WebEx, preschooler edition

My primary email address has been around a long time and so I get a lot of spam on it. I’m used it. My kids’ email addresses (they forward to me) do not get much, well mostly because they don’t use email.

The other day I got some spam from a big company (WebEx, owned by Cisco).

Hi Audrey,

My response:

Audrey would love to talk to you. She’s at preschool right now and then has to have lunch before naptime. Does 4pm work for you? She does like to use Skype to talk to her Grammy, so I’m sure she’ll take right to hosting meetings on webex. Saving money will be great for her as she just got a piggybank.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Jeff (Audrey’s father)

  1. Jeff,

    Great story about the spam to Audrey.
    Made me truly laugh out loud.

    I found your site thru a google search for a GPS converter. I want to thank you for that application. It’s been quite helpful to me as, I have several GPS devices that use different methods for displaying the same location. Thanks to you, I have a better understanding.

  2. Love emails like this. Like you I like to have fun too. Let us know if you get a response.

    When you have some free time (who does these days) phone the rep and ask to hear about ALL of the ways they can save you money. Then ask them to repeat it again since you are still taking notes… 🙂
