I hate spamming myself!

Spams #1 and #2

Don’t you just hate it when you come in to work on a Monday morning, fire up your e-mail client and discover that over the weekend you’ve been spamming yourself!

Yesterday I received an e-mail with the subject: “January 73% OFF”. This morning I received one that offered: “January 78% OFF”.

I reckon I’ll hold out until Friday when I expect to get a whole 100% off January.

Update – Spam #3

I can’t say I’m not disappointed in myself. My latest spam message is offering only “January 71% OFF”.

I think I might have blown it now. I fear that I’ve waited too long.

I may now not be the proud owner of a brand new shiny January of my own. Only time (and spam) will tell.

Update – Spams #4 and #5

Well, thankfully I appear to be the only person offering reduced rates on January so the competition isn’t high.  Yesterday I apparently offered myself “January 73% OFF”.

This morning it was up to “January 76% OFF”. Still nowhere near the bargain of 78% off from a couple of days ago.

Come on me. Surely I could do a better deal than that for myself. Mates’ rates and all that.

One thought on “I hate spamming myself!”

  1. Don’t worry, I have become the Admin of the Viagra site! I’ve had only 1 or 2 in my inbox in the past few months (bless Gmail!) but in my spam folder there’s normally one every few days! and I can’t mark them as spam since they are reportly coming from my Gmail account!
