I’m very gleeful. I’m soooper-thrilled. Why? I figured out how to do something techno- all by myself!!! Yippppeee….look how easy it is to make me happy!
Now here’s the story:
I, like most people on the internet these days, have been plagued by requests from friends, acquaintances, business contacts and sundry strangers whose addresses are mysteriously lodged in my address book….to join a stooopid network called GAZZAG
The first torrent I just deleted, with thank you-but-no thank you notes to those concerned, explaining that I was already part of a few networks and didn’t need to be any more ‘connected. Yeah…I can be good-mannered too.
After awhile I just gave up being polite and deleted the mails.
And then one day, I gave in.
Signing up was easy and I figured it would just stop them from sending those damn invitations into my mailbox. Indeed they did. Connected I was. And how!!
The next day, my mailbox was crammed with notes from friends, acquaintances, business contacts and sundry strangers …(oh where have you heard this before?) Some were polite, telling me how they didn’t need to be connected any more (ah…that’s familiar too). Some were curt, some friendly (yeah sure, babe….I’m on!). And yes…there was….lets just call him Mr.Obnoxious.
Now a little about Mr.Obnoxious….a few people around here know him and may recognize him from the description. He is quite simply put…obnoxious! Has been ever since I’ve known him which is a long, long time. I won’t go into why and how he’s obnoxious….let’s just say this blog is reasonably PG-rated and I may lose that rating if I tell you the details of our conversations.
Mr.Obnoxious replied with
S*** my d*** and I’ll join your stupid network.
I wrote back saying,
Oops, sorry about that. I didn’t realise these idiots were spamming everyone on my address book. As for your proposition, in your dreams!!!!
Today, I received another mail from him, appended to yet another one of those damn green mails.
My offer still stands.
S*** my d*** and I’ll tell you
This time I didn’t bother retorting. I wailed,
Oh damn….how do I get these bloody jokers out of my inbox??????
And he said,
S*** my d*** and I’ll tell you!
(Persistant, isn’t he? Yeah….)
In sheer frustration, I signed into the damn GAZZAG site and managed to figure out how to terminate the account. So now, hear one, hear all, I am not responsible for any more junk that lands in your inbox, no matter what they claim!
Also, plizzz plizzz plizzzz don’t sign up for this network, certainly not if I’m in your address book. ESPECIALLY not if I’m in your address book. I’ll take a cue from Mr.Obnoxious and send vile messages back till you’re forced to shut it down.
Also, if you’re wondering who Mr.Obnoxious is, to me, that I put up with such rubbish from him…..let’s just say it’s almost a pleasure to spew nastiness that is provoked by deliberate weirdness and not sheer stupidity. Almost. Go figure.
*Jumping up and down with glee*
This was more fun than writing a nasty retort to Mr…you-know-who-you-are 😉
