What to do about phony invoices 



Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, December 17

Thank you, Nancy!


-20 C (-5 F) here.
Gullible Warming seems to be limited to near sources of 
hot air.
Ocean levels are dropping in California and in Alaska.
The NorthWest Passage is frozen solid, and polar bears are
migrating South.

Please resume farting around. 
-20 C (-5 F)is too cold for comfort.

Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by John Parsley, 62, Gonzales, Texas
Texan arrested after he drives his pickup into Alva, Oklahoma hotel lobby, on perpose. A Texas man accused of driving his pickup into the lobby of an Alva hotel is facing felony charges in the incident. John Parsley, 62, of Gonzales, Texas, faces two felony counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and one count of malicious injury to property over $1,000, according to oscn.net. Woods County District Attorney Chris Boring filed charges late Monday afternoon. According to an Alva Police Department incident report, Parsley drove his 2006 Sierra GMC into the lobby of Alva Comfort Inn and Suites on Thursday afternoon after asking for a refund on two transactions. According to the report, Parsley, was told the card he used initially was declined both times. “Parsley stated he had paid cash for the last two nights because his card was declined both nights,” according to the report. Alva Police Officer Wade Suffon reported he tried to explain to Parsley that he would go into the hotel to discuss the situation with management. “Parsley rolled his window down and looked at me as I was speaking to him trying to explain to him I was going to go inside to speak with the manager,” according to Suffon's report. “I observed Parsley reach up and place his vehicle in drive and accelerate rapidly, crashing into the hotel front entrance and into the lobby.” Parsley left the vehicle in the lobby and walked out with his hands up, according to the report. He was arrested and is being held in Woods County Jail.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Olga Re: Weird invoices Dear Webby, Lately I have reeceived all kinds of weird invoices from companies I have never dealt with, usually companies that I have never heard of before. They all want me to click on a link for details. Well, as you can probably tell from my seasoned looks, I have not fallen off the turnip wagon last night. So naturally I did not click on any link. My question is where did those benighted scammers get my email address, and how can I stop getting those phony invoices? Olga Dear Olga Most of those phony invoices are from Russia. If you use MailWasher, and you have not set it to send stuff like that to hell automatically, it would tell you something like blah, blah, blah Mr. Kenton Mendez Accounting Specialist| Bank of America, N.A., Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. invoice_14318911_scan.doc If mailwasher could laugh out loud, it would. First, the .ru (Russia) in the FROM filed knocks it out. I never get legitimate mail from Russia, so I won't let them waste my time. Then ....scan.doc in the BODY knocks it down to hell. I had to look in the Recycle Bin for that example. My MailWasher dumps those automatically, without showing them to me. Just make filters like those, and you will never see those phony invoice emails ever again. Are you getting the hint why I love mailWasher so much? Have FUN! DearWebby A salesman, tired of his job, gave it up to become a policeman. Several months later, a friend asked him how he liked his new role. "Well," he replied, "the pay is good and the hours aren't bad, but what I like best is that the customer is always wrong." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com 15-Minute Chicken Cacciatore A delicious meal cooked in a pressure cooker.

Silent Monks singing Hallelujah Chorus
____________________________________________________ Adam and Eve had an ideal marriage. He didn't have to hear about all the men she could have married, and she didn't have to hear about the way his mother cooked. ____________________________________________________ The Indians asked their Chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or not. Not really knowing the answer, the chief replied that the winter will be cold and that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared. Being a good leader, he then drove to town, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is this winter to be cold?" The man on the phone responded, "This winter is indeed going to be very cold." So the Chief went back to encourage his people to collect even more wood to be prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again, and asked again, "Is it going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes," the man replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter." The Chief went back to his people and ordered them to go out and bring back every scrap of wood they could find. Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service again. "Are you absolutely sure that this winter is going to be very cold?" "Absolutely" the man replies, "the Indians are collecting wood like crazy!" ____________________________________________________
