You've Got Junk Mail

So, I opened up my email account this morning like I always do, only this time I actually looked at my junk mail before I deleted it all.   Mind you, I didn't OPEN my junk mail, I just checked out the subject lines.     Among them . . .

"You Can Beat Alcoholism" - - I have never had a drink in my life.   Now, if it had said, "You Can Beat Sugar Addiction" or "You Can Beat TV Addiction"  or "You Can Beat Michael Phelps at the 200", I might have been interested.  But, as put, I don't think so.

"Toe Nail Fungus Treatment" - - two junk mails on that one.   I think I've mentioned before that I don't have the most attractive feet.   But last time I looked, I didn't see any fungus growing.   But maybe I should just save that one . . . just in case.  You never know when that creepy fungus is going to attack.

"Grow a big package today" - - and I don't think they were talking about FedEx.   I have never met a man named Judy but I have heard of a boy named Sue.  

"BEST PRICE ON ALL DRUGS" - - that just sounds wrong.  

No wonder it's called junk mail.

  1. I am always surprised they don't put something else in the subject line so that I might open it!

  2. No e-mail from a prince somewhere in Africa that will give you tons of money, if you just send him a tiny bit to start the whole process? I agree, you better keep the toenail thing just in case. One never knows when it might come in handy.

  3. Too funny! I agree with Andrea: You'd think these people would put something in the subject line that would actually make us open these things.

    Is it for religious reasons that you've never had a drink?

    1. I am Mormon, and that's why I don't drink. Although I didn't join that church until I was in my 20s, and never drank before that! So, I guess the answer to your question is yes and no :)

  6. Wait. What? Never a drink EVER? Can you please do a post on this. I'm Catholic. We have wine AT MASS. You must have some great "only sober person at the party" tales to share. C'mon. For me?

  10. I get junk text messages too. Apparently I have been miss sold enough PPI insurance to pay off the UK budget deficit and had so many accidents I am now minus both arms, five legs and a head - hopefully the SEX SEX SEX and penis enlargement spammers will stick to email and save my blushes on the bus though! :-/
