Old (ish) (Wo)Man Yells At Cloud

My email was hacked tonight while I was at work. Some sort of "Hey, get a free computer" thing went out to my entire address book. Lovely.

And what did the majority of people write back to me about it? Not "Hey, what the hell, dood?" No. They all said "You would never write something so grammatically incorrect - this has to be spam."

It's official.

I have become my mother.

I didn't say anything, but that's exactly how I knew it wasn't you.

I love it! I cannot stand bad grammar. In fact, I think you have corrected me before on my blog!

I'm so predictable.

Ditto on Suebob's comment.

Funny, I knew it wasn't you because it was so annoyingly cheerful!

Laughing because that's EXACTLY how I knew it was spam.

That and the mis-spellings.

I got that email and thought exactly the same thing.

Grammatically correct unite against grammatically incorrect spam!

(I just find it funny that I wasn't the only one who noticed how godawful the grammar was and knew it couldn't be our J.)

Oh, thank you for the laugh. Sorry it was at your expense.

Gabriella said...

hehe...I meant it totally as a compliment!!

Lara said...

It's true! I hadn't mentioned anything to you about it, but I did find it odd. I was like, "Her English skills are significantly better than this..." :)
