Old (ish) (Wo)Man Yells At Cloud

My email was hacked tonight while I was at work. Some sort of “Hey, get a free computer” thing went out to my entire address book. Lovely.

And what did the majority of people write back to me about it? Not “Hey, what the hell, dood?” No. They all said “You would never write something so grammatically incorrect – this has to be spam.”

It’s official.

I have become my mother.

    I didn't say anything, but that's exactly how I knew it wasn't you.

    Funny, I knew it wasn't you because it was so annoyingly cheerful!

    It's true! I hadn't mentioned anything to you about it, but I did find it odd. I was like, "Her English skills are significantly better than this…" 🙂
