You may remember the recent spam I’d been getting from some persons offering to off anyone annoying me – or, at least, teach them a lesson. Mercifully, this sort of spam has stopped. In its place, I started receiving spam from lawyers.
Kinda makes sense, I guess. You would need a good lawyer, had you accepted the mobsters’ offer.
As the accompanying blurb says,
You only have one time to win your case. Having the right lawyer represent your rights is critical to your success. Choosing an experienced lawyer who has an excellent reputation will make the other side’s defence attorney think twice about how they handle your claim. Search in our ads above to find a layers (sic) near you.
But when things really go south, that’s when you need the next kind of spam, which I received today…
Most funeral homes today offer pre-planning services. Pre-planning relieves your family of significant pressure and uncertainty over arrangements. It may even head off arguments among family members over what you wanted for your services and burial.
I’m now starting to have second thoughts about the competency of those lawyers. And is it me, or does the couple in the photo look strangely mirthful, given the circumstances? I wonder what other services those mobsters offered them…
“Cover Yourself”—they’ve inadvertently given you top notch advice. If you really want a bargain, you don’t need their insurance. You could go out in your backyard and do exactly that, cover yourself. That’ll save your family the quibbles and expense just as well, and it won’t cost you more than the price of a sturdy shovel.
Ha ha – yes, I hear good things about backyard mud shelters 😀
The couple looks like some of the people you see on TV shows. You wonder what kind of drugs they’re on and where you could get some that good! But it sounds like you may need a better spam filter. But then you couldn’t entertain us with this.
Meh, spam filters are for wimps 😀
You have me laughing. I am about to turn 65 and I get so much burial insurance email, spam and mail that I would be independently wealthy if they paid me a nickle for each one. And I won’t talk about the Medicare Mail etc. LOL 🙂
Lol – I get that, too. And I’m not even American – or live in the US 😀
One of my email accounts was plagued so badly by spam I had to close it down. I was getting literally hundreds a day!
I’ve done the same, I’m afraid. Those guys are relentless!
Interesting business model. Next the religious might step in an offer you heaven for a price too.
You may be on to something 😀
I wonder how you got on those lists? Hmmm. At least they’re good for a laugh. The “Cover Yourself” cracked me up. Happy thoughts 🙂
I wonder the same thing all the time!!!
You get to the age where burial plans and pre-paid funerals of all sorts start to appear in your inbox. Once you get as old as me, the Viagra ads get more frequent, and requests to ‘Hook Up With A Granny Near You’ worryingly appear too.
(That last one gets more appealing, believe me…)
Best wishes, Pete.
Ha ha, fair enough 😀
LOL It’s not you. 🙂
Yes, I was afraid of that 😀
Why can’t I get the normal, grow your… erm… finger, kind of spam??
Are you in the market for such things? LOL
Lol – and that’s how you know that you’re oversharing over the Internet 😀
Can they combine the pre-planning burials with the hitman for a discount?
Normally, I’d check (I’m a sucker for discounts), but in this case I think I’ll pass 😀
True. Might raise some questions and saying ‘I’m an author and doing research’ can only work so many times.
Be afraid. Be very afraid, Nicholas. ☺
Oh, I am!!!
😀 😀 😀
I’m at a loss for words. Better watch your back.
Time to write that will…
😀 😀 😀
Good information to have!
Lol – which part? The hitman services?
Yes the couple are looking happy they are thinking about what they’ll get when the other one dies :o!
I think the lawyers who advertise at all like this are probably the ones you should steer clear of. I had no idea there was spam out there offering hitman services. It’s like something out of a video game!
Lol – that does explain all the mirth in the photo 😀
Yes, I was rather shocked myself. Thankfully, that only lasted for a week or so.
It would seem the lawyers who were ambulance chasers may have become a bit more classy. Also, they now want to get to you “before” the accident. You’re right. That couple does look a bit too happy under those circumstances. They’re models though and are getting paid to look happy. If someone paid me, I’d look happy too. 😀 — Suzanne
Lol – send me some cash and let the happiness spread 😀
I wouldn’t take on any long term projects Nicholas……
Lol – if I disappear, you’ll know what happened… Hugs!
You too! I’m sorry I haven’t visited much lately. I read your posts on my tablet, and commenting there is a nightmare 🙂
Don’t worry I will carry on ?
Lol – see if I ever apologize again 😀
You have to read my Roxy post tomorrow as it is the penultimate episode! Next week she disappears as I turn her into a book. She’s here now and says ‘Hi Nicholas!’
ROXYYYY!!! COME VISIT ME OVER HERE!!! ROOOXYYY (in my best Brando impersonation)
I do read: I get your posts by email, so I haven’t missed a thing 🙂
It is an epic episode!
Did you know Roxy made it onto Wattpad as a Featured Story? I now have 27k followers on there…LOL! Am absolutely clueless what I do with my following. Sigh!
this is such great and informative post..
Lol – not so sure about informative, but thanks 🙂
