One of these things is not like the others
I am trying to decide which of these two statements is the most off-putting:
- Someone is trying to fool people into spending Astral Shards on the wrong kind of motes
- I accidentally bought 200 of the wrong kind of motes
Yes, I am that guy who stupidly bought the wrong thing with the right money. I can only imagine the dude (because it has to be a dude, right?) cackling in glee as he detaches his newly won Astral Shards from the auction house while mocking whatever idiot was stupid enough to buy them.
Hello world, stupid idiot here.
I’m not mad. I mean, I regret that the world creates the kind of people who run real estate scams, or pyramid schemes, or sell nutrition supplements. But ultimately, these people exist because we empower them. We buy their crappy swampland. We pay into their get-rich-quick investment plans. And we buy enough supplements to support a $60 billion industry.
So we have no one to blame but ourselves. Somewhere, right now, someone must be buying a money order to send to some stranger in Nigeria who promises that he will wire more money back in return. Someone must be; otherwise they’d stop sending us all those emails.
So I’m not mad. It’s almost kind of funny. Ha ha! Except when I do that out loud my wife looks at me funny.
So I click too fast. So I don’t play close attention. This is how I become the not-so-proud owner of 200 more Motes of Night. Even though I have probably 10 or 20,000 of them already, and not a single one can be spent on anything. Maybe ever.
I am such an idiot. But you don’t have to be. Actually read the name of the motes you are buying. You want Lost Motes. Not Motes of Night. Even if they look the same.
As for me, not to worry, I may be forever an idiot but I have other charms. For instance, two of my fingers are double-jointed!
