I Get It....I Just Don't Understand.

I am completely aware of the changes going on.  Not only in the world, but in me.  We are overwhelmed with technology.  Thrown at us from every direction.  I am an old-school technology whore but I think I'm ready for rehab.  We are plugged in all the time to the computer/cell phone/internet whatever.  When most of us were children, we had no idea these things would be developed in our lives.  Now we feel behind when we don't have the newest gadget.    Lately with the updates in apps for your phone for the most popular social network sites.   (Social Network... Isn't that the most peculiar term?  We're suppose to be social, but what it's done is reduced that activity.)  I complained earlier this week on how I know to much about individuals.  I know they "LIKE RICE".. I know where their kids are.  I know they're not at their house all weekend.  It seems odd to me that we're announcing that on the internet.  TO THE WORLD!!!  I can guess what political party you're affiliated by your "LIKES" and post.  Even if you don't announce it to the world, you have.

I think I'm overstimulated by everything.  

Now with that in mind, I also understand the changes in me.  I'm at that age where females have a complete transformation.  Unfortunately I'm short tempered, but  I try to hide it.  I become frustrated because I expect to much from people.  I know I set myself up for disappointment.  So I'm working on not expecting anything from anyone.  That's rather difficult when my lowest expectation is that a person have some form of common sense and I realize I even set that expectation to high.

Tonight I will make Mexican. I'm weird and I like to do theme things.  So I am making tacos and burritos.  Simple food.  The men folk won't eat too odd of meals.  I planned the meal and I'll cook it.  I'll make too much because I think I need to make enough for an army.  I've never actually fed an Army, but I bet I could feed some of them.  I never get the reaction I expect, so I am disappointed in the reaction I get.  The fact I'm not good at cooking but attempt to do something with a theme is a stretch for me.  Then to not feel appreciated is disheartening.

This subject is very disconnected.  That's how my brain works now.  I get why people do what they do, I just don't understand.

The "I Told You So" Dance.

Last week was an incredibly busy week at my office.  I took a call from an older woman on Monday who was planning on investing in a company.  Now I'd made her wait over the previous weekend before she invested because I didn't like the way it sounded.  Now she was new to our organization and immediately wanted to send her hard-earned money to a foreign country.  I spoke with her and she was convinced that everything was legit and I was wrong!  So she sent her money to Australia.  Same day, she wanted to send more money.  I was unaware of this request at first, but became aware by staff a little while later, but I'd started to do research and still wasn't comfortable. So a decision was made and I prohibited her sending a large sum to Czech..

In the meantime, I used channels available to me to broadcast this company out to other organizations and see if anyone else had heard any information on this group. I wasn't comfortable with their process.  I wasn't comfortable with what they were asking individuals to do.  I just had that gut feeling that something just wasn't right.  Always go with that feeling, by the way!  I received some information back, but what I learned is that others that are in my position were experiencing the exact same scenario we were.  Clients wanting to invest large sums of money for high yield investment (HYIP) that they had received or been invited from friends, relatives and church members.   = PONZI

On Tuesday this woman was HOT with me.  I had prevented her from investing in an organization that was "GODLY" and that she was absolutely sure was doing good. Plus, I'd also prevented her from making what she thought was an insane return on her investment.
In the mean time, 2 other clients had also requested transmission of their fund to Czech in a similar manner as Client #1.  I prohibited their request too.  Can you see how popular I became by Wednesday?  By Wednesday I was the epitome of evil.  Usually it takes longer than 3 days into the week to be an evil bitch.

On Friday I received documentation from a colleague in another state in reference to this "GODLY" investment company.  The Securities Exchanges had placed a Cease and Desist order on this organization in the colleagues state.  That's good news.  Except they operate off-shore.  But it's a start. The better news is that Client #1  lives in that state the Cease and Desist order was issued.  I'm hoping it made the paper.

And in the mean time... Music Maestro -  I told ya so, I told ya so,.... I tooold .. ya ..., told... ya....told.. ya... told... ya.... Told Ya So.

Monday  again, let the games begin.

SHUTDOWN??? Shut Up!!!

Originally when I started this blog I had decided that I would write about the entertainment value of the human being. As of late I haven't actually stumbled on anything so entertaining to actually write about, but I think now I have.  I'll refer to it as SHUTDOWN??  Shutup!!!.

I am not a 'newsy' person like some of my friends and associates. In fact, I find news depressing.  It comes from having a loved one deployed in areas where they were being shot at and CNN covering it "LIVE".  So for the most part I do not really watch the news.  I catch glimpses of it on television and I will turn in to the Daily Show, but since I find it depressing, I avoid it.

So recently the hype has focused on the Government Shutdown.  At midnight tonight the government will do a partial shutdown.  The hype is that all military personnel will be paid by IOU.  I actually find that humorous and  yet sad.  Will our Congressmen and Senator's also receive IOUs? 

How strange, I started this part - who knows when.  Now March 1, 2013 had rolled around and we're all overwhelmed by a new word.  "Sequestration".  It's not a word I'd heard before February.  It's not a word I use on a daily basis, but I was surprised to suddenly hear individuals who were attempting intelligence to utilize the word 'sequestration" in references to other things.   So I Googled It.


The action of taking legal possession of assets until a debt has been paid or other claims have been met.  - REPO!!!

The government is now in the Repo Business.  Imagine if they'd only budgeted better?
What I'm curious about is how someone can REPO their own possessions? 

Chime in if you wish.
