NSFW. Again

I don't know if I'm the only one who gets rather wary and apprehensive about opening emails [forwards. They're always forwards] from certain people.

It's lunch hour and I decide to check my mail. I know I have none [but perhaps some about viagra, enlarging some thing or other, or a hot piece of stock] but check anyway. I see her name in the inbox and immediately start looking around me. Instinctively. Odds are that forwards is Not Safe For Work. I have had to delete quite a number of emails [are forwards emails?] without even opening them, for lack of an opportune time to make an attempt at opening them.

Back in the day when we were in campus and had just discovered the joys of the Internet [and porn], this wouldn't be too bad. I'm reminded of a guy who even sent a certain image to the printer. Legendary stuff. Now, this is just a source of a lot of squirming, repositioning of monitors, incredibly fast clicking and scrolling. Who knew reading emails can be so tiring.

I have a group of such people whose forwards I delete without opening due to the nature of the content.
Forwards are not emails according to me, but most people seem to prefer them to the real stuff. I even dedicated one inbox to forwards only! I browse, yeah they are many, through them when am bored.

Not Safe For Work. I thought I'd indicated that already.

I told my friends to stop sending me forwards because I won't read them and they actually did!!
