Sorry - but this is not true.

You should check these reports in snopes.com before posting.

Hmmm. . . two exact same wordings. . .:_))

THANKS, Louie and Annonymous, thank you. You did it for me. ;-)
Better safe than caught. . . . ooopps.

The guy who sent it to me is super meticulous about such things. . . .oh well, even "Homer nods. . ."

Gratefully no harm done.

Btw, I'd love to see you guys comment about some of the other postings . . .share your ideas.

Bestie 1's mom sent this around a couple of months ago.
I researched it for her on snopes and found out it is a hoax.

The avalanche of hohohos and accolades hasn't arrived yet from people who read my piece about telemarketers on Red Bubble. So what's the story?

I actually did get a call from an Indian telemarketer named Veronica, which was what inspired me to write the piece.

Oh well... fame has once again eluded me.
