Seriously it wasn't me---SPAM emails

Post by positrac » Tue Aug 15, 2017 4:27 am

Recently I’ve been getting these odd messages in my email account about me lying and trying to scam this woman??? I take it as spam because in this world no one truly knows who is who and all we have is our word. Most of those messages automatically hit my junk box and were automatically deleted.
So now a person on this site is supposedly really upset with me because I am trying to work this deal….. Thanks for the offer; although my schedule is pretty booked up.
Sometimes people get on these sites and bait a topic on something that will inspire a firm reply and get embarrassed and then want retribution because they were the fool for playing roulette.

So to those to whom I thought I knew I just want to express that I am about sobriety and I am not about anything extra because I am not your huckleberry! So you are welcome to think what you need to think and say what you need to say because you’ve got the wrong guy.

Sorry Positrac...I couldn't resist!! Loved the reference from Tombstone....one of my fav's!!
Hope the problem has been straightened out for you. Clearly I am way too slow at work today!

No worries I have a sense of humor and this topic Segway's into another topic that happened recently.

Being from Texas we have to have a good humor to keep the rest of the country on their toes.

Be well.

I get mail from friends who have been hacked and it seems to always be Viagra... Really?

I'd rather have spam - and a soundtrack from Monty Python to go with it!
