I HAVE LICE?!! By Linda S. Glaz
That’s right. You get the note/call from the school. “Hello, Mrs./Mr. So and So, you’ll need to come pick up your child. Yes, she/he has lice.”
Lice!!! I have a clean house—relatively clean. A clean child—most of the time. How did she get lice?
Okay, I don’t have lice. Whew, dodged that bullet yesterday, but I did get hacked this weekend. And you know what? I felt like I got the call from school!
I felt dirty, violated, and it almost made me scratch!
I DON’T OPEN FORWARDS
I DON’T OPEN LINKS I DON’T KNOW
I DON’T OPEN ATTACHMENTS, oops! I guess as an agent, I DO open attachments and there isn’t really a solution to that problem.
Ran three security scans, changed my password twice, and sent notices to everyone in my contact list (mistake # 1,895) because now AOL thought I was ACTIVELY spamming people on my list after all the changes. Sooo? AOL locked me out. They told me to sign in so I could get information about being locked out.
Really? Did they think I hadn’t tried signing in???
What a weekend. I don’t think I need to tell you what I would like to do to people who have nothing better to do with their time (how about getting a real job?) than to mess with peoples’ lives online. (thinking horrible torturous things J)
So, I sit here with a fine-toothed comb, trying to clean my computer of any possible nits that might reproduce. I’ve used the security shampoo many times since it happened and will continue to do so until I’m sure I’ve ridded myself of the real insects, the nasty, mean, useless hackers who find it amusing to mess up peoples’ lives with lice!
Wow! This surely was an uplifting blog, right? Let me end with,
HAVE A BLESSED DAY AND KNOW THAT THROUGH THE TRIALS, GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL! SCRATCH, SCRATCH, SCRATCH…
