the strange case of the rapidly dropping hubscore

Updated on November 30, 2009

robbed blind and left with a broken heart

I remember the day I was robbed.It was a few years back and it was mostly my fault for being too kind hearted.Me and my girlfriend at the time was on the ends and outs of our relationship,and we tried to hold on to each other but there was really nothing we could do we had grown apart and aside from having great sex the bond was gone,so we became friends with benefits and decided to see other people and basically move on with our lives.Only problem with that situation is when she left she also left behind her cousin,A pretty cool cat who I would let sleep on my couch from time to time,he was always running in and out of town and he would show up ever so often and crash on the couch for a day or two and then leave.Well a few months passed and I reentered the dating game and moved on with my life,then one night out of the blue there is a knock at the door,its her cousin two duffel bags on the porch,I welcomed him in.I explained to him that me and his cousin had broken up and was basically over with,but he could still get the couch for a couple of days.A couple of days turned into a couple of weeks a couple of weeks turned into months,I tried everything in my power to find ole boy a job but he didn't want to work.He assumed that because me and his cousin was still bumping uglies every once in a while that he could stay as long as he wanted to.Finally I had to tell him to leave,I told him "you have to make your own way in this world.If you don't work you don't eat."I gave him a few dollars so he could get a hotel room are whatever and that was that.Or so I thought,he returned one morning while I was at worked and broke intomy house stole my stereo my PlayStation my T.V my entire entertainment system.when I came home from work I walked straight through the house and grabbed a soda out of my fridge and the first thing that came out of my mouth was "damn I've been robbed."Thats kind of how I feel about my hub-score which had remained around 89 to 94 for almost a year now then out of no where two days ago,my score dropped to 77.and the only question I have is What the Hell Happened?

      I would really like to know what makes the hub score go up and down like that,don't get me wrong I'm not a hubscore snob and I don't write for adsense dollars so I'm not making any money,but the score was like my little reward for writing here,but to drop from the mid-nineties to 77??I would love to know what causes that to happen!
