She went out on dinner dates five nights a week (different guys) for the sole purpose of getting fed, there were doggie bags going home with her but no guys.
Further down the road I don’t expect any successful relationships in her future, she looks at men like a vampire looks at necks.
After Linda Long’s husband died of colon cancer last year, the phone calls poured in. The 68-year-old retired office worker says she got as many as 10 calls a day from a debt-collection firm asking for $16,651.52 that her husband, Millard, had racked up on a Bank of America Corp. credit card.
If the amount owned on the credit card seems high its not unusual for people who are very old and sick, who haven’t worked in a long time and have exhausted their savings to charge food and medicine on their credit cards as long as they can.
Mrs. Long, of Cape Coral, Fla., told the debt collector she had “lost everything.” She had sold the couple’s motor home to help cover medical bills and funeral costs. All that was left, she said, was $2,000 in life-insurance proceeds. “I can give you that,” she said when asked for the money, “anything just to get this off of my head.”
She was not legally obligated to pay her husbands debt, but ten calls a day, day after day, wore her down.
She’s elderly, recently widowed, was not legally responsible and near broke. I could see one phone call to establish that fact and to determine that the man’s estate was flat broke. After that, its elder abuse. Get the bullwhip.
Read ’em and weep.
