i saw this on yahoo headlines today: Kid-finding phones

the cons:

“Of course, a locator service won’t help if your child turns the phone off (or if the battery goes dead.”

“When Katie was supposed to be at a friend’s, her Sprint phone placed her at a nearby mall. Carroll phoned her daughter’s pal’s home and learned that Katie was indeed there.

The problem, according to Sprint: When the phone cannot receive a GPS signal, such as in basements or windowless rooms, locations have to be triangulated from cell-phone towers, which give far cruder readings.” – this was after phones from three different services offering this feature was given to a family with three teenage girls.

the pros:

“GPS is typically accurate to within a few yards, whether your kid is at the end of the block or running away to New York City.”

so, hmmm. The Company tried to give me a cell phone when i started with them. probably for this very reason. but i refused. and waited until my monthly allowance kicked in to buy one myself. i realize they have other ways of keeping tabs on me. theres probably bugs and cameras all over my apartment…

(glancing around said place)

i wonder if spy headquarters is open today.

cmon, come in. im on the case

I Spy Friday: Snitch Tip #8

June 8, 2007 at 1:00 am (Uncategorized)

payment first, information second.

ok, so im sure youve seen those cop shows where the cop tries to get information from a bartender or something and the guy says something like “well, i dunno. he could’ve had brown hair or black hair.” hes a bartender, of course hes seen the perp. hes just stalling because he knows that the info he’s got is important enough to help with the case.

as a snitch, anything and everything you have to say will be very important. always. maybe not at that certain point in time, but it will come in handy later on. i swear. knowledge is power and it comes with a price. make sure you know its worth and the get the moolah before saying a word.

new job

June 7, 2007 at 6:06 pm (life in general, The Job, The Other Job)

kenya.jpg 

okay so you may or may not know but i got a new job at a daycare. no, not The Job (ya know, the one with The Company?), just The Other Job. i had to get away from the manager and the other fluffball employees at charlies muse. i was afraid i was going to turn into one of them: a giggling, gum-chewing, fluffball who only cares about what outfits shes going to buy with her store discount. ugh. so not me. the only fashion i need to know is that i can wear baby phat jeans because they were made for people like me. so, yea i know watching other peoples’ kiddies can be a hassle but its actually quite entertaining!!!  well not at first because on my first day my co-worker, EX-Blonde, totally had a melt down on me and i had no idea what to do!!! so we were cleaning up for the night when out of no where she starts bawling!!!

 “what the heck is wrong with this basketcase??” those were my first thoughts and then next thing i know she has her arms wrapped around me and is sobbing  into my shoulder!!! “um…” those were my exact words. i didnt even know this girls name!!!!! and she must have been able to read my mind because she started apologizing for being such a basket case!! she was saying something about how she hates this job and she wants a cigarette or something. i could barely understand her between the loud crying and the fact that she was still holding on to me. can we say awkward moment, boys and girls??!! 

and no one could save me because it was just the two of us ALONE in the room… um yea. eventually she pulled herself together …BARELY…. and i went home with wet snot on my shoulder from a practical stanger! what triggered this melt down??? good question but i suspect that part of it was from pms but still CAN WE GET A GRIP???? I MEAN COME ON!!!!!  she’s what 20 years old? 19? whatever. i dont know but im sure that this wasnt her first visit from aunt flo (if you know what i mean), if she doesnt know how to control herself now, i dont think she ever will…..*sigh* i love first-day-on-the-job-days.

I Spy Friday: How to Become a Snitch for The Company

May 25, 2007 at 10:47 am (I Spy Friday, The Company)

tk8.jpg 

for the record, here’s the official statement on The Company’s use of informants:

The courts have recognized that the government’s use of informants is lawful and often essential to the effectiveness of properly authorized law enforcement investigations. However, use of informants to assist in the investigation of criminal activity may involve an element of deception, intrusion into the privacy of individuals, or cooperation with persons whose reliability and motivation may be open to question.

Although it is legally permissible for the The Company to use informants in its investigations, special care is taken to carefully evaluate and closely supervise their use so the rights of individuals under investigation are not infringed. The Company can only use informants consistent with specific guidelines issued by the Attorney General that control the use of informants.”

so, about that specific guidelines thing? couldnt tell you what those would be. i dont remember reading about them, or having Chief read them to me when I signed my life away started my new life here.  ive heard they sometimes use teenagers to help them catch online predators. they teach their agents how to talk like teenagers in chat rooms and stuff. doubt they get paid for it. they probably get like a plaque or a certificate. something lame like that.

in my case, you have to upstage The Company. You have to make them look bad, and make their agents seem like bumbling idiots like that inspector dude from the pink panther movies. should The Company ever approach you and offer you a position as a snitch informant, you will want to haggle: “if you want me to do this for you, you have to do something for me.” and make sure its something big. and realistic. i mean, they cant make it so you dont have to pay taxes for the rest of your life. you would have to do something mongo like save the world. but they could buy you a car, a really expensive vacation or college tuition for all 4 years. or, ya know, a whole new life somewhere else (but this might depend on how long theyve been after the criminal in question).

so, stay tuned for next friday when I post a Snitch Tip.

cmon, come in. im on the case.
