Thank You Very Much

I have heard horror stories of awful comments bloggers sometimes get. Somehow (knock on wood, cross my fingers, do a funny dance) I have been pretty free from weird/rude/disgusting comments.

But well, after my "30 Things I am Going to Do This Summer" post, I got one comment that started off well enough but then... well the rest just needs a Thank you Very Much letter.

Here is part of the comment for your enjoyment:
"Just wondering why getting fit is not in your list.. you have to! After my wife got birth a bought him some health products to keep him shape and healthy."

Dear Atan-
Thank you so much for commenting on my blog, I love comments, especially ones that make me laugh so hard I tinkle a bit so considerate as yours. First off, your wife is probably a her... just a guess. But hey maybe not, and who am I to judge.

And you are so right, after having my guts cut open to give birth to a premature baby getting fit again is on the top of my list. Who cares that the Dr's said not to lift anything heavier than my baby for six weeks, I want to be healthy and fit, especially for my husband as your wife did for you.

And how considerate of you to buy health products for your wife. I hope she used those health products to smack you upside the head. And yes I did notice in your comment that "health products" was linked up to something, but sorry inconsiderate sucker your little ploy didn't work on me. Can't be too safe on this world-wide-web thing you know. And just some friendly advice, if you are trying to sell some legitimate health care products, you might want to think more carefully or at all in your case about who your target audience is and how you approach them.

Best of luck to you. Hope you and your skinny man wife are happy and healthy.

The lady who just had a baby

  1. Oh, good grief. Was there a link to the health products he thought you should buy?

    Maybe it was just a stupid spammer.

  2. LMAO. Way to go! I've never thought about writing a thank You letter to anyone like that before. LOVES IT!!

  3. That's funny! I always wonder how these strange commenters find blogs!

  4. Oh you poor thing! And that is exactly why I moderate my comments. LOL!

    Some people! Oy!

    Have a fabulous day!

  5. Touche! Very well put. I am thinking his man/wife probably shot him. :P

  6. I've been getting a few things like that lately too! Sometimes, I swear, they will just copy and paste a portion of someone else's comment, and then leave a link to their "product". Ummm, not gonna happen, weirdo! I really hope I don't have to start using the word verification thing again!

  7. I think he should worry if he is not sure of the sex of his wife. Really worry. And how good of you to laugh and not be offended! Hilarious.

  8. Oh my goodness! That may be the best TYVM letter ever! I laughed all the way through. I may have to save some of the stuff in my SPAM filter and comment on it instead of throwing it all out. Too funny!

    New follower!

  9. Well, that's one company that's never getting a penny out of you! I loved your letter ripping him a new one. :)

  10. Oh my goodness. SO FUNNY! Amy's comment made me snort!

    I haven't been over in so long. You had your baby? YAY!! I hope that even though he/she (I can't remember, but I"m off to go and find out!) is doing well, and that you are as well!

    Thanks for linking up!

  11. Ha-ha, Emmy. Hilarious! I'm so proud of you for showing him who is boss in your blog!

  12. LOL. You go girl. Keep that nonsense off your blog!

  13. How awful that he insulted you to get you to buy his products. Sheesh!

  14. Oh my gosh, Emmy! That is the best Thank You EVER!!
    I just laughed out loud and I hope I didn't wake any of the children.
    I get weird Chinese comments but I NEVER investigate where they come from!!
    I also giggled when you said "tinkle"
    My Grandma used to say that. Loved it!

  15. Hysterical! I get 10 or more spam comments a day! I don't know what I did to be so popular with them! My favorite from this last week was on my post about Riley and the blood bath. Just a picture of fingernail polish all over her but if you didn't know it was finger nail polish it looked like blood everywhere! Anyway some spammer told me how educational a post it was and thanked me for almost 5 sentences over and over again on the value of my post. I guess they learned a lot from the moral of the story. Never do dishes when you have an adventurous three year old!

  16. Great letter. I get dumb spam like this too. But it was rude to make it sound like you need to work out. Sheesh.

  17. You are hilarious.

    My Husband keeps getting emails from "apple". Yes, with a lowercase "a" and they are offering him free computers and ipads if he'll just pay the shipping and tax. The best part is how they even address his concerns by telling him that "this is not a scam". :-)
