Classmates.com


Classmates.com is employing all the tricks in the book to try to suck $2.46 a month out of me and I am not going to fall for it! Of course they tell you someone has viewed your profile or better yet, they email you to tell you someone has signed your guestbook, but they won't tell you who until you pay them $2.46 a month. Yeah, right. I will not fall to the fantasy: maybe it is some boy I liked in high school trying to contact me, maybe he is still pining in his love for me, and still devastatingly handsome and still single. Maybe we will e-mail until the class reunion where we will finally fall into true love. Note* This is not my line of logic, but what they want you to fall for.

They also e-mail you to tell you that someone in your class, or maybe not your class--but someone who graduated within 5 years of you--has posted a picture of themselves. But can you view it? No. Not until you pay them $2.46 a month. Wow. You know I'm really dying to see the "then" and "now" picture of one J.Berry, which turns out to be James Berry. My life is not complete until I can see those photos! Yeah. Right. Alas, I can wait until the high school reunion to see James Berry who was the unfortunate start of my unfortunante nick name that origionted in the unfortunate excellerated biology class in the 8th grade~.

P.S. No offense meant if you pay money to this site. It is only my expressed opinion.

This is so weird that you brought this up. I recieved an email from C.J. from Moses Lake through Classmates. I haven't heard from him in ages so I couldn't resist. OH well. I fought it for a long time though. ;)

They keep bugging me too, but since all the people I actually want to talk to already have my email and vice versa, no luck for them. Also, E, it wasn't J.Berry it was K.Plaisted that christened you with that unfortunate nickname. He and B. Kayser. That was an unfortuante biology table all around, wasn't it.

I also think particularly since the reunion email was sent out, I have been recieving extra propaganda.

C.J. emailed you through classmates.com? REally. Hmmm. Yeah, and that was an unfortunate biology table. Actually, if I am honest with myself 9 1/2 years later, I enjoyed the attention. I'll admit it. Three boys and me, it was actually a jackpot. Now, not the hottest selection to be sure....LOL. But seriously $2.46 times 12 months a year....is it worth it? Nah.

I've never heard of that site and now I'm intrigued!! That's all I want are current photos and bios! Then there's no need to go to the reunion . . . which I really don't want to go to anyway -- everyone I liked then, I still like . . . AND vice-versa
:D

Panini, you need to sign up on it because it gives you class reunion announcments and everything without paying. Its just the fun stuff that costs money. And we really should go you know? We can go together all of us and stun them all! jk ;)

Panini said...
