? Do I feel like Big Brother or Vladimir is spying on me? The first time it happened, I kinda did, but being the least paranoid person you know, now I find it wonderful. Who cares if "they" know what groceries I buy. Just send me those coupons for FREE stuff and cash-offs.
My next door neighbor Tammie--remember her? She went from Catholic, to Seventh-Day Adventist, to Wiccan to Susie Super Christian--remember her?
Well, she likes to post those vague statues on Face Book--the kind that drive me crazy. "I just wish I could wave a magic wand and make it all better."
No explanation. People commented, "Are you all right?" "What's going on?" "I'm worried about you." Which is just what these 'vague status posters" want.
She didn't reply to any of the comments---which of course leaves her friend's in a worried condition so they call her and get the information.
I love how people use FB to elicit sympathy in weird ways. NOT!
I did not comment on her post. I did not private message her. I did not call her.
Wednesday morning when I woke up and walked in the computer room, I saw an enormous County sheriff SUV pull into her drive. The cop went into her house. After about 20 minutes, he came out and drove away. She came out and also drove away.
About half an hour later, her husband--the Prince of Wiccan's drove in. He got out of his car and staggered into the house. I figured he had been in the drunk tank during the night and she had to bail him out.
Then yesterday evening, I got a private message from her asking, "Were the cops at my house today?"
I replied that I had been gone from 11:30 to 3:00, so I didn't know.
She leaves for work at 10:30 at night and shortly after she left, husband took off in his car.
This morning, when I opened Face Book, there was another status post from her. "Pray for me! I have had the police take my husband to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation."
Nothing like telling the world that your husband is a nut case!
I saw her drive away this morning around 9:15.
Who knows what is going on? I'm sure she will post all about it.
Personally, all the neighbors feel they both should have had a psych eval years ago.
I much preferred living out in the country, with my nearest neighbor 1/4 mile away and I had no idea what was going or not going on in their lives. I lived in my own Pollyanna world and had no idea that people like Dar and Tammie and her hubs even existed!
Pearl was home yesterday and I did get down to see her. She came home to visit her cat and get some more clothes around 7:00, but had to be back at the rehab place by 9:00. So far, she has had NO physical therapy. I guess Merle and the kids had a conference with the director at the rehab place. I understand there was a bit of yelling from her kids---demanding to know the plan.
Over and out.................
