I’ve become the Snopes b*tch.
I’m sorry, y’all. I just can’t stand when I receive e-mail after e-mail after e-mail filled with pure, unadulterated crap. And yes, I could leave it all alone, delete the message (my rule of thumb is the more “FW:’s” I have to go through, the quicker the thing gets deleted), and move on.
But I can’t stop at that. I take the fifteen seconds it takes to go to Snopes, or Truth or Fiction, or whatever, determine the veracity of the message, and shoot a link to the offending e-mailer.
I’m now THAT person. The one that shoots down grandiose rumors and dire warnings with a couple of keystrokes.
Somebody’s gotta be the bad guy.
