Remember how we learned a great way to unsubscribe from those annoying email updates? Well, welcome to a new and improved technique.
The other day I noticed that I’ve been getting a lot of emails from Mets.com. You know, the baseball team. Which is weird because although I like them fine, and have recently gone so far as to change my favorite player from Ike David to Lucas Duda, I don’t see why they should be writing me so often. Related, I have no idea what their emails mean. “Mets Select Gavin and Kevin in Draft!” the last one announced. I hate when people send emails like that. I mean, they’re obviously fishing for a gift and I’m on a budget.
I told Young Ladrinka about it. He’s a huge Mets fan, so I figured he must have some pull.
“Why am I getting these insane emails?” I asked him.
“Because I signed up with Mets.com and I had to put in an email address to do it,” he explained , dusting his Johan Santana shrine.
“So why didn’t you put in your own email address?” I asked.
“I didn’t want to keep getting spam from them,” he told me.
“Yes,I can see how that would be inconvenient,” I conceded.
“Oh, if they ever send something important, like Get Drafted for the Mets! send it to me, ok?”
If necessity is the mother of invention, laziness is definitely the father.
