Mary Worth 3131

Terry Bryson PSA | Day 7

Thank heaven that Estelle recapped Terry's instructions, or readers without yesterday's splash panel would never see the website you can use for turning in people that annoy you online. But now that the site has appeared in Mary Worth, I'd expect the government servers to crash any moment.

"Hi, honey, whatcha doin'?"

"I'm reading Wanders' excellent blog maryworthandme.blogspot.com for today's hilarious post."

"Uhhh, okay."

"Oh that sounds like fun. I'm going to check out the latest local happenings at www.news5cleveland.com/news."

"Okay, and later we can look for bargains on petunias at https://www.homedepot.com/s/plants?NCNI-5 so we can finish up those flower beds."

Sheesh.

Righto, Wanders.

Stand by for a week of Estelle continuing to rehash her Beautiful Man missteps while Mary looks on smugly and drops platitudes. Of course, Estelle will thank Mary profusely, which will make Mary’s halo grow three sizes.

I'm hoping Terry Bryson dons a skintight, black, spandex catsuit and hunts Artheur down. She has the martial arts skills and the look to play Black Widow in a Marvel movie.

Too funny everyone! Scottie McW, you are a stitch! I appreciate KM's repeating the web site today because when I saw it on the Washington Post yesterday, I thought it was Jc3.gov. JC3.doe leads to the Department of Energy's cyber crime reporting site. Unless Arthu/er is planning to take out a nuclear power plant, jc3.doe probably doesn't apply. Then again, he does look like someone who might nurse past resentments.

Nice of Mary to bring up the fact Terry has a real man in her life. I know that would sure make me feel better, if I was Estelle.

I would recommend that Estelle takes all the practical steps that Terry outlined, plus taking down her SilverDaters profile. Then she should go to Animal Shelter and adopt another cat. Maybe more. I see a real future for Estelle as a Crazy Cat Lady.

I just got back from three days white water canoeing with my Scouts. Glad I didn't miss any sudden developments. .

Sheesh! What did Terry Bryson add to this "plot"? All she added was the website info. Big deal! I wanted her to do some sleuthing and figure out who and where "Arthur" (not his real name) really is. This is SO BORING!

Plus, did anyone else notice that Mary *never* invites Estelle over? Not even now, when she's planning a dinner party for Terry and Adam? Estelle, review past interactions for possible causes.

Tuesday: Why does Mary think Estelle needs "moral support" to report Arthur/er on a website? What is she going to do? Look over Estelle's shoulder to make sure she gets everything right?

When she goes to the police to expose Arthur/er, they're going to tell her "Yea, take a number lady" and she will be sitting with other gullible females.

I love Mary"s smug "that's what friends are for". I think it's time to put that one in the Charterstone jukebox. (If it's not in there already!)

KitKat said...

By "moral support," Mary means, "Estelle, you are such an airhead, you can't be trusted to do things correctly. So you don't want my moral support? Go ahead and screw this up on your own! If I hadn't needed someone to take this cat off my hands, I would never have given you the time of day."

I heard a report about Internet romance scams this a.m. on BBC World Service Radio:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3cswrjw

It turns out that Arthur/er was a bush-league grifter at best. The real pro scammers work with a network of scammers who specialize in various levels of the con and often reap millions. No wonder Estelle's Beautiful Man lives in a toxic waste dump and is a cigarette away from a coronary arrest!

Tim said...

If this storyline ends with a PSA and Estelle sadly reporting her scammer to every possible agency this becomes the lamest Worthverse ending ever. I don't think Mary has earned her victory lap but she will take one anyhow.

LouiseF said...

Mary needs to make sure Estelle reports Arthu/er so she can properly gossip about it with Toby.

fauxprof said...

I’m disappointed in Terry Bryson. I had hoped that she and Adam would track Arthu(e)r down, kick in his door, free the poor sad dog, and get whatever was left of Estelle’s money. June could have drawn a great action sequence for them.

KitKat said...

@fauxprof’s scenario is vastly superior to KM’s bland and blah series of PSAs (what an understatement!, and June would salivate simply at the thought of illustrating it.

Wednesday: Mary uses store bought salad dressing? I call you know what...

Regina Wolfe-Parks said...

Wednesday: "Enjoy being a cat Libby". I know Libby's glad to be a cat, based on how clueless and dopey Estelle is.

Mary: "Dating use to be simple back in the day." Back in Mary's day the parents picked who you were going to marry and you would sit in the parlor with your beau with Mother and Father peeking through the curtains.

LouiseF said...

Perhaps JB has Mary tearing lettuce for a salad as ANOTHER PSA. This one, "ditch the muffins and eat green!"..Bet she's making that salad to serve for dinner with Adam and Terry while Estelle does penance recounting her experience with SilverDaters to the feds.
