Hack Job

Much Ado About Nothing April 25, 2017

Jean Ciampi - Much Ado About NothingMuch Ado About Nothing by Jan Ciampi La la la I’m toodling along minding my own business, and wham-o! My email gets hacked. What did I do to deserve having some obnoxious moron in Cyberville target me? I’m not involved with online gambling. I don’t click the ads to learn how to lose 20 pounds of belly fat in two days. Nonetheless, several versions of unfortunate emails were sent to every person in my address book. If you got a message that seemed a little weirder than what I usually send, let me straighten out a few things.

Be confident in my sincerity when I say I care about you deeply, but there will still be things that I don’t need to put on my radar unless I’ve given birth to you. In all honesty, I do not care if you want to further your education through online courses to be a master electrician or cosmetologist. That’s great if you do, but I’m not going to email you information about it. Don’t open those.

Whereas I know quite a few physicians and the pharmacist I use is super nice, I’m not going to hook you up with cheap medications. I don’t know a single doctor, pharmacist or drug dealer in Mexico, Canada or any part of the UK. Shop around. You can find generics everywhere for about $4. That’s as far as I’m going on giving you advice on that. Don’t look for any more emails on that subject.

I don’t care if you’re balding, wrinkled, or have incontinence. Most of all, I do not care about whether or not you increase your personal satisfaction in anything, even if it’s by 200%. An 83-year old friend of mine received an email from me asking if she had certain genitalia. If she did, she needed to click the included link. She promptly emailed back to let me know that even at her age, she was still able to identify her parts. Since she was deficient in the equipment required, she deleted the email. Excuse me while I’m temporarily mortified, but sometimes it pays to be a girl. Even an old girl.

I can only guess that this invasion of my privacy is known as being “hacked” because I was definitely hacked off by the whole experience! What happened to the days when you simply got your house wrapped?

  • Much Ado About Nothing - Crabbiness

    If you have a verifiable emergency, call 9-1-1. Indicators that you might have an emergency are the presence of more blood than can be contained in an average sized Band-aide; firearms being used inside a building that isn’t a gun range; and fire where fire shouldn’t be. All those things constitute a call to 9-1-1. […]

    My list of New Year’s resolutions. Here’s the first: (1) Stop procrastinating so much. I’ll post the rest tomorrow or maybe the day after.

    They ordered their pizza 5 minutes before the New Year and when it arrived they firmly stated, “Wait, we ordered this pizza a year ago.” 😊 Reliable, smart, compassionate Hoda Kobt has officially replaced Matt Lauer on “Today” and the former (fired) newsman sent her a congratulations text. Whoopee. I don’t know why it would […]

  • Much Ado About Nothing - Blood Donor

    Christmas shopping recently quickly reminded me that this is truly the season to be bled dry. From your MasterCard, checking, savings, 401K, and your children’s college funds should all be liquidated, right? But until you’ve really opened a vein, you haven’t been bled for Christmas. This Christmas give the real gift: The Gift of Life. […]

    Attention People of Earth! It’s like this: remember that 9.4-ton unmanned space station that China launched, oh, way back when? No? Well, it’s going to be crashing into Earth sometime in the next couple of months. While nothing can ruin your day quite like being obliterated by space debris with a “Made in China” tag […]
