Marital ‘assistance’ has become funny at last

At home, if I am on my main PC, I use Outlook to get to my e-mail. Away from the house, my iPhone has almost become an electronic home away from home. But, if I am strewn about the house somewhere, tapping away on the laptop, I use the ISP’s web interface for e-mail. The web interface shows me different folders, including one with all of the e-mails that it has decided is spam. Every so often, I check for false positives, then clean it out.

Ordinarily, I don’t even “see” the offers to enhance my manhood, to get some kind of standing ovation with pharmaceutical assistance, and so on. I just register the entire set of them as total rubbish and look for the “Empty Folder” action.

Tonight, I saw them and, since my circumstances are very different now, I thought them almost funny.

A small part of me, the part that looks for a little humor in all situations, felt like replying to a few of them in a very earnest tone to let them know that they were being particularly callous now that I am apparently headed for divorce court and could they perhaps stop sending them for a while…perhaps a year or so? If there were any real people rather than computers behind these scam e-mails, it would almost be worth the diversion from life just to spar with them for a little while.
