Stupid Criminals...

Currently Reading: Still on the Show Business one...and will buy another e-book in the morning:)

Here's another one for the 'stupid file'. Did you hear about this one?

A woman in Michigan actually advertised for a hit man. And gave out her phone number/email address.

And the three people who took her seriously turned her in to the FBI, and she is now facing charges.

I mean, sheesh! Has she watched any movies? Read any good books? There are better ways to end your marriage, LEGALLY! Puh-leez...file for divorce; do the honorable thing and stay faithful...but don't try to knock off your married lover's better half...let he or she handle it...LEGALLY...

My favorite stupid criminal is the guy they picked up as a suspect and told the victim they needed a positive ID. Before she said anything, the idiot says, "Yes, sir...that's the woman I robbed."

I guess they provide comedy for the video shows.

Switching gears, I'm proud to say I've set up one signing, in late March. As it gets closer, I'll provide more details. I've also got 3 more calls to make, to three different stores, tomorrow. I also walked into the parts store with hubby and thought I recognized the guy behind the counter. I asked if his wife had had a chance to visit my website, and he smiled and told me it was someone else I had spoken to about the books. After he finished ringing up our purchases, he slid a blank piece of paper my way and said his wife might be interested, and would I write down the information? Note to self: Please remember to put business cards in pocket before leaving the house!

I did have some on hand when I picked hubby up after his eye surgery. Two nurses seemed interested, so I had a great promotion day! Hopefully the motivation/self-confidence will stay for a while:)

Okay, I have you marked down. Email me at brynnpaulin@comcast.net so I have an address to send questions to you.

BTW...though I've threatened it, I wasn't the one advertising for a hitman, lol.

Speaking of criminals...did you hear about the guy in Indiana that robbed a convenience store I believe, stuck the gun in his belt and it went off:)

Molly Daniels said...

Did not hear about that one, LOL:) Another one...

I thought the person who did this (advertised for the hit man) lived near Detroit. Oy! They live about 10 miles away. Sigh...
