Back in the days when a phone was actually used for talking, I was a student. I recall being assigned “compare and contrast” essays. Did you ever write those?
Recently the following two news stories caught my interest:
Facebook flirting turned into date from hell
Man says he found $150K in his garden
Both stories involve a man and some money. One man is more than twice the age of the other. Apparently both men are out of work.
The FB guy turns out to be not only a knife wielding robber but a con man too. He conned this nice young woman into being his unsuspecting get-away driver for his crime on their first date (last date also). Nothing like a date ending up in jail to ruin the fun.
Contrast that no good scumbag (I don’t remember if I was allowed to use scumbag in my student essays) with an honest guy who becomes worried about finding about 150 thousand dollars in his garden. I don’t know maybe money grows on cabbage. I have only heard about the trees.
The money garden guy told this story of telling his father about his discovery:
“I told him, we have enough problems, now we got another problem. Look what I found in the garden,” he recalled. “What are we going to do with all this money?”
He has reported the money and needs to wait for law enforcement to investigate. Since reporting the money he has hired a lawyer and is continuously being bothered by the media.
