Social Security and Pensions / Re: Why Smart People Take Social Security at 62
« Last post by tocho45 on June 16, 2019, 01:19:24 AM »
Yes it's a smart thing to do to retire and collect social security monthly annuity at the age 62. But beside social security its good to have other income like IRA annuity,Military pension or income property to live comfortably.

Chuckle, chuckle. Thought the same thing, as I did have similar experiences before, and to a lessor extent after, we were married.

I said to the wife early on, "I'd prefer when you think I've pi***d you off, you shout at me". It works - sort of.  :)

Now when I see/feel a bit of Tampo coming on (that's not very often a couple of time a year maybe), I say to her, "Shout at me!". She normally bursts out laughing and says, "You shouldn't have done xxxxx/whatever." So I apologise, well grovel really. ;) ;) and then everything is smiles again.

Our daughter was told at a very early age (by me) that tampo is childish, and if she's upset tell us. It was quite funny when she was little, as an 8 year old, she was telling her Ate's not to be so childish. I couldn't stop laughing when the wife told me.  :) :) :) So I hope that some guy in the future will not be subjected to Filipina tampo from my daughter. LOL!

If everyone teaches their children that tampo is childish, then maybe a tampo-free Philippines is on the horizon. I also believe in unicorns.  ;D ;D

Unicorns may be a possibility, as for the other.....dream on buddy  8)

When I saw this "You're not learning. You need to fix this. This is not healthy." , I immediately thought, Good luck with that approach.

Brit/Oz/Euro Info Centre / Re: UK Bank New Security Checks

I received this message from my UK bank, Lloyds, on 3rd June.

Spoke too soon  ::)

My thoughts on this are; 

It will probably never be gone completely.  It is part of the building blocks of who the person is.  It really sucks and seems unfair when it it occurring.  Remember,  it is mostly just in the thoughts and mind and can usually pass in some time.  If nothing really bad is occurring just keep her safe and then try to detach and use the time for self improvement of any kind.  As you will have a little bit of extra free time may as well use it for something useful and also to keep your mind off of it.  She will either be back(emotionally) or not.  It is up to her.

One thought,  is that this probably does not occur unless she really likes you... 

I don't mean that if this never happens that the lady doesn't like you.   Just usually if it does occur it would usually only be if the lady does like you a lot.

The choices are to try to force her to not do it (good luck on that). But it can still be occurring inside her where you do not see it....

Or try to control/manage self so as to not be so much bothered by it,  also not easy.

Tampo is a feature of every culture. It is a sign of emotional immaturity and limited intellect. As the emotional level of Pinays is about 10YO on average you just have to develop a mechanism for dealing with Tampo. It is useless just to tell the woman not to "tampo".  That is as useful as telling a tiger to lose it's stripes.
Having been immersed in the Philippines culture for the last 28 years, I sadly agree with everything you just said.

Brit/Oz/Euro Info Centre / UK Bank New Security Checks
« Last post by Peter on June 13, 2019, 11:15:30 AM »
Guys,

I received a notice from my bank (actually it was the second, so I've just checked with the bank to make sure it's kosher) that they would shortly be implementing a new security check as part of new banking regulations.

A partial quote from the Bank's email
"
A new regulation means that all banks will add extra security checks to help protect you from fraud online. You might see these checks when you shop online, log in to Internet Banking, and when you change or add to the list of people you pay from your account.

If youíre not prepared, you wonít be able to shop or bank online. So, make sure you know how to be ready for this change.

You already enter your card details when you use it to buy something online, and your login details when you use Internet Banking. But soon, youíll need to take another step as well.

It will mean doing one of the three things below:
   
1. Use our Mobile Banking app to confirm itís you.
   
2. Enter a passcode we send by text to your mobile phone.

3. Tell us the code you see on your shopping checkout screen when we call your landline.

" Unquote

If you haven't received something similar from your UK bank, it may be worth checking with them.

One thing I was informed by BoS/Halifax some time ago, their mobile banking app cannot be downloaded to, or used by, Philippines' registered mobile numbers.
