3 little letters...how could they strike such misery into my heart?
Fwd: I must see it in my email 4000 times a day. I am done, I can take no more. I am speaking out....
If you don't have something to say...and more importantly...if you don't have something orginal to say. DON'T SEND IT!
If it's funny...by all means...I like a good laugh as much as the next gal...
Take out the...
etc etc etc
So I don't need to scroll through a message for 45 minutes just to find which part you are actually intent on me to reading.
Oh and don't bother sending websites...I am not going to look at them. That takes way too much time to sort out of all the other junk in there. If the site is important enough to send it should be sent in it's own email.
I am a Fwd: hater.
Why don't I just delete them you ask?
I know you are asking.
Because I have to know. I have to maintain this civil liberty to get aggravated with my in laws...I mean the people who send them to me. Yeah...just 'people'....people in no way attached to me by marriage.
One of those people...you know the one who didn't give birth to Spouse. She is INFAMOUS for repeat offending Fwd:'s. I say repeat because I take great pleasure in looking up whatever bullshit she has sent me on Snopes and then hitting "Reply all" and sending out the rebuke to everyone else she has deemed worthy enough to suffer her regurgitated propaganda.
And then what happens?
Cause I know you are asking again.
That's right...the following week I get it AGAIN!
So I complain to her, it's annoying. DON'T DO IT ANYMORE! I am very clear on this. Her response..."ohhhh dahhhling...just delete them!"
How about just don't send them?
Isn't that easier then clogging up my inbox?? Which for the record, is CLOGGED because there are very few people in this world who can resist the Fwd:.
I am proud to say I am not one of them, I resist. I am not even a recovering Fwd:er. I never even tried it.
I don't do Fwd:s....Fwd:s are bad.
Frankly...rude so knock it off.
I need to start a national do not Fwd: list.
Starting with everyone whose last name is the same as mine....
I knew I should have kept my maiden name...besides just being a better name.
It is not in my genetic code to Fwd:.
Final note...on the whole maiden name thing. Shouldn't it be the better last name that is the one used when a couple marries? Not automatically the man? This isn't a feminist attitude I promise.
It's about who had the better name.
Cause mine rocked.
...But like the lack of Fwd: DNA I lack the "my children's last name's are different then mine DNA."
Maybe it's just me....
Now I insist...Fwd: this blog to absolutely no one. Unless of course you think it was really funny...but do it on your own terms. Not because you are being told to send it to 10 people, or that it will add you to a magic list somewhere of people who will get 10k for their Fwd:ing efforts.
