Every morning and throughout the day, I check my email. I bet everyone reading this does too. I'm an entertainment writer, so I also have huge amounts of emails coming in day and night with press releases. But, it's the other little gems full of pop culture crap that I want to tell you about.
The Wrap: Lots of email, maybe two, three times an hour sometimes much more. The Wrap is an entertainment site that reports on the industry no matter how small. I need this site to keep up with the community. I have to keep this one coming in.
Harp Mortgage: This mortgage company, that mortgage company, everywhere a .... You get the idea. Also, the refi emails come in almost right after. So, get a mortgage and then refi. Oh, better keep that 'Are you in foreclosure' email.
Just in case you're all good on a mortgage, you must have a car, so you need car insurance. Rates as low as $9 per week, (or as high as $120 a week), The $120 is my own addition to the email, but I bet it's closure than their estimate.
Stay Hard: A stronger, thicker, improved ... need I go on. I get several of these a day, from different companies. Funny, I never get one to actually help females, but we won't go there.
Democrats 2014: That's what I get for registering to vote. These people are sneaky, they will put such things as 'Hello Terra, we did it.' Cool, what'd we do? We didn't do a damn thing. I hate politics.
Credit Card Deals: We all need new credit cards. Don't we? There are about a bazillion companies that think we do. These are evil, evil people. Run fast, delete, delete, delete.
Above are just a few of the emails that arrive daily, in multiples.
I've also noticed something a bit disturbing lately. I've been getting emails with very similar names to people I do converse with a lot. I have a PR person named Allison, all of a sudden I'm getting emails with the first name of Allison or Ally. The same thing is happening with Emma and Beth.
Lastly and the worst of all, Cheat on your wife, your husband, your dog. OMG, Sodom and Gomorrah in my mailbox! Add in the emails offering me a Russian bride and I may never open my mail again. Oh, and this is in my 'in box,' I'm afraid of my 'junk mail' box.
