I get a lot of SPAM, which I usually delete, if my SPAM filter doesn’t catch it first.
But one in particular I get repeatedly.
It’s always titled “A Place For Mom”, and comes from….shockingly…..www.aplaceformom.com.
Regardless of how many times I change the filter settings or put it on the “block” list, it still slips through.
The message says it’s “The Nation’s Largest Free Elder Care Referral Service”.
Guess that’s like a talent agent for nursing homes.
Which would make them William-Morris or something.
But, maybe they’re trying to tell me something.
Like they know something I don’t.
Like they threatening to injure my mom.
Maybe they are planning to send the boys out to rough up mom, thereby drumming up new business.
They should be ashamed!
My mom is a wonderful lady.
She is in good health. She lives on her own. She still drives. She works at a job every day. She’s barely even Social Security age.
She’s not ready for an old folks home.
Sure, she might eventually need help or someone to care for her.
Then, I might consider letting her move in with me……while I drove her to the nearest nursing home.
But really, I have two older sisters who would make that decision.
I am the FAVORITE, afterall.
THEY could decide whether to let her live with THEM, or send her off to a home.
I'm going to start forwarding them the SPAM.
Just in case.
