Watch out for the blue haired large black woman!!

Cause she's cashing bogus payroll checks in town. That was what I heard on the news this morning. It is hard to believe sometimes how ignorant people can be. She and her entourage of 2-3 athletic black guys are running around town. Don't I feel safe?

So many people want the easy way. They think the world owes them for whatever reason. When I was growing up and starting to work everyone went to work everyday. We gave our best to our employeer in exchange for a fair wage. I didn't really make a lot of money, minimun wage plus a nickel, but it was enough to pay for my gas, car and little things that teenagers want. All of my friends worked. We continued to work after graduation and into our adulthood. It's not that way anymore and I don't like it.

My son is a perfect example. He called me yesterday morning as I was rushing to get out of the house to get to my job in time because they depend on me to be there, and was whining about not having enough gas to get to the farm where he has been working. His auto insurance was due that day and blah blah blah. I just told him flat out that I couldn't help him. That we have helped him so much in the past and it was time for him to man-up and deal with it. Now mind you, he wasn't always this way. He used to work 2 jobs in fact. He was one of the teens that was different. He worked and worked hard. He put out 150% every day he went to work. I don't get it. I don't know what happened. I have struggled with this for a number of years and have yet to figure it out. Except when I hear crap like what I heard on the news this morning. People want the easy way.

I just don't get it.

What never ceases to amaze me is the effort that these criminals will put in to the scamms!If they put even half the thought and energy into honest work ...

No, I don't get it either. My kids are still a bit young, but we try to teach them the importance of responsibility and doing your best, etc., instead of expecting things to be handed to you. The problem is, most kids these days have things just handed to them, so it gets hard when you're the only ones not giving in to your kids...

From your description, she'll be easy to spot.

I see this kind of thing all the time where I work now. I have never been able to figure out why people have to scam, lie, cheat, steal etc. It effects all of us hard working people.
