From Walter: 
Dear Webby,
thanks for publishing the 'Find A Human' in your letter.
I had a problem with Comcast about unauthorized charges 
and could get nowhere with half a dozen people at Comcast 
with whom I spoke.

I then sent an email to the email address given in 'Find a Human' 
and had a friendly, helpful individual call me a day later and resolved 
the matter to my satisfaction.
Walter


Have FUN!

One evening during a poker game, a man was bragging to his friends about how his sister disguised herself as a man and was able to join the Navy, without having to go onto.the waiting list for women. "But, wait a minute," said one listener. "Your sister will have to dress with the boys and shower with them, too. Won't she?" "Sure," replied the man. "Well, won't they find out?" asked another poker player. The first man shrugged his shoulders and replied, "Sure. But who is gonna tell?"

Thanks to Orilla for this: As the bus pulled away, I realized I had left my purse under the seat. Later, when I called the company I was quite relieved that somebody had given the purse to the driver. When I went to pick it up, several off-duty bus drivers surrounded me. One man handed me my purse, two typewritten pages and a box containing the contents of my purse. "We're required to inventory lost wallets and purses," he explained. "I think you'll find everything there." As I started to put my belongings back into the purse, the man continued, "I hope you don't mind if we watch. Even though we all tried, none of us could fit everything into your purse and we'd like to see just how you do it."

Thanks to Sir Squirrel for alerting me to this Bonehead! An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Dallas Naljahih, 18, in Orem, Utah Burglar forgot his USB hard drive An 18-year-old Utah man was arrested on suspicion of burglary after police say he left his homework at the crime scene. Police in Orem say they tracked a USB drive found at the burglarized home to Dallas Naljahih. They say the computer hard drive contained his homework and was in a backpack abandoned in the backyard. A 75-year-old man and his wife reported their home had been burglarized early Saturday. The husband says he was woken up by a light in his office, and found a man who was looking through a desk. The suspect punched the man and fled on foot. Police say that Naljahih was found asleep at his house along with evidence connecting him with the burglary. The backpack also contained narcotics paraphenalia. More charges may be pending, for example assaulting a senior.
Tech Support Pits: From: Carl Re: PayPal related scams Dear Webby, I have read your column for years and appreciate all you do. I can't imagine the internet without you. I especially appreciated the article today about pay pal. I've used it for years on ebay and such. I might advise you to mention to your reader base though that pay pal is one of the spammers biggest targets (I'm sure you already know this). Hardly a day or week goes by that I do not receive a email from a really good look-a-like site advising me to log onto my pay pal account for some important information or such. It is very deceiving and worthy of mention..... Good day and good health to you my friend.... Carl Dear Carl I guess with MailWasher I lead a very sheltered life and don't see the crap and crud you poor people in the jungle are exposed to. With MailWasher you see the underlying actual links, and soon see the similarities in all that crap. As soon as you see any similarity or anything, that they have in common, you make a filter. From that moment on you just see that crap as part of the pie chart, that shows you what percentage of the nuked spam got nailed by which of your filters. Good for a gleeful grin, but nothing to worry about. Just like with spam about fake Rolaids watches or home-made Vagira with Vitamin K or whatever, you can set MailWasher to nuke all that stuff right on the server. Why download it, if you don't want to see it anyway? The first time making a filter is a bit scary, but what isn't scary the first time? After that, like most actions, that are initially a bit scary, it turns into fun and games, because it is really easy, and the effects are immediately noticeable. Dig the coins out of the couch and get MailWasher! Have FUN! DearWebby

I noticed the neighbor down the street was home every day, so after a few weeks I asked him what was going on. He replied, "I left my job because of illness and fatigue." A few weeks later, his wife gave me the real truth of what happened . . . Turns out my neighbor's boss got sick and tired of him.
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Spray Inside of Tin Foil When Baking Before you cover your baking items with foil, spray the side of the foil that touches the food with non-stick cooking spray. No more sticking to the foil and no more ruining your pretty dish. By cschatz from Springville, AL The oil used in those grossly overpriced non-stick cooking sprays is not really healthy at all. You can accomplish the same by using an old Windex or similar trigger action spray bottle filled with some healthy olive oil. You will be surprised how long a refill lasts! And instead of buying a ridiculously expensive spray can, you just pour a few ounces of healthy olive oil into the spraybottle. Have FUN!

Golfer: "I've played so poorly all day; I think I'm going to go drown myself in that lake." Caddy: "I doubt you could keep your head down that long." Golfer: "I'd move heaven and earth to be able to break 100 on this course." Caddy: "Try heaven. You've already moved most of the earth." Golfer: "Well, I have never played this badly before!" Caddy: "I didn't realize you had played before, sir." Golfer: "Caddy, do you think my game is improving?" Caddy: "Oh yes, sir! You miss the ball much closer than you used to." Golfer: "Please stop checking your watch all the time, caddy. It's distracting!" Caddy: "This isn't a watch, sir, it's a compass!" Golfer: "Caddy, do you think it is a sin to play golf on Sunday?" Caddy: "The way you play, sir, it's a sin any day of the week!" Golfer: "That can't be my ball, caddy. It looks far too old." Caddy: "Your ball has been beat up and aropund for a long time, sir." Golfer: "Do you think I can get there with a 5 iron?" Caddy: "Eventually."

Olga and Cherie had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me..... I know we've been friends for a long time..... but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is." Cherie glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?"
