I call my grandmother every week. My parents are dead and so are all the grandparents but her. She's sweet and still razor sharp even at 95, so it's not a chore, she's fun.
Appreciate em while you can!

My father in law fell for a scam recently.

the caller said he need x amount of money on some gift cards or something. He runs to the store to by the cards and the cashier thought something was fishy and asked him what he needed the gift cards for...

"Honey, you've been scammed. Don't buy these cards, and if he calls you back, tell them you've alerted the police and hang up."

Saved him from spending a ton of money.

There are some nice people still out there.

Kind of like the people who drag their political obsessions into every damn thread.

People have been doing this for decades. My grandma got some call in the 1990s about this. But she knew I was too savvy a criminal to get caught and use some bullshiat intermediary like the scammer suggested, because she taught me well.

They're both dead, so either one of them calling me would be grounds for instantly blocking the number.
