Too Good To Be True

I was just thinking the other day, I know a dangerous thing, has society become so bombarded by scams that we think anything remotely good sounding is too good to be true?

The whole King Tut wanting to give you his fortune thing or you winning a lottery in a country you have never even stepped foot in thing, is obviously scams. But what about that dream job? You see the job ad and could think it is a scam. You see some ad on some dating site, think the individual sounds great, whoops, scam voice kicks in and you ignore them.

Maybe a fear of chance is what it really is? The fear of the what if. Granted there are weirdos a plenty on dating sites, the cat has proven that. But not everything has to have a deeper meaning, even though we do seem to apply one to it.

Maybe it’s just me and my writer brain that does it. I make up a good 10 theories and most of them aren’t positive ones. Sadly, usually one of them is right. Such as the job was put up by someone looking to get something for nothing or by someone who wants to work you 60 hours a week.

The dating sites I don’t even have to explain, nuts abound there. You can view the cat or Robyn for proof on that fact. It will save you the trouble of finding out on your own.

So, have we become more “no way” rather than “maybe” or “could be true” thanks to all the scams? Do you think things that are too good to be true usually are? I do on the later, usually right too, but once in a while you just never know what can occur.

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

I think for every pessimist colored by experience there’s sucker out there just waiting to be licked. Sadly. It is sad that we have to be so suspicious, but some of the things that have caused suspicions are still reigning in people who can’t think logically.

Sounds like you’ve had another bad work lead. I hope you can find the right thing soon, but I hope you keep doing the write thing while you look. 🙂
