I read a story once, about two girls who used to play together all the time. They used to talk long hours, to laugh a lot and to be extremely happy of having each other around. To make the long story short, technology came to town and one of them got a TV. Soon, she didn’t go out to play anymore no matter how loud her friend called her from the front yard. The other girl, alone in the park, cried and cried thinking that the TV set, that big box with people inside, had swallowed her friend. There were no more games, no more conversations, no more laughing and sadly, as the time went by, one finally forgot the other.
How can this story be connected to PPS files? Well, let’s say that almost all my friends were swallowed by PPS in the same way that the TV set ate that poor girl. Call me crazy if you want, but I don’t know anything about them since forwarded PPSs took their lives.
I mean, I do get messages from their e-mail accounts, but I’m under the impression that it’s not actually them who send the messages after all.
Imagine, all of a sudden almost all the people you love stop telling you about their lives, they also stop asking about yours. You don’t know what they have been, are or will be up to, how their families are doing; in fact, you basically stop having a friend to talk with. Sad, isn’t it?
Nevertheless, you get their mails day after day, but if you look carefully before opening them, you will always see that there’s an attached file, Guess what? A pps fileeeeeee! And believe me, it won’t be a picture of their babies or their last vacation or anything related to them, but rather another long and ten thousand times forwarded message that happened to get to your inbox.
I must admit that some pps files are pretty good; however, I would love, at least once in a while, to get a personal mail, just one to be sure that my friends, together with their families, still exist. Is that too much to ask? Not a forwarded message, I need an “attachmentless” and personal mail with a few words or a few questions: Analia, are you ok? We are doing fine. How’s your family? Please, keep in touch.
Wouldn’t that be awesome!!!!
Well, I got to go. I have same e-mails to send and some files to attach. See ya!
