to hell with your privacy dear!

Yesterday, in the evening I received an SMS from Ufone’s Web2SMS service with the typical message:

Hey! Sara wants to chat with you from Ufone Web Chat. Reply with “Y” to connect to Ufone WEB2SMS. Thanks

Having not known a Sara all my life and lately being fed-up with Ufone’s clumsy service, I passed the message. Another one came a few hours later. Let me tell you, I’d never been fan of people connecting to me without paying a penny, so I passed this one too. But when the third one came, flustered, I punched Y on the keypad sceptically and bah!

Sara: R u coming 2 ROZEE JOB FAIR @ Fortress Expo Center on Sun Apr 2? SAVE Rs 100 fee. Register on [I don’t really want to share those pimps’ website]. See u there!

These marketing guys never cease to amaze you. I can’t recall when was the last time I was interested in such a fair. Next, I fear some chinaman would be trying to sell me earrings!
