Beware shopping at Lowes!! DANGER !

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Lowes customers. This one caught me by surprise.. Over the last month or two 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 naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your male friends.
>
> Here's how the scam works: Two seriously good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping bags into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their boobs 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 ask you for a ride to McDonalds.
>
> You agree and they get in the back
>
> seat. On the way to McDonalds, 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 February 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th,20th, 24th & 28th. Also march 1st, 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, three times last Saturday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

> So tell your friends to be careful!!
>
> P. S. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for 2.99 each.

Tough times call for drastic measures --- people are doing what ever to simply survive - You just can't trust anybody these days!!

I'm on my way to Wal-mart to pick up some wallets to get me thru the weekend, then up the road to Lowe's, as we need some hvac filters, and my windshield on the SD is dirty....plus the vanilla ice cream cones on the McDonald's dollar menu are pretty good......

Tomorrow I'll need light bulbs, then I'm sure I'll forget the lawn fertilizer, and I'll have to go back for that, and oh yeah...probably going to need a key or two made, and I can always use a couple of 2x4's...wow gonna be an expensive weekend ---- but oh well!

Yeah right glad you reminded me about the lawn fertilizer. Do they sell it by the pound? May need to make multiple trips to make sure I don't get too much on first trip. That stuff is getting so expensive. My neighbors needs keys made too I'm pretty sure.

Ya know, I was wondering if they sell it by the pound...I've been known to rip the bag when taking it out of the car. And once it dumps on the driveway, you've gotta throw it out - can't use it, as it's not as effective once it touches concrete. I hate it when that happens!!

Ok - gotta go and put some jagged metal pieces in my trunk in preparation of loading the bags of fertilizer, and then I need to call Lowe's and see if I can get a credit line increase on my Lowes card in prep for the weekend shopping.....
