read this entry for a free phone

i received a forwarded mail in one of my recreational mailing list this morning:

align=left hspace=12> guy a:

style='color:blue'>Dear All.

can’t imagine how gullible people could be. of which one guy

guy b: style='color:red'>Bang xxx, ni betui ka ? nampak macam scam aje...

fair enough. by which theotheraj

i won! i won!

no lah.. this is an
old scam

i have to get into the piece of action. of which i replied.

Wei, takdela, betoi tu!!! Itu hari pkns pun ada buat lebih kurang macam tu tapi kena hantar kat
tiga ribu orang. So bila aku abih hantar kat tiga ribu orang tu terus je dia
e-mail kunci rumah free sebijik kat seksyen 9 kota damansara rumah yang aku
duduk sekarang...

which then i didn’t check my e-mail for
like one hour or so. little that i know that my e-mail had generated some
interesting responses. when i got back to my place, somebody actually called me
asking me whether was it true that i won a free house!!! duh… it was sooo
difficult for me to hold back my laughter while talking to him on the phone of
which i said i was on the verge of replying my e-mail and please wait for the
answer. among the interesting replies that i saw when i came back:

haa.. aku rasa kau penah bagitau kat aku pasal menang rumah tu.. lupa lupa.. my bad
(still following my lead)

guy c: mcm mana dia attached kunci kat email tu bang? apa rahsia??
(also following my lead, without my clarification, you’d think this guy think
that i’m serious)

tekan Ctrl+Alt+Del+K

of then which i replied: style='color:red'>Tak la. Kena tekan ctrl-alt-del-m-e-n-g-a-r-u-t. Semua kena
tekan sekaligus and tak bole tekan yang lain else tak jadi. so susah sikit tapi
try lama-lama bole dapat.

then, the witty guy c replied: woaaaa bang nak tekan semua tu kena pakai 11 jari.. tgn ada 10 jari.. mana jari satu lagi kau ambik??

itu bukan jari

by this time i was already laughing my head off alone in my room. but with the wise decision of not to prolong this
pointless chain of mails, i’ve decided not to reply anymore before somebody got
irritated being spammed and let it die

who says you can’t have fun sitting alone inside the room? the clean way, i mean (you one-tracked-mind people!!!)
