Re: Neptune is lost

Re: Neptune is lost

If that was supposed to be a joke it was not funny!! Seriously what on earth is wrong with some people? I wish you lived in Queensland, I would have my policeman hubby go pay them a visit!

Re: Neptune is lost

I feel so sick, and hurt. They wanted to know why they should give him back, that he was on their shoulder and such a great bird and talks I was so stunned and trying to answer when they hung up. I texted back I pay them, or buy them a baby quaker. They texted back it was a joke and they are sorry

Re: Neptune is lost

freaking middle school/junior high schoolers I bet-- if they are making it up...did you star 67 it? or 69? whatever it is..? It still seems odd that they would wait after most of the flyers are down..but who knows...it's possible that it was a prank, but also possible that it wasn't-- I'd look up that number.

Re: Neptune is lost

well, they are sh*tty and I would still investigate (just in case). Some of the worst people with half-baked brains have no idea how cruel they can be (because, apparently, being a sadist is hilarious between the ages of 12 and 16), but also, sometimes kids lie to get reactions if they aren't sure what to do...So I wouldn't get your hopes too high, but I'd also keep investigating the call.

Re: Neptune is lost

It was just one guy on the call, no background noise, didn't sound like it was speaker or anything.

He said " I just want you to know I have your quaker , and I love him" he us sitting on my shoulder right now, he loves to talk. " I said some in shock jabbering, sbd he said " Why should I give him back? " I said I love him I hs c e had him from a baby and he hung up.

Then texted was a joke tgey she my flyer.
I texted I would pay or buy them a parrot. Texted back sorry they would buy me a bird. I texted I just want Neptune, I would pay 800 bucks, or buy them a baby quaker. Texted back sorry truly was a joke dont have the bird, and hope I find him

Re: Neptune is lost

This almost sounds like maybe this kid was using his parent's phone and they are hugely embarrassed by his behaviour in cruelly pranking you, the way they are talking to you. I hope he is getting his butt kicked right now!

Re: Neptune is lost

It didn't sound like a kid.
He was serious. Didn't say hello. Just that he wanted to let me know he had my quaker. Not my burd, not my parrot , but my quaker. They flyer says lost bird, it does say quaker farther down. And tge typical attitude we here from everyone here who finds a parrot. Why should he give him back?

Why would a boy doing a joke say he loves him?,
