Unusual Texting, Notes

Kind of was a lousy weekend, despite a good General Conference.

But here is a funny/odd story.

I was in the TSC studying for a test, and i have the follow transaction through text messages.

Unknown Number: "Hey whats up"
Me: Not much how are you?
Unkown Number: Hey whats your name?
Me: Who is this?
UN: Derek aka smiley
Me: this is Calvin
UN: calvin?
Me: yes how do I know you?
UN: whats your last name?
Me: kenley
UN: where do you live?
Me: Logan. listen I dont think I know you.
UN: no, I want to be your friend, listen, calvin can you do me a favor?
Me: what would that be?
UN: well ok, i need 250 dollars by tomorrow or else i go to jail but i don't get paid til next week so i was wounderin if you can loan me 250 i will pay you back. please if u can go to walmart and moneygram it to me today.
Me: I don't do favors like that for people i don't know.
UN: Please, I will send you a picture of myself! (He send a picture of himself, he is a latin looking dude with a mustache and a Skyview Sweatshirt on)
Me: this is really weird man. how did you even get my number
UN: Please i will pay you back
Me: Why do you have my number?
UN: Please I will pay you back I promise!
Me: Your not answering my question.
UN: Ok fine, I seen a picture of you on mandi's facebook and i saw you number that is how i got to talk to you please will you help me, i will pay you back!
Me: Can't help you. Go to one of those quickloan places.

At this point I stopped texting for about 2 hours. About every half an hour I received a message like this.

UN: Please Please! I said I will pay you back, I promise! I will pay you back!

Finally I texted him back
UN: Ok. Fine. tell me how i can get that money you said at quickloan???
Me: Search on the internet for fastcash in logan
UN: Do i get it for free
Me: No you have to leave some sort of collateral, something of value
UN: Like what tell me
Me: A car title or pay stub or something like that
UN: Like a social security card or ID card?
Me: No it has to have monetary value, like a car title. at least worth the loan amount.
UN: I dont have that if u help me i promise to pay!
Me: no can do
UN: Why?
Me: Because there is no way i am giving money to some random guy who gets my number off facebook. promises are worth nothing, you can just run with the money. you are crazy thinking someone will give you a loan like that. especially that you have never met before.
UN: Do you know anybody? (Now its like that curse on the ring where you have to pass it on. Lucky for you I did not punish anyone by giving him their number)
Me: Not that would help you. Goodbye.

That was the last I heard of him. Man was he annoying. Needless to say, I took my number off facebook and blocked the dude and any public from seeing my account. I did a bit of research, he is a real guy, not somebody trying to prank me. what a creepster. I bet he was either an addict that really needed some drug money, or somebody that was owed somebody else some major cash. Either way, your not safe posting info. on line. There are a lot of psychos out there.

Saw Barton Fink for the first time and man was it crazy.

Eminems new songs are worse than ever before. Absolute garbage.

Celebrity Apprentice had a double firing this week. It seemed like a very ratings based decision. Trump fired two very boring people who didn't contribute to the feel of the show. Chloe got canned because he found out she had a DUI whereas the TLC chick "T-boz" went because she volunteered to go into the bored room, and as Trump says, "Never volunteer for anything negative!" Clint clearly should have been the only one to go. He was being such a weirdo during the whole task. Anyways, Junk TV sometimes can be soooo good.

We were supposed to play on campus today as part of the Day on the Quad. This mornign they cancelled the Quad stuff because it looked like it was going to rain. But now its beautiful out there. What the heck weather??
