She was into it and later changed her mind when her husband found out.

Just fondled? Shoulda robbed them.

In other news some people are stupid or gullible enough that they think they need to be IN the shower to "test the plumbing".
 
2014-02-14 01:23:11 PM  
So, he fixed the shower?

Well, okay, but I have to warn you I BEEF in there, and then heel it down the drain.

Wait... does that actually work?

My Valentines Day is looking up.

I should try that on the wife.  I bet she takes it serious.

If someone called to say there was a problem with your water and a man showed up at your door and asked you to take a shower to test your plumbing, would you do it?

Apparently some women in the St-Michel district did, and were subsequently fondled.


I gotta say, I think they had it coming...so to speak. I mean, if you're that gotdamned stupid, bad things should happen to you.

Now about your bidet...

Yea. And it would serve him right.

FTA :

"The modus operandi was this: a female caller would contact the tenant and say they were with Hydro-Québec, the city of Montreal, an employee of the building owner, or the rental board. They would tell them there was a problem with their water system and they should get ready to take a shower because a test was going to be done."


"Anyone with information, either about the female accomplice or other victims are invited to call Info-Crime at 514-393-1133. All calls are confidential."


I am guessing that if this guy was capable of pulling off this stunt, that he might also be ballsy enough to disguise his voice as a female.

I'm not sure exactly why, maybe because it's Valentine's Day, but "subsequently fondled" is a hilarious combination of words. I kind of feel bad laughing at it given the circumstances, but I'm still laughing.

Also did you know that they've launched a satellite that will give you a free mammagram?

All you have to do is put your (naked, please) boobs up against a street-facing window when the satellite goes overhead, which will be at 2.45pm for your street

Thank you

I would like to see a picture of the victims before I judge the perp.

Subsequent fondling as a band name?

I can't believe that worked!

I would be too chicken to even try that

Did it never cross their mind to simply turn on the shower? Why the fark would you think you had to actually get in it to test the plumbing? On top of that, they get naked and shower with a strange man in the house? Sorry, these women deserved to get felt up.

For the sake of our species, I hope those women never reproduce.

This has to be fake. No one can be that stupid, could they?
 
2014-02-15 10:25:34 AM  
I bet the call started something like this "Hello Ms, we have had reports of toxic ink seeping into our system from your residence, we need to ensure it isn't coming from your tattoos."

"Let's see if it leaks if I squeeze this?"
"How about this?"
...

I just...I can't even...I...

HOW could you agree to that, and not have an inkling it's sketchy? WHY wouldn't you bother, at the very minimum, calling the farking water company and verifying this guy's sent from them.

I mean, hell, in Disney's 101 Dalmations, from ~1960, little Nanny didn't believe the crooks were really with the water company.

And I could maybe, MAYBE understand one victim.  ONE.  They have SEVEN reported cases, and apparently, a bunch of other likely vics.

Stupidity this bad should be justification for euthanasia.
