What's In My Inbox

You've probably gotten these "warning" type e-mails before: don't flash your lights at cars that don't have their headlights on because they might be gang members and kill you; don't stop your car to check out a flyer stuck to your back window because it might be a carjacker; don't pull over for an unmarked cop car flashing blue lights; don't accept any wooden nickels; don't leave your house on any night with a full moon when it's foggy and at least two American league leaders are playing under-.500 National league teams; don't fear the reaper; etc.

And thanks to my good friend James Everett McPherson III (aka "Flea") we now have reason to fear Home Depot. Well, maybe "fear" isn't the right word. Read on...


Be Careful - A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Home Depot customers.

Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naïve enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends. Here's how the scam works: Two very hot 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your stuff into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts.

It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead they ask you for a ride to Lowe's. You agree and they get in the backseat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen March 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th & 29th. Also April 1st, 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th, 30th, three times last Saturday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful.

P.S. WalMart has wallets on sale, $2.99 each.


Thanks for the "warning" Flea! Anyone need some molding or a new leaf blower??
