Unsubscribe me!

Amazing what I get in my email inbox every day. Let’s just say it’s a lot of spam, and not the kind I like to eat with eggs. I click “UNSUBSCRIBE” and then I still get the same thing next day. What are some of these gems?

1)      Vydox Male Enhancement. I get up to 10 of these messages a day and I ask myself, “Why me?!” At the end of the sales pitch, every message includes something to this effect: “If you experience an erection for more than 4 hours, seek medical help.” Well, an old guy like me who needed this kind of help might just say, “Line up the nurses, I’m on my way.”

2)     Online college courses, from Associate’s degree to Ivy League. I’m a Boomer. Do I need this now? I click NO, but I get an inquiry every day anyway.

3)     Belly Fat Blast – messages asking me if know the four foods that destroy fat and the seven food chemicals that cause fat. Who, me?!  I’m still eating my Milky Ways that are left from Halloween.

4)     Hair solutions – how to grow new hair. Why do I want to grow new hair when it’s already growing nicely in my nose and ears? I’m more interested in transplanting that hair to where it’s needed.

Bottom line, this is the tip of the iceberg. It’s all a big waste of my time clicking delete.

I’d like to invite them to advertise here on BoomerReviews.com instead. That way someone can click on their ad if they want to learn more!

What shows up in your email daily that you could do without, especially when you keep trying to unsubscribe?

I grew up in Golden, CO in the 50’s, the child of a middle class housewife and a lifelong employee of the U.S. Post Office. My professional career spanned 25 years with the U.S. Government and I retired early. Today I am an Aging-in-Place Specialist (which does not mean I just sit in a recliner and watch football), a devoted “Papa” to my grandchildren and partner to my lovely wife. I’m a crusty old fart who appreciates a good cigar, an old car, an occasional game of golf, Blue Collar Radio, NASCAR and my Denver Broncos. At BoomerReviews.com, I hold the title, “Chief of Questions.” Let’s see what you think about my questions and answers. Chime in!
