Spam Email Amusement Park

Sausage becomes a metaphor for a weaker side vulnerable to being eaten by cats
Sausage becomes a metaphor for a weaker side vulnerable to being eaten by cats

Replying to spam email is not something that can be done for real but it can be done in a hub! Doing it gives you insights into your own need for trust and what destroys it.

Sausage(not his real name) finds a lot of spam in his inbox and even more in his spam box but he doesn't have to go there. Sausage are you on tonight?

REPLY: I know it's friday night and I know you know, end of the week and I've had a hard week at work so tonights the night, lets do it. Are you thinking I want to - I'll be your electric sausage and baby you can turn me on!

Actually, NO. I'm not really a love crazy electric sausage and I'm not on tonight.

Someone wants to chat with you.

REPLY: really? Well how come the last time you sent me an email - from your trusted updates - you had a job for me and now you seem to have changed to a matchmaker? What's going on. Preying on lonely people is not very nice.

Sausage get in quick before its gone FOREVER.

REPLY: Do you think I will not be able to resist opening this up because FOREVER is a long time? I wouldn't want to miss out, would I. I did think about it and you knew I would. Well actually you've lost all my trust with a line like that because, trually, would you do business with someone who made ultimatums? Would that be good practice? Please think about what I'm telling you.

Sausage, congratulations, your work at home job has been approved

REPLY: I never applied for a work at home job so I'm not sure what you are talking about but thanks for the approval - everyone needs approval especially in childhood so we can feel secure about ourselves and so we don't become NEEDY for approval later in life and vulnerable to people with shallow motives. Together lets make sure children go forward and hold their heads up and if you happen to see someone down don't you trample them. That's a fine motto.

$ausage earn $75/hr working from home

REPLY: Well, for a while now you've been telling me to hurry before the offer is gone and now you are telling me the offer is still there and I can still have the job and earn $75/hr. I see you keep changing with your trusted updates using different people (I assume affiliates)?

Changing opportunities doesn't mean you've learned to think about SERVICE to others.If you offered the same thing over and over, I could trust that more as it shows commitment to the one ideal.

Sorry, that sounds harsh. I see you changing your opportunities and I feel there is no real connection here beyond a shallow motive to exploit so I wont be taking up your opportunity.

Developing trust on the internet is hard, very hard, so where do you think TRUST develops from? Please start thinking more along those lines and rememberĀ if you happen to see someone down don't you trample them. That's a fine motto!

      Thanks Drbj, yes I did know there is a button called delete but it's the number of times I have to press it - I don't have the time!

      @Shadesbreath - the cat I paid for from BIGSTOCK - a photo/image site.

      LOL, poor Sausage, I see he's on the same spam lists I am. It's funny, me and a few people at work sort of do this kind of thing sometimes outloud when we get a particularly funny one, or when we get teh same one like thirty times in a row.

      (Did you draw that cat with the meat up top?)
