This woman's 'psychic reading' proves once and for all that it's total garbage
In a world besieged by bad news and minor inconveniences, it's nice to lay our trust in the stars. Certainly, bemoaning mistakes after blaming them on the mercury retrograde is far more satisfying than being open about your shortcomings. Regardless of whether you're a Leo or Capricorn, there's bound to be a celestial event at any given moment which can explain - or at least shed light on your current situation - whether that be relationship strife or financial woes.
One woman, however, recently fell prey to a rather dodgy physic reading. And while she may have skipped out on a tenner, the comedic relief that it provided the people of the internet with was invaluable.
Earlier this month, 19-year-old Niamh Gargan from Glasgow got in touch with a Facebook "psychic" and paid her £10 to read her fortune. Unfortunately, Niamh didn't get the results she so desired.
After the psychic instructed Niamh to send a picture of herself, she informed her that "You're into beauty and hair, you love having a natural tan, you're feeling fresh. You love banana and chocolate milkshake smoothies. You always have teeth whitening for your teeth. You want to settle down with someone."
Niamh realised pretty quickly that this so-called "psychic" was a phoney, and asked her to say something "spiritual" before giving in and asking for a refund because the reading was "obviously fake".
The unidentified mystic was not best pleased, and replied "It's not fake. I am in the middle of doing it. Sorry. Takes a lot of energy, hunnie."
Niamh ended up apologising, and the psychic continued the whole future-telling business. However, this time around it was even more unsuccessful - after asking the 19-year-old whether she had an aunt who had died, Niamh replied saying that she didn't even have an aunt in the first place.
The "psychic" then decided to go for a weirdly specific prediction asserting, "Someone died that was close to you, bought you Easter eggs all the time. And hair clips."
Niamh told the woman that she didn't know anyone who fit that description, before the fortune-teller informed her that she's "always bored".
At this point, the teen had understandably had enough, and sent the psychic a link to her PayPal account to get a refund. But the spirits refused to desist, with the woman jumping in again to tell Niamh, "I see you are going to be pregnant."
Niamh replied saying that she can't have children, only to be told: "You adopted one." Fed up by the whole ordeal, Niamh simply responded: "Can you refund me my £10 before I report as this is a scam".
Speaking about the experience, Niamh admitted that she found the whole thing rather amusing. "I felt like an idiot but I couldn't stop laughing at my own stupidity and the things she was coming out with," she stated. "I think she was just saying the first thing that came into her head."
Well, I don't know about you but I wish I had someone who brought me easter eggs all the time, and of course, hair clips too.
