go eat a dick, thanks. [Feb. 11th, 2003|01:18 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Just got a call from some lady:

"Are you the guy that runs LiveJournal.com?"
"I am."
"You're famous."
"I guess."
"So, I work with a guy who runs Email Examiner and he was very impressed by your article last month."
"Okay."
"So if it's okay with you, I'm going to have him give you a call and talk."
"Uh, about what?"
"He does spamming." [yes, she really said that... not "email mass marketing". spamming.]
"No thanks, not interested."

*yawn*

Hey would you be pissed if a post of yours that gets insaaaaane traffic featured a very nice and obvious typo ? I'm pretty sure that would torture you. *snicker*

"Excuse me, there's someone at the door. Back in a few moments."

Set phone down.

Come back when phone company sends loud "off hook" tone.

which brings up the interesting question...

are people born to eat dicks or are they made that way?

No, wait a minute. Think of how much fun you could have giving the run-around to a real live admitted spammer on the phone! You could send some frustration payback!

It's a pity you didn't get that call while sitting on the can.

"Sorry can you excuse me for a sec.."
*loud grunting and toilet noises*
"Okay, now where were we?"
