Yet Another Reason to Dislike Clogs


Here's a snapshot from my personal email folder:


Look, I don't know how the Clogs got my email address. Maybe they found it here on Blogger. I'm pretty sure I can block them though. But as an opportunity for us all to learn something from my upsetting experience, let's keep this in mind:

Stalking: To harass or persecute someone with obsessive, unwanted attention.

Cyberstalking: Repeatedly sending messages that include threats of harm or are highly intimidating; or engaging in other online activities that make a person afraid for their safety.

Clogs, you've been put on notice. It's not funny anymore. Everyone knows I don't like you, I have never liked you, and your attention is not wanted. I hope this is the last time I hear from you. If not, I'm going to notify the authorities.

Regards,

Mandy

  1. I loves me some clogs. Not ALL clogs. Just the pair I've had since 1999 (ouch!)

    Even though I did "fall off" of my clog and break my foot, I still love them. *true story*

    Maybe you just haven't found the right pair?

  2. I was quite fond of a pair of clogs I owned.

    They were great for going clothes shopping, when you're repeatedly taking things off and putting them on.

    If it's any consolation, I can't unsubscribe from a certain Senator's online newsletter.

    Sheesh.

  3. @Michon: It sounds to me like you're in an abusive relationship.

    @La Piazza: Perhaps you understand my pain then.

  4. Well technically clogs couldn't be stalking you because they're so noisy there's no way they could sneak up on you. I know this for a fact since my daughter is right now clunking around the house in a pair of classic wooden-soled clogs (pink, naturally).

  5. @Sharyn: Okay but they could still cyber stalk me.

  6. Ba haha! It's as if they know you dislike them and are doing it ON PURPOSE. *dramatic music*

  7. Exactly! I don't get any emails from "Stiletto" or "Mary Jane" or even "Ballet Flat." It's a Clog Conspiracy.

  8. Do crocs fall under the category of clogs? If so, I fully concur and validate your hatred.

  9. I believe it is a foam clog, so yes. Yes it is.

  10. Clearly, the clog company got our email addresses mixed up. If I'm in the same room as a pair of stilettos, my feet hurt. But clogs? I love them. I look past their clumsy appearance and slip back into their comfortable, enduring embrace. My soles rejoice. Clogs are my friends.

  11. I do understand your pain.

    At the same time, I'd ask you to reconsider the slip 'em on, kick 'em off convenience clogs offer the person shopping for her next pair of baby-making-pants.

    : )

  14. Clearly, and obviously, intent to harass.

    You don't wear clogs..clogs are for people like me, that have to walk through fields of cowpoop.

  15. You think that's bad? Someone tell whoever runs the junk mail servers to stop telling me I need to enlarge my sample. My sample is large enough, thank you very much!

  16. Sere: I bought a pair of ballet flats recently and they gave me a blister. The stilettos have never done me wrong.

    La Piazza: You can't even say "clogs" and "baby-making pants" in the same sentence. I think it violates some sort of law or something.

    Happy Enough: Thank you.

    Wow: Clogs are made of people? OMG it's worse than I thought!!!!

    Ali: That's what pot makes me think of and you don't see me smoking a bowl.

    The Empress: Thank you for seeing things clearly as I do.

    Richard: Hey I get those same ads and I don't even have a sample.

  19. I think you might find a pair simmering in your pasta pot soon. Watch out.

  20. @Susan in the Boonies: I'm plugging my ears and singing "Lalala."

    @Pearl: They're only half a shoe for goodness' sake!

    @Mel Heth: Srsly.

  21. You are being cyber stalked?
    Ah, No wonder I felt ignored when you passed me up after I made a wise crack about picking up women. You are assuming all men want to stalk you, Nah just a couple of goofballs probably. Just block the email, be happy. ) but call the cops if they ever harass you . If someone sucks, you just block them, Block their ISP number. Get a proxy thing, whatever works

  22. I hope you don't think I was serious about getting pickup info from fashion info I pick up ...)

  23. \Oh Mandy I sounded nasty , I sounded like I was making fun of you. I really should have not said you were thinking all men stalk you. I can be really stupid , sorry ,really. Hope things improve.
    that's all )

  24. @The Last Santa: I didn't assume you were being nasty. You are always so kind! I also didn't see the comments until just now so I saw them all in a chain. But I really do think those shoes are stalking me. ;-)
