Not sure which is more unsettling...

... getting a call from an autobot claiming that an inmate is trying to contact me (even though the highly garbled 'live human' muttering his name sounded like it was 'David' - not the name of any of my sproggin or their known-of mates)....

... or acknowledging that I know (thanks to the escapades of 3 outta my 4 sproggin) how this process is supposed to work.


Sigh.

Not really. It is much neater a proposition to hire someone once and never see them again.

She was a mean drunk and I was horny enough to stick with her when I was 16 and talk myself into believing she will get better. It was a good lesson to learn. People change for the worse, not the better

Two of the four accounted for. Other two have me in their Do Not Call list, but best triangulation I can do suggests they're also in the clear. Time to it a night and watch something silly on netflix with Darling Wife.
