One for the Books


Finally snow!!!!!

Oh my word, I'm so giddy I can hardly contain myself.  It's going to be a loooonnnggggg day at work!!

Wanted to share a quick story with you today:

One day, a "happy, happy, happy" teacher strolled into her classroom, settled in at her desk with her Diet Dr. Pepper and B*jangles breakfast sandwich and logged in to her email.

As she was browsing, an invoice email from Am*zon caught her eye.

Although this wasn't that unusual, she knew that she had not ordered any K*ndle books recently.

The teacher flipped open the email, only to discover that she had been charged $19.99 for an online purchase.

Someone had hacked her account!!!!

Upon further investigation, the teacher discovered that the purchase was made at around 10pm (when the teacher and her children were snoozing away supposed to be in bed) and was made while in the app "Temple R*n."

Suspicious, she kept probing and discovered that 250,000 (yes, thousand) coins had been purchased in the Temple R*n game.

Disgruntled, the teacher waited until that afternoon and immediately went to see where the tablets were.

What???  Seriously??? 

It appeared that a young, witty 4-year-old (we won't name names here) had a tablet smuggled into her room. . .

Ahhh. . .I think the mystery is solved!

Apparently, while moms and dads are sleeping, we sneak out, grab a tablet, and play Temple R*n until we crash.

I am happy to say that after about a twenty minute online chat with the Am*zon specialists, the credit card account was refunded the $19.99.  The teacher was happy she didn't actually see the specialist cracking up.

And all is well once again.

Moral of the Story:
   1)  NEVER underestimate the power of a four year old.

   2)  Choose harder passwords.

(Oh, and, just for the record, I love you Harley-bug!!!!)
