I'm very gullible, and I've no doubt over-compensated for it as I've gotten older, to the point where I'm probably more skeptical than I should be. I won't buy anything where I've been solicited, as opposed to me seeking it out in the first place.

I have one exception to this, and that's the case of kids selling things outside the grocery store ... cookies or candy or whatever. I'm a total sucker for them .. lol .. I'll buy whatever they're selling, I don't care what it is. Most of the time, I'll buy their box of cookies, give them the money, then just hand them back the cookies.

How's this for irony ...

When I posted my previous message, there was an ad on the page for a "wealth-building seminar".

You have to be pretty gullible to sign up for something like that ... some random thing advertised on a web page, promising to help you build wealth.

Sheesh.

I am very naive and I've always fallen for jokes and it takes me forever to get the jist when people are bullshitting with me. And I've spent most of school being tricked by the populars, I think it comes from not reading the signs too well. I can see myself getting into financial mess with crappy builders or getting into trouble with people because of my naivete and vunerability when I'm finally living on my own.

Yes, there is this guy who always makes jokes that I always fall for. Although he was in a car accident so he doesn't have a lot of facial features or different tone of voice.
