Do I Look Familiar? Pt. 6

I Don't Like The Locator

For those of you who are new here, my posts titled "Do I Look Familiar?" are about my search for my biological family.

I don't personally know Troy Dunn, the PI who hosts the Locator show, but I don't like him. When I saw the show advertised for the first time, I was excited. Yay, a show about finding lost people, including lost biological families. Since I have been searching for mine, I thought perhaps I could get some advice on ways to proceed with my search. My Hus and kids even encouraged me to apply to be on the show. With much hesitation, I did apply to the show. Hus and kids love the show. At first I found it too depressing, because of the lack of progress in my own search, to watch more than partial episodes. But then, after a while, I figured out what a joke the show is.The Locater doesn't ever locate anyone that you or I couldn't find with Internet access or a phone book. Of course HE needs his jet plane to FLY him to these people. Pahleeze! He always starts his searches out already knowing a key piece of information. Like a NAME! If I knew the names of my bio family, I could have, with a lot of time and energy, found them myself. Even if my bio mothers name is Mary Smith, I could conceivably find her. Of course I haven't heard anything back from the show. I'm sure my case would be too hard for them. I mean the viewers wouldn't want to watch a show about a challenging case. Right? Jerks.

As for the real private investigator I hired back in February, I haven't heard anything. I at least have faith that they are looking, since they don't get paid unless they find someone.

Well that's all for today's bitching session.

sheesh! I'm so sorry you have to go through that. Those shows are seriously retarded. I hate when they act all cool because they figured out how to google.

Lame.

I know your search is hard and frustrating. Hey you never know, Mr. Leer Jet just may give you a call, then he'll see your file and be like "um, no, wait, we cannot do this..." LOSER! By the way I have not seen this show, but can imagine what a lame guy he is. Heres to hoping your PI finds something, you never know. xoxoxoxo

This is surely the most heartbreaking thing to happen to a child. To look for her bio parents. I hope you find them.

I haven't ever watched it, since I watch very little television. I hope you find what you're looking for.

I think I may have told you that I have a different biological father from my mother's first marriage. My mother did not want me to find him. I was 37 when he found me. It wasn't all I thought it would be.

Of course, my Dad legally adopted me when I was 2 years old, and I love him to pieces, so it wasn't as big a deal for me as it may be for you. For me, it was curiosity. His 6 children from his second marriage and his wife were, shall we say, less than thrilled to see me enter into their reality.

Just a quick update, went to the loser-cator's page. Let me sat I am so not one to judge others at all. Really, not ever. But you are so right, and I agree he seems to be a true blue non-locator. Still waiting for your real PI to find something soon. xoxoxoxo
