Attacked

bug

I’ve missed you!  It seems my computer caught a nasty bug or virus.  The evil little booger crept in in the middle of the night with no warning and no immediate cure.  Ominous warnings flashed every where. ….offering to fix it with my credit card number…..and warning all my information was at risk….and misspelled.  :).  That was my first clue.

The good news is that I did survive.  I even caught up on a little reading and played a few games…..but I must admit it.  I felt a little resentment….well, maybe more than a little.  So this is for THEM:

To Whom It May Concern:

1.  I so very much appreciate your kind offer of oodles of money (I can’t tell how much it is).  I know it must be a terrible problem—all that money and no place to put it.  However, at this time I must decline.  It seems imprudent to send my information or money to places I can’t find on the map.

2.  I do not think I will be needing any male enhancement products now or in the near future.

3.  If you are my dear friend stranded in some remote country with no wallet, ID, or money; borrow a cell phone.  If I know you well enough to send you money, you know the number.

4.  I prefer to buy my drugs the old-fashioned way—with a prescription and at my local pharmacy. 

5.  I  prefer to borrow money from banks.

6.  I am going to risk not knowing your information about the actual time and date for the end of the world.

7.  I will not forward your email that promises health, wealth, and happiness if I send it to ten of my closest friends.  If something dances across your screen, call an exterminator or a doctor.

Now, I feel just a little better and so does my computer.  Glad to be back.  I missed my friends!

  2. Love the post. I agree with the list. Right now, you have to be a blood relative to get money out of me, so don't bother emailing, calling or sending a Facebook message.

  6. Oh my! Sorry! Glad you were able to get it fixed.
    Sure hope I don't get one - I would not know what to do. Don't have any spare change to give away these days. Sounds like you get some of the same email that I do.

  8. I'm so sorry to hear that. You were missed. What a shame that people enjoy making other people so miserable! I just hope if I get attacked that it happens on my desktop since it's going to die before long anyway.

  9. Sounds like you had the same thing I had. It seems to be rampant lately. You may remember that I finally had to call in the Geek Squad to fix my computer. A couple of weeks ago, I got something similar in my laptop. I was crushed. I finally carried it to the Geek Squad, but when they scanned it, they found nothing. The only thing they could figure out is that my anti-virus software eventually cleaned it up. Best thing to do is that if you get one of those dire warnings don't click on anything. Just shut your computer down and re-boot.

  18. Diese Ringe werden auch als Quadrat Smaragdschliff thomas sabo charm oder Kissen schneiden bekannt. Und das stilvolle Merkmal dieser Schnitt ist die quadratische Form mit thomas sabo charm club anhänger Ecken schneiden wie ein Achteck.

Daher Asscher Diamanten kann teuer im Vergleich zu sabo charms anderen Diamanten von der gleichen Karat.
