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 - Period Party

    by on July 19, 2018 - 0 Comments

    I got an invitation to a Period Party. As a writer – well, in the loosest interpretation of that word – I thought I’d been invited to a fun little soiree involving punctuation and editing marks. My brain was so busy trying to decide which red gel pen I’d take as a hostess gift that […]

    This one was hard to write. A 29-year-old Corpus Christi woman was arrested after having sold her son, age 7, and was also in the process of trying to sell her daughters, age 2 and 3. I admit that there have been many times that I thought about getting rid of my children, but I […]

  • Much Ado About Nothing - Water-Skiing Squirrel

    There may be no greater example of the brutality of Time marching on than this. Oh children, how it grieves me that, alas, I must be the bearer of this heartbreaking news, but, yes, after nearly 40 long, glorious years, the water-skiing squirrel show is ending. Please wail and gnash your teeth now. I’ll wait. […]

  • Much Ado About Nothing - Food Offended

    Burger King offends me. Standing in allegiance with vegans and vegetarians everywhere, I must demand that they change their name. Burger, naturally, is an affront to the sensibilities of all animal lovers everywhere. Not to mention, the idea of having a crowned ruler dictating over a bun-oriented sandwich of any type seems highly archaic. To […]

    According to the Planet Fitness website, this chain promises a “Judgement Free Zone,” where members feel comfortable regardless of their fitness level.” In New Hampshire, one member walked in, stripped off all his clothes, walked across the gym a couple of times, found a mat and struck a yoga pose. He was arrested for his […]
