Today I found out about the Puppy Scam.
Some awful person will put an puppy-for-adoption ad and will basically ask all the right questions - Are you familiar with dogs? Do you now how to take proper care of this animal? Do you have a home that is suitable for a dog?). Most of the times there is even a sad backstory about some relative dying and leaving the dogs.
Then they will say that all they need is for you to pay for the proper transportation of said animal.
I was lucky to be suspicious of everything, but there are several people around the world that are not aware and fall for these scams.
Can you imagine the pain of being tricked by this? All you want is a puppy to love and this person tries to take advantage of you for being an awesome animal-lover person.
please spread awareness
P.S.: know that, if you fell for a scam, it’s not your fault: we are conditioned to expect the best from other people.
We usually expect from others what we do/are ourselves, so if you got tricked for trusting another person, it probably means you are a good person.
I’VE BEEN STARING AT THIS FOR 2 MINUTES AND 44 SECONDS AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT I WAS EXPECTING FROM THIS NOW I’M JUST MAD
I’M AT 5:50 AND IT’S STILL COUNTING
THAT’S A GIF RIGHT? IT NEEDS TO RESTART AT SOME POINT AND I WILL BE THERE TO WATCH IT!!! 8:39
MY HOPES WERE ON 10:00 BUT I GUESS IT WAS WRONG OF ME… 11:13
GUYS ITS 12 HOURS LONG
IDK WHAT I’M GETTING MYSELF INTO BUT I’M REBLOGGING IT
Pokemon X and Y Wondertrade Christmas!
Make kids starting their new games on Christmas happy by sending them some useful Pokemon or little items! You might get a Pokemon without use for you back, but someone somewhere will be really happy about the things you sent!
No one expects you to send your precious items. Please think back to when you were young and playing the games. How precious was a rare candy to a lot of us? Or how great would it be to get an Eevee that is holding a fire or water stone and can be evolved into Flareon or Vaporeon? Make them smile and reblog if you like this idea :)
This is perfect! :)
I took this picture cause I knew this story was tumblr worthy.
So I had been sitting in my big white van behind the lowell building, not going to class, and staring happily at a brick wall.
out of the corner of my eye, i notice a man coming up the alley, slow down a little past the car, but ultimately keep going.
the term ‘weirdo’ passed my mind, and I locked the doors even though any actual threat was minimal, and soon I was staring at the wall again.
Not less than 5 minutes later I heard a knocking at the passenger side window. I look over, and it’s the same weirdo who walked by the car before; Except now he looked particularly nervous and had his nose pressed against the glass.
I should mention that I never felt particularly frightened of this man. he was quite skinny, and seemed extremely skittish and fearful both when I saw him starting up the alley, and now, as he knocked.
Anyway, I rolled down the window slightly and asked “can I help you?” with one eyebrow raised and a general look of confusion.
he gestured at me with his chin, and said with an equally confused tone “you…eh…you…sex?”
We had a moment of silence.
Eyebrow still raised, and before I knew what was coming out of my mouth, I raised both my hands, shook my head and said “I’m wearing mittens”.
He immediately started shaking his head up and down as if he understood, and practically started sprinting away.
I lowered my hands after a minute and I….
I can’t tell which is funnier: The fact that this strange man thought I was some sort of portable hooker, parking my van behind churches and waiting for patrons, or that my proof against being a hooker was the fact that I was wearing mittens.
this is one of the strangest interactions between two confused human beings i’ve ever heard of
<—- Drag the picture! —>
OMG IT ACTUALLY WORKED!
That’s actually really fucking cool!
I WAS JUST WAITING TO SEE A POST SO COOL LIKE THIS
NOW I CAN DIE IN PEACE
I’ll have you know that this forced me to get out of my bed this morning, because it wasn’t working on phone tumblr
This pleases me greatly.
