I’m not usually one for forwarding or sharing the mass amounts of spammy email that I get.  You know the ones that have 12,456,098 email address on it and it takes 10 minutes just to weed through them and actually get to the message (tip here:  It’s called BCC).  Most of it I don’t even read (sorry if you love me and send me stuff 🙂 ).  But, today I got this one from my good friend Amy and well, I liked it so much that I have decided to share it with ya.  It is SO true showing how ridiculous people have become.  I hope it makes you smile!
