7% of all your emails are important. 13% are irrelevant, but funny. Another 13% are sexually related - "I love you, check out my website" and prescription offers. 14% are some sort of scam and 17% are some sort of chain email (the last person who broke this chain was George W Bush, look what happened to him). The last 36% are total bullshit. Of this type I write tonight.
I got an email from a coworker today, warning me about giving gift cards for Christmas. It told of several companies that were holding off closing their doors and going bankrupt until after the Christmas season so they could sell a bunch of worthless gift cards. The email named over a dozen companies, including Sprint, Dell, Ethan Allen and Rite Aid.
For the love of God, would you people please quit believing everything that is sent to you in your inbox!
I'm not talking to those of you who hit DELETE when you see this propaganda, and fortunately that includes most of you that I choose to associate with. But there are a few acquaintances and coworkers that insist on forwarding every warning, every threat, every support our troops and every "the end of the world is near because a Democrat is going to be president" email that you get.
It's not all true. People are lying to you to either put forth their agenda or just because they think it is funny that so many morons fall for this garbage.
Count me out, take me off your list. Unless you have researched it and found there to be some truth to it, don't clog up my inbox or brain with it.
Thanks. And have a good day.
