*snerk*

Reason #937 why forwarding chain emails to ABSOLUTELY EVERY SINGLE EMAIL ADDRESS YOU POSSESS is a bad idea, no matter how much you agree with what they say: If one of those addresses is for the collection agency with which you've been negotiating a settlement? The recipient will go O_o for about five seconds, and then mock you mercilessly to her coworkers.

Even better? An idiot who accidentally forwards a chain email to someone she's threatened to sue through a similar sort of mishap. Especially when she's been sent a lawyer's letter that included a clause of "don't ever email my client again, or else she will sue YOU for harrassment."

Yes, this actually happened.

*facepalm* Okay, that wins. We deal with some astonishingly dense people around here, but wow.

What an absolute doof.

*snicker*

My aunt sent me the 'omg water will EXPLODE IN YOUR FACE if you microwave it' e-mail the other day. But at least she was nice about my reply with the Snopes link for additional info. I think we're going to get together in the next week or two. :)

Wow, I haven't seen that one in years!

I actually don't get that kind anymore for the most part. Occasionally the friendship ones, which would be cute and fun if they weren't all the same and if I didn't have more specifically significant stuff to communicate with the same people. I sort of feel bad ignoring them completely, because I know some people get genuine warm fuzzies from them, but I just don't want to deal. I suck. ;-)

*snerk* I've passed the point where I get any WAFFs from anything like that, though. I'm just irritated by them. Possibly I'm extra-crochety about it? Doesn't matter; I just delete them and move on any more.

Because, yes, more significant communications? Are preferable.

Can you tell I have stuff to do that I really don't want to do? *delays more*
