Some of you may know that I was in the Philippines yesterday, after deciding to take an impromptu trip, where I lost my wallet and cell phone and asked everyone on my entire email list, including people I don’t even know or remember to send me money – $1850.00 to be exact.
So did anyone step up to help me? I hope not!! If you haven’t figured it out, my email account was hacked and I immediately started getting phone calls and texts letting me know. It really made for a fun day at work, trying to field calls and texts and posting on Facebook to let everyone know, because I couldn’t send out a mass email to everyone because those douchebag hackers wipe out your whole contact list and your “sent” email folder.
Here’s the good news. It got rid of a lot of people I’ve been meaning to clear out of my contact list and I just never got around to it, and my phone has all my contacts anyway, which made me realize that I really need to clean that up too. As for Facebook and all my “friends,” at least I can hide their posts about their what they’re eating today, auditioning for, or how much they love their “babies.”
Someone on my email list who I don’t even know, responded to my hacker email by telling me to “go fuck myself.” Isn’t that nice? Glad to know I can count on him to help me if I ever get in trouble. But what I like about my real friends is that so many of them knew it was a fake email because they knew if I was in the Philippines and was dumb enough to lose my phone and wallet and had to beg my friends for help, the email would have read a bit differently, meaning it would have been riddled with “F” words and would probably have ended saying “How drunk was I that I ended up in the Philippines?” At least my friends know me 😀
Hackers are little nerd bitches that need to get a job, a life, and a blow-up doll.
I hope your day is hack-free.
