I guess maybe I’m a bit obsessive compulsive, but checking my Gmail account and seeing there’s one new spam email in my spam box just bugs the crap out of me.
I’m talking about my main, personal real me email account. I never use it to sign up for anything, and only use it with a few friends, family and professional people.
You know how you check your email online and on the left it more or less looks like this:
So you know at a glance you have three new emails, and they’ve caught one spam.
But with me, it’s always
Always. I check my mail once per day, it’s Spam (1).
I check my mail every couple days, or once a week, it’s Spam (1).
When I check my mail I immediately go to my spam folder and delete that one spam email.
Within hours, there’s Spam (1).
Not two spams. Not ten. Not thirty. Not zero.
There is always one damn spam. No more, no less! Argggghhhhh!
Am I just OCD, or is Gmail purposely sending a spam email there so I know they’re being constantly vigilant against spam?
