Oh No She Didn’t!!!

Let me calm down for a minute before I complete this post…. Okay, I’m calm. Yesterday a young college student looking to earn money for a scholarship came to my house asking if we would sign up for a magazine subscription. The credit for the magazine would help her score points for her scholarship. Having [...]
