A Word for the Wise T.I. - Dastardly Double Digit Delemma Redux

Problem: Targeted Individuals awareness of the prevalence of double digits on the cashier receipts.

General Background: Some paranoid schizophrenics focus on double digits. Furthermore, number focusing is also typical of individuals with heightened feelings of hopelessness.

Purpose: To trick TIs into focusing on, and talk about seeing double digit numbers.

Goal: To discredit TI and have TI declared insane, depressed and/or paranoid schizophrenic.

This has the added benefit of providing plausible deniability when a TI suicide. TI suicide is either a final attempt to get away from relentless electronic torture from remote directed energy weapons, or it is murder disguised to look like suicide.

To make scenario a reality it is therefore incumbent upon perps to trick TIs into noticing double digits when they shop. This way, if a TI has an inexplicable death, it can be said that the TI frequently expressed concern over numbers and was therefore suicidal.

How: Double-digit focusing TIs have **already** been EH & OS sensitized to notice double digits from being tricked and harassed to look at their clocks when the time includes double digits, making it more likely they will notice double digits on some of their cashier receipts. (See my October 2, 2008 blog called Dastardly Double Digit Dilemma.) This is further reinforced when caravans of perp cars bearing license plates with double digits, surround and/or precede TIs as TIs travel from one destination to another.

Non-itemized cash receipts can easily be keyed to have a double digit figure total. In that case, either the cashier may intentionally be keying the double digit figure or, the cashier machine may have been rigged so as to be remotely electronically cued to produce double digit figures when TIs shop at that store. Since it is likely that every town has more than one TI, this is a cost effective way to frighten all of that store’s TI customers.

Solutions: First determine if the grand total on the receipt is coincidental or a perp tactic.

Use a shopping list when you shop. As you select items off of the shelves write the price of each item on your list. If you buy something not on your list, add that item to the list before moving on to select the next item.

After the receipt is rung up, check to see that the printed charges match the prices for each item. This is easy because you wrote down the prices as you shopped. This step ensures against unsupportable charges aren't on your receipt.

Once at home, first make sure that the items listed on your shopping list equals both that listed on the receipt as well as the actual items you take out of your shopping bag.

Next, manually do the addition for all of the items to see if the double digit bearing total is correct. Take the time to double-check you manual addition.

Next, triple-check the math using an adding machine or calculator. Remember that a desktop widget calculator or an Internet calculator can be easily hacked while you are on-line doing the math.

If the total on the cashier receipt proves to be the correct figure, then you know that its double digit figure is coincidental and to be laughter at, better yet, to be ignored. But if your careful triple-checked calculations reveal a different figure than that on the cashier receipt, then you know the cashier and/or the cashier machine was compromised to produce a double digit figure.

If the latter is the case you can go back to the store for a refund if you can prove that an error has been made. And if it undercharged you in order to have a double-digit figure, you can enjoy the irony of the situation and not feel concern.

Whatever your efforts reveal, have a good laugh and get on with your life because A Word to the Wise TI should be sufficient.
