From the Bizarro Depths of the Spam File


What is there to do when the damn dog wakes you up at 3:30 a.m. for no particular reason other than she wants a cuddle?

Well, you scold a little, do laundry a little, go on Facebook a little and then clean up your blog a little.

As I was scanning my spam file, getting ready to empty it, I ran across this message from my new kowtowing friend, a Miss Silvana Strough, and felt it was too good not to share.

She says . . .

I simply wanted to appreciate you yet again. I’m not certain what I would have worked on in the absence of these tips provided by you directly on my problem. It became an absolute fearsome matter in my circumstances, nevertheless being able to see your professional fashion you solved the issue made me to cry with delight. Now I am grateful for the work and in addition have high hopes you really know what a powerful job that you are providing instructing most people by way of your web site. Most probably you’ve never got to know any of us.

The kicker? This was a comment intended for my post about Snickerdoodles.

Seriously, who writes this blather?

Do people really fall for it?

Have you read or seen Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice? Silvana gives the slimy Mr. Collins “of Rosing’s Park” a run for his money when it comes to obsequiousness.

I sweep away her prattle with a dismissive wave, and the same level of disdain as the great Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

And then imperiously pick dryer lint off of my yoga pants.

    I would suggest to her that in order to insightfully drill down and engage the forthcoming salient perspectives granularly and to level-set the overarching perspectives and approaches, we must leverage the holistic synergies regarding the collective entities intuitively, which will add strategizing perspectives and efficiencies to all.

      Ooh! That’s a quality example of business speak if I’ve ever read it! I do, however, think it’s incomplete without the phrase “on my radar” and the words “routinize” and “monitize”. Frankly, anything with an “ize” on the end will do.

    At least she was eloquent!!!!!!!!
