New World Record

Ever since my beloved partner Andy signed up for some free-porn website, we have individually been inundated by spam. 

No, not the odd email about ‘Penis Enlargement’ or ‘Get Rich Quick’ schemes, I’m talking hundreds of emails EACH DAY.

After our IT man basically threatened us with violence – we called in Norton and Microsoft and finally got it sorted, except something mad must of happened last night, because when I turned on my computer this morning, I found I had received 2,467 emails – of which only 4 were legitimate.

Apart from the fact this means I’m deeply unpopular and Andy has been up to his tricks again – this surely is some sort of World Record! If it is, my Mum will be so proud, ha!!!
