It's Just Tacky

So today I received an IM from someone who I don't even know. I've never her met her in person, but we were in an online message group. I don't even know how she got my email but nonetheless I am on her contact list. I haven't spoken to her ever really and certainly never had any type of email transactions with her. I'm sure she's a nice person, but like I said I don't know her. She IM'd me to tell me about her cousin's website that has bracelets for sale.

I use her as an example because I get different emails from people I have never met but somehow ended up on their contact list and everytime they have a new adventure as an independent consultant of some type I am lucky enough to hear about it.

Don't get me wrong, I like an invite to this or that but seriously, if you don't know a person why spam them? I just think it's tacky. Yes, I know I can just delete the email and I do but why should I even have to be plagued by such nonsense?

That's not to say I don't like the invite to parties of people I actually know (unless you went down the ward roster, have never spoken to me but thought I might like an invite to something you are hosting...that falls in the same tacky category). If I know you, we have had a conversation or two (or many) by all means invite and trust me I am brave enough to say no if it's something that doesn't interest me or I can't make it.

That's my rant of the day.

Shoot, I hope I'm not one of "those" people. I just love to invite everybody to a girls night. But I have talked to you before, I promise.

Nah Becky, you are safe!! I'm talking about people I really don't know...

I hate that too!!! I don't like the invites that people pass out at church that they just give one to everyone in the whole relief society. LOL! When that happens, (unless I 'know' them, and feel like they actually want ME there, and not just another warm body) it's like.....'Ummmm...have we met?'
