‘MOM’ Turn it upside down-‘WOW’!

/Think that title comes in some Dan Brown’s novel.Anyways thanks to him/

My favourite e-mail.

e-mails,sometimes are interesting,not evertime.I’m fed up with spams.I seriously don’t understand my eligibility as a nurse in Australia and a lottery ticket winner of Florida.I sometimes wonder whether people really sit down and type the mail addresses to send me some trash which I’m gonna crush and throw it to outer space within a click’s time.Job offers are becoming a joke.I don’t even have a proper degree in my hands,But I am awaiting some mail to call me as the dean of Brooklyn hospitals in the near future.This mail is probably the best-‘Buy our products:Sanitary Napkins for half price from Kentucky enterprises’,I was embarassed and irritated to the core.So many advertisements.As Jules winfield(Samuel Jackson-Pulp Fiction)says “I dare you,I double dare you motherf****r!Send me a mail,send me one more mail and I will shoot you!”And forwards are the biggest menace.They swarm like maggots and suck huge space that my mail loads forever.I seldom read anything rather unsubscribing autonomously subscribed ‘groupshit’.There are very few forwards I read,from my trusted list of address-book people and this one is my top-favourite.I haven’t come across any poetry or a short story having such an impact on me.Like a dinosaur’s whack,the pain in my mind evokes another drop of tear everytime I go through this.

-Mail ends-

After all the tastiest fish also has thorns.The original mailsender had attached a footer to it which made me scold against his maternal and paternal existence.”IF YOU LOVE YOUR MOM,THEN SEND IT TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS.”
