Junk Mail

Stumble Upon Toolbar

Do you ever read the titles of the items in your junk mail folder before you delete them? I always check to see if anything I need automatically got kicked in there when it shouldn't have.

Like yesterday, I got one of those musical birthday cards from my high school BFF. (Thanks, Tonia!) It went in my junk mail folder because the company which produced it was not on my list of recognized senders.

Mostly though, the items that land in that folder really are junk. Here are a few that I get repeatedly:


Okay, I don't need this, but I get it almost weekly. In fact, I'll make it simple for everyone else out there. Here's how you become a teacher:

Touch your baby's nose and say, very slowly, "Nose." Now, touch your own nose and repeat. Do this three or four times with a big smile on your face.

There. Now you have become a teacher. Congratulations. You can send me 20 bucks later.


Why, thank you ever so much! That would be such a welcome change, because right now I am VACATIONING at home!!


Ummmmm, no, but thanks for asking.

How about you? What are some of the wacky things you get in your junk mail? (Remember, this is a family friendly blog.)

This is such a funny post that I've read it four times already. Most junk mail I get in my email is for subscriptions to parenting magazines or offers to earn a diploma. There are of course random pharmaceutical offers and then offers to help out a rich royal from some unknown country by giving him my bank account information so he can deposit 500,000 Euros into US banks. So tempting.

Oh Nikki, I forgot about those Nigerian "Christians" who need my help. I want to reply with something like, "You're kidding, right?"

There have been recent news items in Australia about people who actually DO get sucked in by those Nigerian scams!!

If junk mail is to be believed I have won the UK lottery 20 times over!

I get all sort of crazy things and my e-mail box seems to fill up with them! I've been meaning to call and let you know I'd be happy to watch the kids at the house anytime you have to go to the doctor. Arrie would be thrilled to have some kids to watch, she's missing her sisters:)

How they come up with these names is what really baffles me... Dogtrots D. Secreting was trying to sell me pills yesterday.

Because this is a family blog, I cannot tell you what my junk mail says. It's horrible. I have to make sure that the kids aren't in the room when I check my spam folder. It's awful and I would love to find a way to stop getting it! 90% of my junk mail is x-rated ads.
