A friend just wired me $600 out of nowhere for two of us to go down to sunny Florida in the middle of January! I haven't ever taken a vacation without the ex-wife and kid! Man this is going to get dangerous!

You know I'm in a good mood when each and everyone of these gender jokes makes me laugh.

I thought this thread was going to be about wishing people a merry christmas followed by an expletive. :(

By the way, the conservative in me has to remind you - it's not really FREE - your friend is simply covering the COSTS for you... :p

Tampa area actually. Planning on going the second week of January. Just waiting for the money from Paypal and to hear back from another friend who will be traveling with me.

Is your friend Nigerian? Did he wire you more than the trip costs so that you can send him cash for the extra...

Be careful....

Is it also part of the conservative ethos to be a fucking killjoy?

He should get his own account instead of having you act as his typist. :shrug:

OK Something fishy is going on. So he called me up yesterday morning and asked for my paypal account address. I gave it to him and he transferred $50 bucks over just as a gift. I thought nothing of it as I have helped him out multiple times with room and board, etc. Then he brought up the visit and it still sounded all good. He transferred $600 over to get two round trip tickets.

This morning he tells me that Alan (the other guy he wanted to come) couldn't make it and that I could either invite someone else or pocket the extra money to spend while I'm down there. Then he transferred another $150 into my account. What do you guys think is up? I know he said that he was on the brink of signing a record deal but he would have told me if he had done that.

... or your friend needs a drug mule.

Be very wary if he asks you to drive his "special" car back rather than flying.

1) he's dying
2) maybe he wants you to have some fun! Invite a friend or have fun spending it while you're there.

Sounds like a good friend to me, not fishy.

OK my friend has recently been doing some pretty hard drugs (I've already had a few talks with him about quitting so we don't need to get into all that) and he is a scientologist
So either:
a. The theory on his death is true (He actually mentioned over the phone a week or so ago that he thought he would die soon)
b. This is some elaborate ruse to get me in a Temple of Doom type situation where Tom Cruise will try and rip my still beating heart out of my chest.
c. He just wants me to have a good time and misses me.

If it is b then it was a pleasure to know most of you.

.....so how 'open' do your feel? I'm just asking, since this sounds like one of those, 'getaway to get to know you better' trips. :lol:

Scientologist, eh? Are you going to Clearwater? That's where their headquarters are.

My two hypotheses:

1) He got the record contract, but wanted to tell you once you were down there.

2) He is looking for some female companionship and is willing to pay nicely for it. Now that the other guy is out of the picture (potential cock-block), he figures you are worth an extra $150.

Uhmm, well, yeah.

I've known this guy and his family for about 8 years. In that whole time I only had one conversation with him about Scientology and it should have been quite clear that there is no way I would ever join.
