Yesterday, I received an email emitted something about Be a Sister to Every Girl Scout. As I am a troop leader, I thought nothing of it when I opened it up, there is a camp coming up next month and I figured it had something to do with that. You can imagine my irritation when I read it is an invitation from another troop leader in my area (and when I say area, she is in the next state over) asking that I attend some function that she is holding in her new job and if I am interested, it is $30+ a month. You know, spam.
I don't know this woman. She probably is a troop leader but honestly, I have never seen her at any of our monthly meetings. She has picked up my email from our Girl Scout emails. I am not interested in her product. And my Death Star watermelon for my five year old's bday party, that starts in 15 minutes, has just taken a nose dive and crashed on the floor.
So I write back and I say, "Please remove me from your mailing list. I signed up for Girl Scouts, not spam." Probably could have gone without the spam part but I was being spammed and I did not care that information I gave to the Girl Scout's organization was being used on me.
This morning, I awoke to not one, or two, but THREE emails all basically saying that I am not being supportive of this woman and her new job. Really? I get spammed and then I get reprimanded because I speak out against the spam.
What do you think?
