forward - foe or friend

Most times I just don't care much for those forwarded emails.  I believe there are some people who forward just about everything they get.  I wonder if they bother to even read some of them.  Also, it amazes me (often doesn't take much for that) how an email I saw months ago shows up again from someone who thinks they are passing along 'new interesting funny' stuff.

Do you have the same inbox problem?

However, there are some funny ones flying around out there.  I find the funny odd photos the best.  Most of them are faked I believe, but a good fake can still be funny.

Here's a few pictures I've been forwarded over the past few weeks.  Sorry if they have passed through your inbox already.  (hey I didn't forwarded them anyway)

yoga pose -  This one came as a PDF attachment.  It compares yoga poses with pictures of public drunks (I assume).  This one - Plow Pose reduces backache and can help you get to sleep.

Irish politics involving the EU

New boater learns about a boat launch

OCD at the microwave - This one cracked me up. Could anyone really be worried about "leftover time on the microwave"??? 
(oh I just noticed that the words are difficult to read - what you getting old like me?   so it's a note asking co-workers to "clear any unused time off" because it drives the OCD people crazy!)

So OK, I don't mind some of the "forwards".  I guess I can sort them out.

I hate most forwarded e-mails because I think it is one way spammers get your e-mail address. Not sure how it works but I am always curious behind the motivation of forward to 10 people or you'll be damed.

I can only imagine the story the guy with the boat/truck will tell.

Thanks for sorting emails. These were terrific.

@ocean girl - I think you are right about your email address getting more public. Another step people should take in sending email to multiple people is the blind copy or BCC. That way not everyone on the list sees your email which isn't a problem typical in the first round but if one person does a forward without deleting the original addresses (extra step) your address now goes to people you might not know.

@JJ - yeah that boat owner looks really stupid in that picture - better if they NEVER get on the water.

Those were amusing.

Keep sorting them out for me because I always hit delete without looking.

Bill Lisleman said...

#unknown mami - yeah I understand sometimes that's the best way to get through it all.

I love that little Irish boy. Too funny.

And the microwave note? Hey, I would be glad to have any leftover time...

Bill Lisleman said...

@FF - yeah he looks like he could bust a sand castle. No leftover time here, I always let it go until the beep.
