..it's around 4:00PM, and I'm incredibly busy. Then a voice comes over the building's intercom system, and asks everyone on the 2nd floor to please leave the building. Ok, well we're on the 3rd floor so everything must be fine. But just to be safe our office manager gives the receptionist a call. Instead of the polite receptionist, he gets a Police officer who informs him that the entire building is to be evacuated immediately. Why? Who knows. Just get the fuck out. So we get the fuck out, and go stand in the rain for a while. As it turns out, one of the other companies in our building (that sends out massive amounts of email spam each day) received a letter from an angry internet user. What did the envelope contain? Anthrax. Well not anthrax, but a mysterious powdery substance. No letter. Just powder. So we stood in the rain making jokes about "terrorists" and such, waiting for someone official (out of the 2 police cars, 2 fire engines, 2 ambulances, and one hazardous materials unit) to let us know that we weren't going to die. Good fucking times.
So why did I post this in "Dumb Ideas"? Here's why.
Hey, jackass who sends threatening powder to offices in order to make your point about the outrage of receiving junk mail to your (almost definitely) free email account, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!11
I'm totally sure the big bad spammers have learned their lesson and will cease and desist immediately. Expect to receive a 'Thank You' basket full of candy and free male enhancement pills soon. They really want to express their gratitude for showing them the error of their ways.
