I’m sure we’ve all had the joy of finding SPAM email in our inbox. I’ve had more spam emails offering to enlarge my penis than I can count. And really, I am a woman, so yes, I suppose if I wanted a penis, I would want help enlarging it since I’m starting at zero after all.
But spam email isn’t limited to just penis enlargement ventures, there are all kinds of spam messages. And, yes, there are days that I am frustrated with the volume of spam emails I need to delete in order to get to the few gems that are buried in the pile – the ones from ACTUAL people. But there are other days when spam email gives me quite a bit of humor and the opportunity to stretch my brain a bit.
For example, my Monday would have started out completely differently if I hadn’t received this morsel of reading enjoyment:
I am kind, loving, opened-mind,caring and respectful to others. My name is Bella.I am a female, I was impressed when i saw your and will like to establish a long lasting relationship with you. In addition,i will like you to reply me through my private e mail box
Seriously, do you ever wonder why someone sends these spam emails?
- What does the person sending this email out get out of this? There was no link to click, no product to buy, no malware to download… just a seemingly random note.
- Does this person just want to spread some cheer? Make random strangers feel like they have a secret admirer?
- Does this person have a fetish with the delete button?
- She’s respectful after all, just look at the first sentence, so it couldn’t be that she just enjoys causing a *squirrel* moment. Distracting – oh say, me – from productive work to take time to write this post.
- What’s the point?
I don’t know that I’ll ever know, but thank you for the laugh, Bella and of course the exercise for my brain trying to imagine your motives. I’m sure your email staved off my Alzheimer’s by a few days. What’s the funniest spam you’ve received recently?
