Unlucky Steam key scammer calls electronics, gets the dumbest employee in the world

When I worked at Walmart, I went from cart pusher->cashier->electronics->security. Sometimes after I switched to security, when electronics was really swamped, I’d help out for a few minutes. One day, the phone was ringing and I was walking by and randomly answered it.

Sir Scamalot: “Hello, sir, this is Steam Support services with Valve.”

Instantly, of course, I know this is a scam. I adore valve and played so many of their games too. I can’t believe my luck! Of all the calls to answer! Surprisingly he didn’t have some weird accent.

Me: “Oh, uh… what can I do for you?”

Sir Scamalot: “We’ve had reports that game keys shipped to your location may have an error that prevents it from authenticating, specifically the game Counter Strike. We need to validate your game keys to see if your affected.” [I forget which CS was on sale then, this was 2008].

Me: “Oh, what do I do?” As if I didn’t know.

Sir Scamalot: “Well I just need you to open any copies of the game you have and read me the CD key on the instruction manual so I can verify them with our validation software.” [or on the jewel case, I don’t remember that either]

Me: “Sure thing, can I put you on hold for a minute while I get those?”

Sir Scamalot: [obviously happy] “Sure!”

So I put Sir Scamalot on hold while I called all the other area stores electronics department and warned them about the scammer and confirmed nobody had taken a call like this earlier. About 15 minutes later, I get back to Scamalot.

Me: “Thanks for holding, but I can’t find any CD keys. I looked all through the book and the packages.”

Sir Scamalot: [annoyed] “Well sir, just open any copy of Counter Strike and on the-”

Me: “Oh, COUNTER STRIKE! I thought you said Counting Strikes, that bowling game, ok, hold on!”

Everyone in the department is listening and we all laugh. 10 minutes later, I’m back on the line.

Me: “Ok, I got what you’re looking for! What do you need?”

Now I make him walk me through how to open the box, including interrogating him for 5 minutes about how to do it without breaking the seal, then pretend I can’t find the book, etc etc.

Finally, I’m ready to read the code!

First, I read him the UPC. This upsets him. Then I read him a part number from something. Now he’s livid. Finally, I ask if he means the code on the book that says “game key” and has like groups of four digits with dashes (like he’s said probably 50 times already) and he gets excited again.

Oh, ok heres the game key…

Me: “Ok F… like frank. U… like uncle. C… like cat.”

Sir Scamalot: “Sir, I don’t think thats right, normally a code would-”

Me: “No, its. F, U, C, then K like kite. Next four is Y like yesterday. O like owl-”

And he swore at me and hung up.

would you ratherses

Would you rather freeze to death or burn to death

Would you rather gain the ability to sprout wings and fly or grow gills and fins to swim underwater?

Would you rather know the answer to every question or have endless money

Would you rather have an affinity for a musical instrument or for physical feats?

Would you rather never need sleep or never need to eat

1. Freeze to death. I’ve heard that hypothermia is like falling asleep.

2. Grow gills and swim. I’d love to be able to explore the oceans.

3. Have endless money. I could use that money to buy every book and I could use all my extra time from not having to work to read and learn.

4. Well I already have an affinity for music so I guess I’d rather have strength.

5. Oh god this is a tough one. Probably never need sleep. Think of how much more I could get done in a day if I didn’t need to spend 10 hours sleeping.

'Shawn and Y/N what are you doing'

“Shawn and Y/N,what are you doing?”
A/n:Sorry for the English mistakes okay? :)
—————————————-

You had been with Shawn on tour for five days only,and you can easily tell how all these is exhausting,stressing and crazy. Today was the first day that Shawn will have a little free time to do nothing and free from the schedules.
“Babe,can you please stop with that?”
“Stop with what?” You ask looking at him confused.
“You are doing that again!” He answer readjusting himself on you. You both were on his buck,and he was laying on your chest,while you were reading your book.
“Doing what? What’s that I’m doing?” You ask still confused,looking down from the book.
“Every fucking time you start to read,you keep moving non stop,like if you are uncomfortable.” He mumbles a little grumpy.
“I’m sorry love,I never notice that! I’ll try to stop. I promise!” You guarantee to him and kiss the top of his head.
____________________________________________
“For Gods sake Y/N,you are doing it again! I warned you like 5 minutes ago.”
“I’m sorry babe,I’ll stop reading,I already finished this chapter.” You close the book and put beside you.
“Isn’t it boring? Have nothing to do?” He look at you,but you still don’t answer him.“I mean,I love being with you and don’t have to do nothing,but-”
“But you still used to your routine,so when you have nothing to do,you get bored.” He smiled back at you and get up,sitting next to you and pulling you closer to his chest.
“So,what can we do?”
“What do you have in mind?”
“For real? Nothing!” You laugh at his lack of motivation for think on something.

“Are you up for some video game?” Geoff head got in the buck,scaring you.
“What the fuck,Geoff?” With your hand on your chest,both boys laughed of you.
“Sorry Y/N! Didn’t mean to scare you,but I was bored and have nothing to do.” Geoff explain himself,giving you the shoulders.
“Want to play with us?” Shawn ask you,but you know it’s only for not exclude you.
“Nah,I’ll pass this time. But I’ll watch!” He get off the buck helping you out of it.
“Me and you first, then me and Josh,you and Josh and then back to you and me!” Geoff,as always,make the rules and gives Shawn the remote control. You sit next to Shawn and lay your head on his shoulder,watching the boys play and scrolling through Instagram or Twitter.
____________________________________________

After the first round,you are the one bored. Shawn just won over Josh,so now Geoff and Josh are playing against each other,to see who will face Shawn.
“Why don’t we go outside?” You ask,tired of stay at the sofa.
“Are you sure?” Shawn asks,looking at me.
“If I stay in this bus for more 5 minutes I’ll go insane! Please?”
“Ok,let’s go change and meet the city.” Shawn smile at you,making you happy and jumping from the sofa,looking go some new clothes.

You get in the small bathroom,with you clothes and when you start to close the door,it opens and Shawn come inside.
“Excuse me?” He don’t respond you,just put his hands on your waist,pulling you closer and kissing you. “Ok,what was that for?” You ask him smiling.
“You are here for five days already,and we didn’t have any alone time. Do you have any idea how fucking hard is it?” He answer close to your ear,giving you goosebumps.
“Believe me love, I know how fucking hard is it!” You said right before kissing him back.
His hands went all over you body while you intertwine your fingers on his thick hair.
“Shawn and Y/N,what are you doing?” You both stop when heard Geoff voice and his knock on the door.
“Nothing!” You answer at the same time Shawn says “Fuck off Geoff!” You both hear Geoff and Josh laughing.
“It’s okay lovebirds,we are leaving you two alone for a while! Thank me later Shawn!”
You smile with your face burning,probably looking like a tomato,which make Shawn smile at you.

How is it July already? 😮 Where is the time flying? Pls stop I didn’t sign up for this 😭
🌼
Seeing that we’re halfway through with the year, I thought I would show you my top 5 books of the year (so far 😛)
I haven’t been reading as much as I would have liked, but I’m trying not to let this get to me too much. Reading is still reading, no matter how much or how little of it I’m actually doing. ❤
🌼
In no particular order:
* The Martian by Andy Weir
* It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
* The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon
* A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas
* Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I love all these books so damn much, I can’t even ❤

I'm playing Persona 5 with a guide and I'm already fucking stressed out on April 23. I missed a day to read a book by deciding to study instead and it fucked up the whole schedule, and then instead of going to the Palace i did a part time job. Like I'm really behind and I'm at the palace. The guide I'm following expects me to be done with the first Palace by the 22nd and I'm only half way there. Please help.

don’t use a guide

just play the game

i

my adhd is wishing so so badly that i can do great things and accomplish my dreams, but i Just Simply Can’t™,because first i have to play stimulating games for 5 hours, pick my skin while daydreaming for one hour, and then take a long pointless nap because all that hyperfocusing on nothing wore me out

my adhd is wanting to read that book but i’ve already lost interest by the time i flipped to page 1. i haven’t read a single word of it yet but i already want to sidetrack. i come back to the book maybe 6 months later and i somehow magically read the entire thing in one sitting. i think “why can’t i be able to do that every day? if this is what it’s like to be neurotypical then sign me the fuck up”

my adhd is constantly wanting to write, but i have to be in a special state of mind and my mind has to NOT be craving short bursts of mindless stimulation. i can’t control my mind. i try so hard to get in the special state of mind, but it only comes maybe once an entire month if i’m lucky. i envy neurotypicals who constantly are motivated and pump out new work every day. it must be hella wicked and magical to not have adhd.

my adhd makes my life dull and meaningless.

reasons why varjak paw > warrior cats
  • there’s only two books (with a 3rd one coming in the future)
  • there are only 37 characters, as opposed to 1000+ characters
  • the books are illustrated!!! and the illustrations are really good!!! also, the text and pictures are formatted so that the most dramatic scenes look really cool
  • the main premise of the books is that a young cat is bullied by his family, and his house is occupied by a strange man with suspicious intentions. he escapes and embarks on a journey to find someone to help his family and also to find why cats have been disappearing all over the city. if that doesn’t convince you to read the books idk what will
  • cat martial arts!!! and cat gang wars!!!
  • you’d be surprised how well the books and all the characters are written? i have read both of the books like 5 times and it never gets boring
  • the cast of characters is really diverse, and the author managed to make each of them really interesting
  • you don’t have to spend 5 hours in google trying to figure out cat genetics and breeds because the author already did that for you (with a couple of errors but i mean that’s excusable) + there’s no weird inconsistent or incestuous family relations
  • there’s lore that’s WAY more interesting that wc’s
  • interspecies relationships! we get a dog character who has an interesting back story and a really cute friendship with the main character!
  • the main villain is interesting and doesn’t have an underwhelming sob story and there’s also a good redemption arc
  • there’s a cat with canon odd eyes meanwhile the erins are struggling to remember what was crowfeather’s or dovewing’s or mothwing’s eye color
  • the cats have accents
  • two unfeeling robot characters managed to make me cry
  • if you’re not convinced yet, know that there’s a character called Little Jessie who is the smallest cutiepie but she also fought cats twice her own size alongside her gang

anyway i’m sure there’s more that i’m forgetting but please. go read varjak paw it will not disappoint

홍천기 first impressions

홍천기 is the newest book by 정은궐, the author of the books that were later made into drams ‘Sungkyungkwan Scandal’ and ‘The Moon that Embraces the Sun’. This book is set in the 1437ad , during the Joseon dynasty. Obviously it’s not written in the Korean of the time, but the language used is the kind you’d likely hear in a Sageuk. I picked it up to get some exposure to that kind of vocabulary.

After reading the first 50 or so pages, these are some of the things that stood out to me:

  • The vocabulary is hard. I have to look up a lot of words. My naver vocab list is already 5 pages long. Lots of hanja based vocabulary is used.
  • Lots of words that don’t have a direct translation, names of buildings or tools used during that time. Names of god and mythical beings.
  • Lots of advanced grammar that is usually hard to find in other types of media. 거늘, 리 만무하다. 
  • Other level 4~6 comes up fairly often. 셈이다. 음에도 불구하다, 셈치고 등등
  • Written in an interesting but slightly confusing way. I feel like these are many jumps from one main protagonist to the other.

From what I’ve seen so far I would not recommend this book to people who want to learn “useful” Korean or anybody who’s not already very comfortable with advanced Korean grammar and vocabulary. I recommend it if you like historical dramas and are interested in traditional Korean culture. I’ve definitely learned a lot while reading this.

Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3 /Part 4

“Why are you not coming with me?”, Sehun asked you while pacing in front of you.”Sehun, I can’t just leave everything like this and travel with you and your parents, who are pontecially dangerous”.”But you’d be with me”.”I can’t Sehun”.”What do you want to come with me?”, he asked while placing his hand on the book that you were reading, you slapped his hand away, “nothing, why do you keep insisting?”, “we’ve traveled together so many times before”, “yeah, but now it’s different”, “how so?”, “now your parents think we’re dating”, “there’s not gonna have that much difference”.

“Y/N! At least for the weekend! You can get back on monday”, you looked at him considering it while he tried to ask cutely, but falling it while he shaked you, “Sehun! Oh my god, stop it! You’re such a kid, seriously.I’ll talk to my parents”, he stopped immediately and smiled “I knew it”, “uhum, sure”, “what’s wrong with you today? you’re all intelectual”, he said while grabbing your book.

I can’t believe yet that at jibcon I saw a jm2 op where one girl showed them ‘’the treesome handbook’’, and jared suddenly took the book from her hand and said: I’ve already read it! LOL he was really enthusiastic about the whole thing, like a 5 years old :’D… meanwhile jensen and misha were trying to stay serious but failed, they kept to smiling and giggling at each other all the time,  jensen smirk at misha and then he turned away, he was trying to avoid the book’s argument…while jared was literally freaking out about it…. was pretty gross seriously. then the photo was taken and jared goes with his “omg I love it’’ face” jensen with his “wtf I’m reading’’ face and misha just looked away, was really awkward LOL

anonymous asked:

A flash of movement caught my eye, I peered at her. She was one of those theater girls, dressed to be proper. Her thick, black rimmed glasses framed her dark hair, making her look sharp as she skimmed through her notebook. Quite obviously, she was a writer. Her ink pen dipped and swirled smoothly across the page, pausing at times. I wanted to talk to her, but as quickly as she had appeared, she stood and left the library. I sighed heavily, turning away. Maybe another time. (book description ask)

aghdjrll i didn’t expect anyone to do this but thaNk you !!! this is… i would 11/10 read this again. (also this is scarily accurate r i p (except i do not wear glasses but ‘tis a small detail)
