"Wow. That's really high quality spam. Well done.

That's gotta be a 9.5 on the SPAM scale. "

I'm with you. Normally you don't get responses from the spammers. That made it all the more believeable. Nicely done! LOL

When we were together, you said you'd die for me. Now, I think it's time you kept your promise.

What made me suspicious [Re: Debi]
      #391780 - 04/19/08 12:36 PM

Was the 'beautiful little boy' comment (one would imagine a preschooler or up to aged 6-7 at a pinch) and then he was 'grounded' and 'no phone privileges'. I don't know many 'beautiful little boys' with phone privileges. It is enough to get them to say "hi' to grandma!

If I can't be part of the solution I insist on being most of the problem

A different approach to the clean room [Re: hippomommy]
      #392474 - 04/21/08 08:04 PM

I realize this post was concerning a much younger boy but here is something that is worth sharing.

We raised two boys who were excellent students, very active in sports and held after school jobs. Their bedrooms were a mess. One day I was complaining to another parent about it and she shed a totally different light on it.

Her teenage daughter was a honor student, was valevictorian of the class, involved in sports, worked part time and had a very messy room. this parents theory is that in all other aspects of her daughters life she was in control, good grades, sports involvement, church, work, there was no messiness there but maybe the messy room was her only she let the room go and chose to close the door rather than make it an issue.

What she said made sense to me... her daughter went on to a good school and did well, her place now is neat except for her bedroom which again maybe that lack of control and orderliness is what some may need.

I am not saying all and I am not condoning a messy room but I thought that was an interesting perspective. I chose to ignore the messy room and just closed the door. Eventually they clean it...then they mess it then they clean it...
