DNA tests are a big rip off

Besides getting my results from submitting my saliva over a year ago taking a ridiculous long turn around time, there were no great discoveries where snippets had that already were known, it’s a scam that tries to suck you into buying anything more.

The proverbial bate and switch: one of my greatest pet peeves.

If I want to know more before the dangled carrot, I have to agree to a free trial by submitting my credit card details.

I got my DNA results back today Grandparents Annie & Donald *** marriage certificate from 1919 – Annie**** born in England was 43 and Donald **** was 41: that’s the biggest scandal: that was their age when Dad was born and she was the older woman; he died in 1965 in New Westminster BC

A writer, a blogger, a seeker, a finder; discovering nuances that are unique to those born between 1960 and 1965 .... I write about what appeals to Yuppies who are 50 plus and wanting to be the best of anything and everything! I provide insights and build camaraderie among YUPPIES of the 1980s, an impactful demographic born in the 60s, went into Junior High | Middle School in the mid 70s and graduated from High School 1979, followed by the roller coasters in the 1980s. Regardless of location, religion, gender &or identity, age, culture, beliefs, education or economic standing. Everyone is famous in their own world:: having the starring role.
