I was going through my emails this morning and accidentally sent one to my spam folder, so I clicked over to fish it out. When I was in there retrieving it, I discovered that amongst the usual missives offering to relieve me of my money and to set me up with all of my town’s hot singles and random other assorted spamwiches, was one that stood out.
[Also included within: An email that started off "Charles, here's the latest in men's big and tall clothing..." I don't know who Charles is, but I hope he didn't get an email that started off "Jen, here's the latest in perimenopause news..." Poor Charles' eyes might never be the same.]
The subject line was: Discover the latest in forklifts. Now, you’re probably thinking that this is some sort of euphemism. I was dubious too, but I couldn’t think of a single way that someone could take forklifts and make them nasty, so I decided to take a look.
See? Totally innocuous, unless there’s some warehouse machinery porn I’m not aware of. (I’ll NOT be Googling that one to find out. You’re on your own on that one.)
As it happens, I don’t have any forklift needs. Believe me, I’d like to, just so that I could get my questions answered and start comparing prices.
And how much fun would it be to drive one?
Do me a favor, would you, please? Click over to your spam folder and tell me what’s in there today.
