Sharing My World 30-05-2022

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

Has anyone ever tried to scam you?
Obviously I get the usual scam emails, texts and so on. I used to get scam phone calls but they’ve dried up. I even had someone once pretending to be my uncle on Facebook, fake profile and everything. They made some rookie mistakes, though. Amateurs.

What’s the best thing about parties?
Not going.

Do you listen to people’s advice if you didn’t ask for it?
Yes, if they tell me what I want to hear.

Why is it impossible to spell funeral without fun?
Because… it has the letters “fun” in it. That’s English for you.

Here’s a Cornish hedgerow from my walk on Friday.

    Can you buy those hedgerows online?

      Yes, I’ll sell you one! Just make out your cheque to “Cornwall Area Specialist Hedgerows” – that’s quite a mouthful, just abbreviate that to “CASH” – and I’ll, um, send one on…

    You know it’s a scam when you’re getting Facebook solicitations from your Uncle Agnes…

      There’s always some subtle warning sign…

    “Yes, if they tell me what I want to hear.”…perfect!

    I’ve just been scammed. Don’t ask.

    Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your World. Very pithy (as in dry wit, not saying “pissy’ with a lisp; no profiling intended) answers! You hit on it. What puts the fun in funerals? F U N the letters. How precise! 😂 You are lucky to have those beautiful hedgerows to walk amongst. Have a wonderful week!

      Lovely for walks, not so great for cars 🙂
