I may have to go ballistic on someone........

I'm sure I get much the same e-mails as most of you, and I sometimes do the obligatory forward of particularly good and/or interesting ones. But I have one person, and I won't call him a friend, but he is a client - so I have to act semi-decent in his presence, who insists on sending me GARBAGE. I definitely know how to throw tantrums once he has left my home though.

I am not one who likes to "bite my tongue" or "hold it in", but when it is a business aspect - I have to take on a professional persona. Anyway, this moron, is a right-wing (to the extreme) nit nut, and he sends me some extremely awful e-mails towards Obama. Most are racially wrong and totally distasteful. I have mastered the art of the "delete" button, and honestly, I've told him that I do not appreciate this type of e-mail. He just doesn't get it!

If I receive a good and extremely funny joke, or Maxine material - I forward them on...but I have made a practice of not forwarding anything political - as my friends have varying views, which is all well and good. To spout my political leanings...I have this blog and it serves me quite well.

Until I find a workable solution for this dick-head, I will continue to just "delete." I get frustrated that when I tell him of my preferences, he just turns a blind eye...maybe I could manage to have him hit "upside the head!" Nahhh!

I feel better getting that off of my chest. So enjoy the rest of the weekend and I'll return, later..............

If it's any comfort, you're not alone in your suffering. I think we've all got acquaintances (clients, co-workers, friends, relatives, in-laws, whatever)who apparently need to be fitted for tinfoil hats based on the e-mails they forward.

Same here. I was talking to the guy who sends them and he was like, "so I was listening to Hannity the other day...."

I understand that not everyone is as edjumacated as I am politically, so I tend to hold my tongue when wing-nuts start talking all crazy and stuff. There's no convincing the willfully ignorant.

I say Ditto to the first two comments, does that make me a Dittohead?? I have finally managed to get most of those who know my e-mail address to stop sending right-wingnut bullshit.(Most, not all). One insisted on forwarding sappy religous stuff and far right-wingnut propaganda until I quit communicating with him entirely. He was almost normal until he went back in the Navy and finished his 20.

A friend of mine keeps getting similar e-mails from a woman in our neighborhood and even though she told her to take her off her list, she keeps sending them! What's wrong with these people?

Love the "Dildo" picture. I have actually been in the town of Dildo, Newfoundland and have a picture me next to the town's sign!
