Sometime back, I had written about the weird messages people send/forward. I believe this one can go almost as a series. Once again, their names are with- held. I really don’t want them to get (in)-famous through my blog. Let them find their own way to do that.
Maybe they actually have!
“A chain of prayers has been started to help the Japan quake victims. We will pray (and bull$h!+) The least you can do is not break the chain and forward..”
All I can say is “leave me alone; my own survival is slogging on the edge of a razor blade- let me handle that. The least you can do is GET LOST”
Yes, the contents were more or less on the same lines. I am referring to my reply.
This is what I have to say. Go ahead n make a donation. Who is stopping you? Apparently, the 10 bucks that you spend on sending that sms (inclusive of one day rent, sms charges, surcharges, service tax and misc); could be used wisely. You could probably donate it! If you think that won’t make much of a difference, then you are damn right. Our own country is slogging enough. Why don’t you pick up one of the orphanages and start donating? Once we have more people with better standards of living; perhaps more number of people would be able to help monetarily on such mishaps.
Oh well..It’s complicated!
If this was not enough to bug me; I receive another set of messages (on FB). “Pics” of the recent ceremony/function/occasion/I care not whatever. I am not referring to “uploads”. I am talking about the personal messages that I receive from time to time about some of their family functions.
- I don’t know the people captured in the images excepting the sender.
- The chances are that I would never ever get to meet them!
- If at all; I should have met them before receiving their “pics”
- For crying out loud; you could have invited me over!
That’s right! It seems those pics are “forwarded” with an intention to tease. C’mon, why on earth are you sending the “pics” when I am technically an hour away from your house on a bad traffic day and a phone call away literally?
I also don’t care about the mails like
- “Patience is Trusting God’s Timing” (I think I’m being God here; since I am taking all of it patiently)
- “BEWARE OF YOUR MOBILE HAZARD” (maybe that’s why you don’t use it- or is it me that makes it hazardous..?)
- “Latest from Nursery school :)” (I don’t have/want to have kids for a reason. But thanks for making sure that I am not missing out on catching up with the latest going on about kids)
- “World’s youngest CEO – Do U wan to be ????” (Did that lesson work for you? Or have you become divine enough to forward sermons? Then again, the Gurus do it all by themselves before preaching..)
Over 10 sms a day is not a fun thing. That is from just one of the offenders. If spams (plot available, get married, get slim, learn how to speak, stage fright, whatever nonsensical subject you could possibly think of) aren’t enough to deal with; I get to read messages like how a woman is so great since she slides out certain inches (of baby) from her certain inches hole!
If I were to bang my head on the wall, the poor wall would get red in shame (with bloodstains).
I mean get real. I have no business talking about your personal life. However, if even after what you have gone through sadly, have not made you learn the nuances; the chances are that you’ll keep slogging. And I am not sorry for saying so! Whatever happened to level of maturity? Travelling to “foreign” land made no difference. You still follow the English (or even vernacular) that is being spoken in JJ colonies! Really, the “educated” lot doesn’t talk about these subjects; instead, they work towards changing the mundane! There is a huge difference between being “literate” and “educated”.
Let me try asking you a small question. The deal is that you wouldn’t have to answer if you don’t want to. So here’s the question: why on “earth” or any other place (that I unfortunately) stumble upon you; have to read 10 damnation messages when you don’t read my blog (know what, the posts are original and not copied or lifted or forwarded) in even 10 days.. or even weeks? I too write about women. You would get to read more on the other issues related to her anatomy. If you care; you would also learn about my bit of social work.
If any of you is reading it here; kindly do not bother to send another sms/inbox/forward mail/explanation seeking mail/your family function pics mail. I don’t care even if the world is on fire. If you being my friend (so you claimed till you read this) never ever did what makes me happy or feel a little better; why should I be caring about the world who I would possibly never get to meet; especially if it’s on fire? Then again; if you think I am “uncharitable”, I don’t wish to harp upon my acts or initiative that I have ever taken to make my immediate circling society a better place to be in for women. I would let you think all of that about me as long as I don’t receive any of your wasteful and unconcerned email/sms.
Now go, R.I.P. for all I care!
