Mary Worth 322

Why did "I gave out all my personal information in reply to a phishing email," only get a "Don't feel bad, it can happen to anyone," from Terry, while "I may have overlooked a one dollar charge on my credit card statement," gets a, "YOU DID WHAT!?"

But very legitimate financial and legal advocates are responding quite enthusiastically to this exciting story. Like this guy who refers to it in his blog. He gets the fraud victim wrong; Mary Worth would NEVER fall for a phishing scam. Still, that's no reason not to trust everything else that he blogs about.

Terry: YOU DID WHAT?

Toby: You heard me bioch. It's my credit card statement and I didn't review it. So what! The bank tells me that I'm not responsible for the fruadulant charges on my account anyway. Security expert my ass. You come in here with an empty brief case and a sneer and expect me to genuflect at your feet. All I had to do was to google "Identity Theft". But nooooooooooo. It's that Mary Worth again, that meddling busybody. I've just about had it with her and with you. Now get out of here before I throw you out on your ear.

Now THAT's a story line.

Poor Ian. Who would've known that the many months it took to show Toby how to do two things on the computer (shop at enormoushop.com and check electronic mail) would have culminated in such a disaster. Baby steps, Ian, remember that Toby needs baby steps. And good luck trying to teach her how to tend a victory garden now that you two are destitute.

Just how cold is Ensign Terry Bryson's response today? We can get some idea from the fact that Toby's entire face has succumbed to frostbite. Bbrrrrrr!

tina -- I don't know. Toby is so nearly plant-like herself. Maybe she'll turn out to have a special gift with vegetables. My prediction: kohlrabi.

Actually it looks like incredulous tears are pouring down Terry's face ...

BTW, what was that on Bryson's face yesterday? Facial hair??

What is Toby's first name? "Tobias"?

Where exactly is the light coming from in this picture?

If it's from behind Toby, then why is there still light on Doctor Smartysmartsmart's entire face but not her Starfleet costume?

Is the light coming from some highly selective window that only chooses to illuminate the guilt-free? Does it emanate from Toby's left cheek?

Oh, and also: Please hit Toby. Please hit Toby. Please hit Toby...
