Humour in Irony
Earlier at the shop today, I received an SMS/text message and to my utter annoyance, my inbox was lagging! Ugh, it was as if it was lazily taking a stroll down the park before I finally get to open this single message and I knew immediately who the culprit was: ME.

I admit, I tend to be quite passive with the number of messages I've forgotten to delete in my inbox. I would read a message, reply, and poof! totally forget about "cleaning up". So it just piles up there, slowly eating up my phone's internal memory space and then finally, it comes full circle and bites me on my hind side. Again, bravo to myself for the self-pwnage. Haha

Whilst I was going through my gazillions of text messages that are seriously, a waste of inbox space, a certain forwarded message caught my eye. I remember laughing hysterically when I received this message so I'm going to share it to you.

5 Pearls of Wisdom To Remember

1. Money can't buy you happiness, but somehow, it's more glamorous to cry in a BMW than in a bus;

2. Forgive your enemy, but remember the bastard's name;

3. Help a man when he is in trouble and he will remember you when he screws up again;

4. Many people are alive ONLY because it's illegal to shoot them;

5. Alcohol doesn't solve any problem, but then again, neither does milk.

Needless to say, I cleaned up my inbox, deleted all the unnecessary messages that I had been too lazy to delete the moment I was done replying to them, and saved this one. It sure doesn't fail to make me chuckle whenever I read this. So yup, this one's a keeper.

Post Script: I created a Facebook Page of my blog a few weeks ago, and it would totally make my day if you, my dear readers, would press the "Like" button on that page. It would be a nice way for us to interact at a more spontaneous platform than here on blogger. Click here to take you to my Facebook page or at the right sidebar. Thanks heaps! ♥ ♥ ♥

I need to clean out my is bad! And also, this is officially why we are e-sisters...I say the SAME thing...I'd rather be miserable in my own jaguar than on public bus! It's totally true, money doesn't buy happiness but to be miserable and without money...that is the worst!

My phone company does not limit my inbox but it is worse: I get charged more for all of the space I keep!!


Anyway, thanks for sharing the inbox fun.

Hahaha! "Alcohol doesn't solve problems, but then again, neither does milk" - so true!! Alcohol clouds problems, which somehow is good for temporary relief.

This is a funny post, where have I been?! lol
