    To Whom It May Concern,

    Why the fook do you bother putting on a face mask halfa$$ed (read: WRONG) if you're only going to wear it either hanging on one ear (a$$hat has both natural external ears) or cradling your chin (same neighbor has it on both ears, but not covering anything but the neck)? And this is just one neighbor! I got a short lecture from a medical assistant at my podiatrist's office because I didn't have mine on high enough while he readjusted it (we were both coronavirus-negative, so we were both "safe".)

    I'd hate to find out what the medical assistant would say/do if he had encountered my neighbors!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    A fire is not a time to start flirting with married firefighters. 'Nuf said.

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    You may disagree with Dr. Anthony Fauci concerning what he says concerning the current pandemic, but keep his family the fuck out of your disagreement. He had to hire security because several nutjuobs actually threatened them! Fauci has fucking forgotten more about virology than any of you have learned!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Leave the light switch up! You've been told repeatedly about it. If you're unsure which one needs to be in the "up" position, have both in said position (I had to reset two clocks, my cellphone charger and my computer due to the bint!)

    Oh, and while we're at it, are you deliberately trying to poison me? It took three fooking minutes each to rinse off all of the dish soap that was left on my cooking stuff (measuring cups, flatware, bowls, pots, pans, etc.) And why did you disregard my warning about strep throat? Your other client here has three weaknesses that make him vulnerable to strep as well as coronavirus. Take care of his apartment first, then come to mine!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    You don't want a visit from one of The Trio. The only reason they'd "visit" your apartment is because you're going to require an ambulance. Hell, Tovarish let the apartment manager know that two of my neighbors were unable to "dial"/"call" 9-1-1/9-9-9 (he had to both times.) If you want a :kitty: to interact with, either adopt one of your own or buy a toy :kitty: (there are several stuffed :kitty:s that one can purchase that don't require food/water/amenities/a veterinarian.) Stop pestering me about them!

    No, I don't want to play with your dog. I want to stay out of the ER until the end of this year, at least.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    Why do you keep tossing the scraps of paper with my apartment number on them? They're used to designate that the laundry in the washer and/or the dryer is mine. Every laundry room in the building actually have the same rules posted prominently on the walls about having one's laundry "marked" by having a slip of paper with the apartment number on it placed on the machine/s. I had to use an envelope because the complex ran out of scrap paper (which is why I reuse the "tags" that I had already [need to purchase more "poster hangers", the little adhesives that are used to hang posters without using nails or other hardware that one has to make holes in the walls, as well].)

    So a few months ago my bank announced they were going to simplify monthly statements. Well just got my first new and improved simplified statement today. Gee, this new 12 page document is so much simpler then the old 3 page version! o_O

    I don't give my Social Security Number to anyone over the telephone, especially to someone claiming that my SSN appeared in Texas. I'm going to let my "banker" know about the phone call later today.

    (Before anyone asks, I hung up on the person, wary that the person was trying to obtain "another identity".)

    "You are about to be arrested..."

    That's the one! I don't find it laughable because most of my neighbors would fall for the scam (those who aren't ESL are "challenged" iykwim.) I just let one of the caseworkers know about the phone call and asked him to let the rest of the staff at the "bank" know about it.

    The Trio has earned their crunchies and tinned food getting my blood pressure down.

    A trillion dollars goes to phone scammers from US...mostly elderly getting robbed of their savings.

    No the ocurences aren't laughable...I deal with this every week with my 90 year old mom. we have trained her to not give info and report to us the calls she gets..and she gets the calls.

    It is laughable the scams they get away with...we need to train people to avoid them.

    Transcribed voice mail on my 'other' phone, not the one Amazon knows about. Nor is my subscription paid from my bank account.

    "Hi this is a call from Amazon to inform you that your Amazon prime account
    will be auto renew for 39.99 from your bank account so enjoy using Amazon
    prime services or if you want to discontinue or unsubscribe the services
    then speak to a amazon service manager by pressing one."

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Son, I am likely one of the least money motivated individuals you'll ever encounter. If, I decide to come out of retirement for your project, greenbacks waved in my face will not be the reason. Clean up your act and we'll talk.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Yes, I have voted already and no, I won't disclose who I voted for. It's none of your business one way or the other, so back off.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    I'm not disclosing which way I "swing" nor am I interested in dating someone who is married. I've seen too many supposedly strong relationships shatter due to one or both partners looking "outside" for "comfort" and I know that the "other" usually ends up being tossed aside after the "thrill" is gone. I'll just go solo with my :kitty:s for the rest of my life instead.

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    I think you dropped your underbriefs in the public hall. I don't wear either that size or that particular kind of cut (they were men's briefs, XX-Large.) I refuse to take them unless they are to be used to transport :kitty:s!

    I don't have my own bank account, Ditto credit card.

    Stop bloody calling me for a bloody donation!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    2:00 - 5:00 in the bloody morning isn't a proper time to do maintenance in a bloody apartment, especially if it involves hammering, drilling or using an electric saw! It's worse if it also involves metal!

    Stop pestering the EMS personnel and/or 9-1-1/9-9-9 dispatchers! Ditto ambulance personnel! Just remember what happened to the boy who cried "wolf" one too many times!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    I asked you politely not to toss out my pill bottles! Some I use to measure out my night pills, some have important items in them, and some I carry money in them. Oh, and I politely asked you not to throw out the reusable straw that was still in the box (luckily, I got that one before the woman who "helps" me took it out to the garbage.) Thirdly, please hang my key ring either on the front door handle or on the hook inside the closet. And we won't get into how you just toss unwashed/half-washed pots and pans in with the clean/unused ones!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    You are d@mn lucky that you don't wear glasses or contacts. Do not laugh when someone falls on the fooking sidewalk because s/he cannot see the fooking path.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    Be grateful that your physician took you when you were a quarter of an hour late for your appointment, especially when you haven't let him/her know that you were going to be. You have a smart phone, use it for such purposes. I was able to let my podiatrist's office know that I was going to be late (albeit a couple of minutes) even when I was in pain. I was lucky that I didn't sprain or fracture anything (this time.)

    Alas, I have several abrasions, and I had to purchase some larger adhesive bandages to deal with my wounds.

    I guess this is more a "What The Hell?" than a rant, but I'll just post it here rather than start a new thread. So the wife and I are streaming Radio Mirchi today from her native country Fiji, when a commercial comes on from one of the grocers there. Apparently they have a sale on bottled Fiji Water! What... doesn't Fiji water come out of the tap in Fiji...? o_O

    Many years ago, Saratoga Springs bottling company got in trouble because what they were selling was not mineral water from the Spring but tap water from the town of Saratoga Springs, which has some mineral content. Since the spring water is not carbonated nobody knew the difference until someone noticed that it did not taste the same as before.

    That's just it. In Fiji, the municipal water supply comes from the very same source as the bottled stuff sold worldwide. The only difference is, fluoride and other chems are added to the reservoir tanks. They say it's actually cleaner than the bottled version. That's why it struck me as odd that Bottled Fiji Water would be sold there. Although, much of the population has no access to the municipal water supply and relies on unfiltered water from wells and streams. Doubt those folks could afford to buy the bottled stuff though.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    My political affiliation is my own business. Back off.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    I've already voted. No, I won't jeopardize my ability to vote in the future by committing a federal felony by voting twice, which was an option offered by several candidates as a way to "check" for "mail fraud". The proposition of "mail-in ballot fraud" is pure BS/MS/PhD, and most people know that.

    To Whom It May Concern #3

    Voter intimidation is a federal offense. When they catch/identify you, you're going to lose your ability to vote for the rest of your life. Was it worth it for your candidate?
