Psychic Powers

I saw this photo and it reminded me of a woman I knew named Sue, that used to work for the Psychic Friends Network. She was a nice person that, I’ll only say, was just a little odd at times. She had also taken a mystical sounding name and was using it when she talked to her telephone customers.


The Psychic Friends Network was a company that did a lot of infomercials on TV starring singer Dionne Warwick in the 1990’s when the 900 number business was first getting popular. A few years later the bottom fell out of the Psychic Friends business and they closed and disappeared. Not long after that Sue came over to visit and told us that she had just been laid off from her job at Psychic Friends.

I smiled wryly and said, “Didn’t you see that coming?

Not thinking much about it, she said “No.”
