My Grandson, Sort Of

Yesterday I got a call from my grandson. “Hi grandma,” said this deep voice. And I said, “I didn’t have children, therefore I don’t have any grand children, and you can fuck off.” And I hung up.


And Ed got a call from his granddaughter a while back and told her she should work on her intro because she wasn’t very good at it.


Or I wonder if I should just string the caller along, pretend to be sucked in, promise to send him the money I know he will ask for, get details that can be traced, and turn everything over to the fraud hotline agents.


Or I could say, “Joey, I’m so glad you called. When did they release you from prison? Are you off the drugs? Did you know that Melanie had the baby? “

There’s a whole list of possibilities. I’m going to dwell on this. And you all thought getting older was just more downers.

xx, Teal

The sad part is that very often grandparents don't hear from their grandchildren a whole lot and if they are losing memory or are infirm, they are so happy to hear from them, that they won't be suspicious. Usually, the "grandchild" says, "I'm in trouble, grandma. Someone stole my wallet and I can't get back home -- can you wire me some money," or a variation thereof.

Someone's already tried a call twice? I guess they're conning someone, somewhere. Wonder what the next part is they'd say?
