My e-mail service puts it all in one place—“Junk”—then deletes it after 10 days. I appreciate this as this means I don’t have to delete it myself. On average I have about 190 spam/junk e-mails sitting in my junk box at any given time.
It’s been ages since I’ve opened that box, but I decided to this morning just to see what was in it.
- Madam Zinab wants to put $10.5 million dollars into my bank account. That’s nice, but Maria Yaroly wants to put $12 million into it. Of course I’m going to go with the larger dollar amount, plus Maria was kind enough to call me “My Darling.” That was a nice touch.
- New York & Company, I guess it’s some kind of clothing store in New York, has sent me an e-mail—spam—for over eight years now wanting me to purchase something from them. Eight years. They should figure out at this point that I’m not going to buy anything.
- Hot Rod Magazine: You might as well stop bugging me. I’m not getting a subscription. I don’t even drive anymore.
- A guy named “Steel” wants to send me a video showing me how to make girls horny. It’s odd that he doesn’t even mention the price of the video. I have to e-mail him back if I’m interested. I’m not.
- Kaplan University wants to talk to me about scholarships. I have a feeling if I followed through on this e-mail, it would end up being about money. They’re not interested in giving me anything.
- There are a lot of “penis growth” promotions going on out there. I guess these types of e-mails are never going to go away. Approaching 60 years old now and with a few health problems, I’ve got other things on my mind besides the size of my penis. I guess I could answer them back and tell them that, but I doubt if any real person would be reading my response, especially since I wouldn’t be purchasing any of their pills.
Had enough of this? Me too.
I remember when spam used to be some kind of horrible tasting meat—guess it still is. Now, we have another kind of spam. Isn’t it nice to have a variety? No, not really. Both kinds leave a bad taste in my mouth.
