I got a job!

I have a job now! I'm starting Monday at PetSmart. I'll be cross-training on the cash register and in the small animal dept. In other news I got some pain medication for Gypsy to try to control her arthritis. She's otherwise healthy and as long as her pain is managed she should continue to have a good life. I'm also giving serious thought to starting another LJ discussing why abortion is wrong.

Civil charges

When I talked to Max (the report-taker), she advised me to take the case to Potter Co. for civil charges. I'll give it a try, but she was right when she pointed out that this could be a case of he said, she said. I wish I could count on Rita, but I have a feeling if she's subpoenaed she may lie even under oath.

Finally!

I finally got off my duff and called Lt. Kuster. She advised me to make an embezzlement report against Andy, which I am going to do later today when the report-taker calls me back. Maybe I can scare him into paying me...

Got my car back today.

Turned out to be the starter switch this time. It cost about $350. Heheh, at this rate I'm going to end up having the whole car rebuilt one piece at a time. Still, I love my Jimmy, so it's worth it.

Not all psychopaths are murderers

Some are just thieves.

According to Wikipedia: In current clinical use, psychopathy is most commonly diagnosed using Robert D. Hare's Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R). Hare describes psychopaths as "intraspecies predators who use charm, manipulation, intimidation, and violence to control others and to satisfy their own selfish needs. Lacking in conscience and in feelings for others, they cold-bloodedly take what they want and do as they please, violating social norms and expectations without the slightest sense of guilt or regret."[2]

Well, I know one. A little over a year ago I made a verbal deal with someone I've known for over 23 years to sell NUMEROUS high price items for me on Ebay, including Franklin Mint figurines and Barbies still in the box. Since he was going to be doing the hard part, I made a very generous deal with him. To make a long story short, he paid me for about the first seven Barbies and I haven't seen a dime since then. About six months ago he quit talking to me altogether. Now he's trying to turn it around and make it seem like HE'S the victim in all this. I've come to realize that in his own little world, as long as he thinks it's all right, then it is. He literally has no conscience and no scruples. I should also mention that in the process of moving out of state, he borrowed heavily from his parents and has made no attempts to repay them either. They had to declare bankruptcy recently.

If anyone wants to know the name of this "paragon of virtue", just let me know and I'll tell you. I do know that his last known location was Colorado Springs and the last I knew he was involved in falconry. He is also Wiccan and probably active in the gay community.

How could he?

I went to see Andy's parents yesterday, in the slim hope that his mother would agree to give an affidavit against him. She didn't of course, even though he ripped them off just as badly as he did me. I felt so badly for them when I saw them. They both look like they've aged about 20 years since I saw them last. Ken still can't talk clearly, he's on oxygen and he's having myriad other health problems. Rita is just worn out from caring from him and worrying about her daughter, who is having health problems of her own. Throw in Andy's utterly reprehensible actions and life must just seem like hell to her right now. I could just kick Andy's worthless ass, for what he's done to me and to his family. What a worthless POS he's turned out to be.

Almost a month...

now, since I retired. After taking a few weeks off, I've gotten back into the swing of things, taking a few temp jobs while I'm searching for something permanent. I'm in no great hurry, I still have plenty of money for a cushion until something comes along.

Also, on a really happy note, Sarah had her baby today! It's a girl, named Sophia Mary Louise Williams. *chuckle* It's also going to be her last. Pregnancy is just too hard on her. Debbie was so happy when I talked to her.

Perturbed

When I ate at United today there was a black purse setting in a chair, along with a few other items. A couple started to sit there, then moved thinking someone else was already sitting there. After a few minutes I told the women behind the coffee counter about it and they did nothing, just said that someone would be back for it. About halfway through my meal, a woman walked up, carrying her own tan purse, and sat down at that table. She stared at me, making eye contact, which made me wonder what she was up to. She then kept looking around and staring at me while she ate. I told the women again that it didn't look right to me and they kept saying they'd contact a supervisor. When they finally did all she did was walk up to the woman and ask if that was hers. She said it was and the supervisor left it at that. I have a feeling that someone is going to be reporting a lost purse to United....but it will be too late...

Things

Well,I finally have turn signals again! Only cost about $25 too. $10 for the flasher unit and $15 to have in installed. The installation was the hard part. The mechanic could not find where it went and had to practically take apart my dashboard to find it. Took nearly an hour. I felt really sorry for him.

While I was waiting there was a flier blowing around that kept hitting my legs and getting caught under my tires. It was for a little lost Maltese type dog that was from 1014 Milam, which is very close to me. It was such a cute little dog from the pictures. Also while I was waiting this incredibly tiny black dog was running around loose across the street in a little park. I went over and tried to get it to come to me, but it spooked and took off, hopefully heading home. It really pissed me off to see that little dog (which I'm pretty sure is one I've seen on my own block, about two blocks over). To get to the park it had to cross two streets, one of them fairly busy. Even if it's a dog that knows how dangerous cars are, it was still so tiny that any other dog (or cat for that matter) could kill it with one bite. I bet it didn't weigh over five lbs., if that much. And from the way it moved, it was full grown, not a puppy.

Well, I've finally bit the bullet and deleted my Mummies Alive! friends on AIM. I never talk to any of them anymore, so why keep it? It's sad, though, when virtual friendships just fade away.

The Duggars

There is a couple in Arkansas who have 16 children and are talking about having more. Personally, this doesn't bother me as the family is NOT living on welfare. They are managing quite nicely on rental property and I believe the husband is a realtor. He also was in politics for a while and we all know that pays well. :>

Some people, however, consider it their business to condemn the family because of so many children.

Fortunately some people have a little common sense.
