Feeling: pretty good
Seem to be recovered from the week. Just staying on course and keeping my head down. Everything seems so out of control right now. I mean the whole world it seems. In one respect it is exciting.....then changes that are taking place in another though it scares the crap out of me. Time will tell how things will turn out.
Yesterday I did something I am not sure was the right thing to do. I tend top want to jump in and rescue people when sometimes it is best to let them find their own path. Long story short my ex came in to the shop. She has gotten into the habit of bringing coffee each Saturday morning and hanging out. I am not sure why she is doing this but she does. It is kind of strange but then she is like that. No big deal on my part. I was married to her for many years and there is still those parts of her that I enjoy.
Yeserday she came in and it was obvious she was distressed. I asked what the problem was and she started crying. She had signed up for one of those secret shopper things on line and was sent a check for 1730.00 dollars. She deposited the check and a couple days later she was to wire through Western Union ,as a way of evaluating Western Unions customer service, the same sum to some woman in England..........Saturday morning her account was closed by the bank.
Now all she had in the account in the way of her personal funds was 800.00 bucks. She can't afford to lose that kind of money............I gave her the 800.00. I don't really care that much about money. Never have. Money is easy to make. I gave it as a gift so I don't have to listen to all the reasons she can't pay it back....makes it easier on my part.
The reason I write this here is two fold. One to warn others that THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH!!! and two to get it out of my own head.
I hope by doing this I have not taken the opportunity away from her to learn something she needs to learn
Things I am thankful for:
Rain on the skylights
Nice hot shower
All the people that have helped me though the years
