Don't be paranoid. I just wasn't paying attention to your phone bills.

When you get e-mail warnings that you question and you check it on Snopes and find it's a myth, do you e-mail that back to the sender of the original e-mail?

If it's someone I know and they won't get all pissy, then yes I do. I especially do if it's false safety information such as call 711 instead of 911. There was one something like that a couple years ago that I made sure to correct people.

I have one person that keeps sending me this stuff. You know, don't flash your lights, don't smell perfume in a parking lot, and on and on. And I keep sending her the rebuttal from Snopes and the website, but it just doesn't seem to sink in. The same one that keeps sending me all this touchy-feely stuff and forward to ten people and back to her. You'd think, since she never gets it back, she'd figure it out.

Yea, my ex-s-i-l is like that. She's so happy to be using email I guess. I just delete and ignore unless it falls in that safety realm. I don't want to hurt her feelings. I never do those send to 10 people. If it's really funny, I'll delete all that part of the email and just send the funny bit to a few people.

I also hate when they send the 20 forwarded headers along with it...she does that also. Grrrr.

Someone in the parking lot would try to sell you perfume and ask you to smell it. It would have something in it that would knock you out.

Probably the easiest way is to copy the relevant text and paste into a new email.

You know you can filter your e-mail right? set it to delete everything from a sender, or just put it in a different folder.

Still single, can't imagine why.

Sure, but not as big as the check I'll be getting from that nice Nigerian fellow-I just send him a few hundred and it will unlock the millions held in trust during all the Troubles over there. King Abdumamajamma is sure to reward me handsomely!

I hate it when they it is "to" 'everyone on their mailing list'
My address gets out there in everyones address book and these are the kind of people that get the viruses that spammers get our addresses from. (maybe not true, but it sounds good to me since my inbox spam has increased greatly since my d-i-l's mother has been sending me stuff this way)...

Anyone ever have a "Butterscotch Pear?" We bought 6 in a box (wrapped in their own netting) at BJ's for $7.99...a decadent purchase - I hope it will be worth it.

I can't converse and type either. I can't multi-task. Either something or somebody
gets my full attention or it doesn't. No in between.

I try to be like that, but I usually have 3 or 4 people at work trying to ask me questions or do something all at the same time...It's gotten to be a habit to split conversations several ways...I don't like it, but I have to sometimes...
