Scam’s the Word

Everything in life is, potentially, a scam. Parents? Scam. What’s with them loving me unconditionally, giving birth to me and raising me for two decades, without expecting anything in return?

More Design Required

Well, we finally got our new office interior installed, and now we’re getting a new one. There was a considerable mix-up in the communication chain, since I’ve checked the order form and yes, it does indeed say that we ordered dragon-themed wallpaper. The installation company did call us to confirm, and they said they spoke …
