My Mother-in-law:Her Humor

My mother-in-law passed away about 10 years ago.
She had a unique humor.

Every time when I hear about hacking, especially
targeting old people, I think about her.

She used to receive calls like, “I would like to have
you tell me your credit card number.”

She would have said, “All right! I love numbers,
What are your credit card numbers? I will tell you some
long number if you will tell me your credit
card numbers. By the way,
my neighbor is tracking this call and our
county sheriff officer will get you. Let’s keep this
conversation going for a long time.”

So, hackers would have hung up the phone.
She worked at the telephone company,
that's why she could carry out this kind of conversation, which
regular old people could not even think of.

She knew many old sayings, too.
I will tell you one example.

She told our son,” Women are like buses.
If you wait on the corner long enough another
will come by soon. “

I miss her. She was a fun person.

ユーモアを解する、楽しいお姑様だったのですね。
電話でクレジットカードの番号を聞き出す詐欺は、日本でも横行してますが、機智に富んだ受け答えをするお年寄りが相手では、悪いことをする人も、尻尾を巻いて逃げてしまうでしょうね。

いいカモ

義母にとっては、hackerもいいカモだったのかしら。
でも、今の世の中、色々なことに気をつけなければなりませんね。

メッセージを聞くまで、電話はとらななど、皆、いろいろ気をつけているようです。アルツハイマーなどになる暇など、ないぞえ。
