Just a Heads Up

I'm as big a fan of the forwarded emails as the next joker; however, there is a little something that people should realize. Most of the forwarded emails you get warning you about something or other, or claiming some wrong doing of some kind aren't true. Examples: Starbucks and sending the troops coffee, dialing such and such a number so that people can make free calls off of your line, dialing *whatever to reach the highway patrol and a bunch of others that I'm not thinking of. If you love forwarding on these emails to help out your friends, try verifying their validity by visiting www.snopes.com first. It's easy and it's free. Just type in a few key words into the search field and voila! You'll undoubtedly find out whether or not your treasured email is true or false and you won't look like a doof for falling for scams and circulating rumors. Thanks and have a nice day.
