WTF Wednesday, be careful popping tags

This morning I went out for my run bright and early.  I was pretty pleased with myself and decided to go a bit further than the five miles I had planned.  Somewhere around the five and a half mark I suddenly felt something slam into the back of my knee.

I was certain I had been hit by a car.

oh my god

I felt myself falling forward and my first thought was wondering how bad my injuries were.  I couldn’t really feel anything at first and then I felt liquid on my face.  It was wet and warm.  For a second I thought it was blood and I was sure I was badly injured.  I could only imagine the hole that was probably in my head.

After a quick second I realized what had happened.

dog licks

My neighbors dogs had gotten out and when they do that if they see me running they will usually try to run with me.  There are four of them, two bloodhounds and two golden retrievers.  One of the golden retrievers had knocked me down and the bloodhounds were licking my face.

At least I didn’t get hit by a car but it did take a 30 minute shower to get all the dirt and spit off of me.

When I was in Ohio I was watching the news one early morning and I saw a story about tornado’s that occurred in North Carolina and then they interview a young boy who saw a roof fly off a home.  The interview was hilarious and as luck would have it, I found it online.

MacGyver likes to shop in pawn shops.  He does so quite frequently.  This morning he got a call from an employee at a pawn shop a few hundred miles away.  She was calling to inform him that items he had pawned were about to be sent to the floor to be sold.  The only problem is, MacGyver has never pawned anything in his life.

So, the employee put him on hold and then came back to the phone and said ‘don’t worry about it, apparently an employee of ours used your info for a customer who had the same first name as you but no identification.’    Then MacGyver said, ‘but I am worried because that’s identity theft.’

The employee got rude and told him he wasn’t listening.  Basically the pawn shop is a chain and MacGyver bought something from them and they stored his info in their database.  Someone came into their store to pawn something but did not have any identification so the employee of the pawn store went into the computer and used MacGyver’s info.

Sounds like identity theft to me. When MacGyver said as much the lady who called him got pissed and hung up on him.

seriously

I can’t believe how casually the store and the employee handled this situation and based on that I’m pretty sure there gonna be all kinds of upset when a detective shows up to investigate.  Idiots!

WTF, it’s Wednesday.

  1. Oh My Word…that Pawn Shop story sounds awful..I wouldn’t want my information as part of the pawn shop world….especially put on items that are not even yours??? Next thing it will show up that he is pawning his collection of 50 Shades of Grey collection complete with accessories. Yikes!

    For the record I have never read the books or seen the movie but I can only imagine you wouldn’t want your info. tied to that crap.
