Spam in the middle of Nowhere

I was in the middle of nowhere, or so I thought. A hamlet high up on a hill. A place without water and electricity. A place where the only mode of transportation was two feet. A place without a primary health-care centre, or a store. A place not on the map. A place so beyond civilization, your mobile lost connectivity long before reaching there.
There, a beep was heard over the roar of the wind. My mobile managed to pull through a message. "Flat 15% off on all books till May 31", it read. Are we safe from spam anywhere?

Natasha - I love that 'photo!! And you know, that spam attack would be so annoying if you hadn't made it so funny in your Drabble. Or it would be funny if it weren't so annoying - one of the two. That is the "down side" of our "small world."

Chuck said...

That would be a negative...that is why they chose the name Spam!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

A sad commentary on today's world.
