AOL Email Is Acting Up

Next time you send an email using AOL, send a copy to yourself. I recently noticed that the spacing between paragraphs on my emails is tripled or quadrupled. Also the typeface gets very large. And there's code stuck on the ends of my sentences.

I called Beverly in Bangladesh and she said that several people were complaining of this very same problem. I don't know if it's just a MAC problem or a general AOL problem. But Beverley assured me that she could feel my pain and they were working to take care of the issue as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, before I discovered how stupid AOL was making my emails look, I sent a couple out to important people. People who would think I was a complete idiot for sending out such cockamammy emails.

And I was at a loss over how to explain what happened. Dear President of A Big Company: As you no doubt noticed, there were a whole lot of spaces between each paragraph in the email I recently sent you. I don't usually have that much space between the paragraphs that I write. No, really. They weren't intended at all. You see, there was a glitch in my AOL internet service that caused a bunch of strange things to happen. You know all the html script at the end of each sentence -- AOL's fault. The very large type -- AOL again. Yep, not my fault.

Then I realized I couldn't send an email to explain what happened, because it would just happen again.

So I just hoped they would ignore all the crap and read between the ?nspb's. Who am I kidding? Clearly it's time to get a gmail account. Each day, having an AOL email address gets more and more like driving a Yugo.

With the "foreclosure" of AOL and the evictions underway, I guess your arrival proves the adage:

"You can take the 'hood out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the 'hood."

Get jiggy wid it, Mrs. L.
