ARE YOU THERE YET?
Seems when a person achieves a level of maturity known by people all over the world who want to sell stuff, they get your name and cell phone or email. Are you there yet? I am.
Some are so outrageous, I have to save them to show you. Here are a few of my favorites from those who believe us to be doddering old fools.
(SPAM) USPS #Failure to deliver: RIGHT, OUR U.S. POSTAL SERVICE IS GOING TO SEND ME A NOTICE FROM SLOVAKIA!
From: “Your USPS” firstname.lastname@example.org Sent from: (TIMEOUT) Slovakia (SK)

(SPAM) For The Smoker You Love! Guess what – there isn’t a smoker I’d ever love! not even from the Netherlands!
So, okay, I bought a pipe to be used, sans tobacco, for use in an Irish play last year, and now some bozo in the Netherlands thinks i want an electronic cigarette?
(Though i did see a commercial for one with the tag line, “We’re all adults here.” Right Honey, but you’re an adult with an oral fixation, Buster!

Had to laugh at these two. Seriously, I am NOT into cigars for any reason. Oh, but it’s from Luxembourg, so it’s legit, right?

Do not despair: If you aren’t old enough to be harassed by Spam and telemarketers, don’t fret – you’ll get there! What do you do about spam? Not the kind in the can! That’s Spam and some of us love it!
