The G-ds are just taunting me now!

I forgot to write about something that happened a few weeks ago. For those of you who know this story already, sorry!

I received an email a few weeks ago that said,

"Hi Everyone, Here are some pictures of Baby Lastname from Thanksgiving week (I was 16 1/2 weeks when they were taken).....now I'm almost 18!! Almost halfway there, and loving being pregnant!!.....We can't wait to meet our little one! Love, Amy"

This email was accompanied by 8, yes 8 pictures of Amy, at different angles, showing her growing belly.

Annoying, right? Well, here's the kicker - I have no bloody idea who this person is! I wracked my brain trying to figure out who she is and how I know her and, nothing, nada, zip - I have no friggin' clue who she is.

Not willing to let it rest, I emailed her back and asked who she was and she responded that, oops, she didn't know me either but I must have been added to her address book from a forward and she just quickly picked names to send this to!

You quickly picked names to send pregnant pictures of yourself??? OK, chickie, you should know who you're sending your stupid emails to!

Pregnant pictures from someone I don't even know. Lovely.

I truly wish Amy, her husband, and her unborn child all the best. I just hope I don't have to see anymore pictures of them!

Of all of the people in the universe to send this to, you should be the last person. Unbelievable and so unnecessary - it never ceases to amaze me at how thoughtless people can be when they are wrapped up in their joy.

I'm so sorry that you had to see that and had to deal with the clueless sender.

WTH?! That is really messed up-- insensitivity to your situation aside, who sends out mass emails with large picture attachments to people they don't know?!

Dreamer4agift said...

Wow, why in the world would she even pick out random addresses to send them to if she didn't even know off-hand who it was going to? Seriously, how stupid. Sorry you had to even deal with it.

Cassandra said...

I wonder if the recipient list will be so indiscriminate for the photos of the birth process! ;)

Maria said...

Oh no! Of all the mistakes to make! Wow. I always say that God has a sense of humor....I hope you can laugh about this in the future. Until then....it just plain sucks.

Ugh. One more reason to reflect on the good old days of snail mail and phone calls!

Miserable indeed!

Anyways....on a different note....hope you have a wonderful Christmas!


ICLW Trippin'!

Laura said...

Oh that is sooooo wrong. Isn't that just the Murphy's Law of Infertility? I'm hoping that you have a very Merry Christmas! And perhaps you should send some pictures of your own back to her :). ICLW

Cara said...

Taunting? Yup - or maybe more like flaunting.

So sorry this came your way, especialliy during this charged time of year.

Unbelievable!

I'm so sorry that you had to deal with such an insensitive and self-centred woman.

lostintranslation said...

Wow, that's unbelievably stupid and insensitive. Some people still don't know what netiquette, or worse, common sense, is. Sorry you had to deal with this. *ICLW*

Modern Orthodox IF said...

that's a crazy story!! So sorry you had to deal with that!

People are not bright. Sorry you had to get that email.

Have a great holiday.

Karen said...

Wow, that really is cosmic black humor, isn't it? I would NOT have received that well, especially around the holidays. And would her own mother even want to see 8 pictures of a belly? I think not.

Michelle said...

OMG that is the worst. Pregnant pictures and to top off you don't even know the person...sorry that sucks!

UNREAL..... I mean - it's bad enough we have to pull it together for the people in our life that our important to us but this? A complete stranger, hmmnp - like I said unreal.

I am so sorry that you had to go through that.

That's classic! It would so happen to me. I'd send her back some pics of your empty uterus to make it even. I'm late catching up on my ICLW duties. Nice to find your blog
