The SCN Encourager – Friday, February 22, 2013

SCN’s been hacked. OK. Who’s the wise guy?

I laughed it off when Burger King’s Twitter account was hacked earlier this week and McDonald’s took advantage of the occasion to tweet out their condolences.

But now that it’s happened to me – in my own in-box no less – I’m not laughing.

At first, I resisted the temptation to open the “This Fits You Perfectly” message. But then when I received the follow-up nudger “It’s a Special Day for You – and others like you!” I just had to click.

So I poked the link and now I regret it. I should’ve left well enough alone. And not because the teaser headlines were inaccurate about me, either. No, their target marketing hit the bullseye.

With one click I discovered that the website actually fits me to a T.  Who’d-a-thunk it? So as much as I hate to admit it, I had to sign up. I guess I should look on the bright side. This site isn’t for just anybody. Most of you probably don’t possess the personality and qualifications this club demands.

Unfortunately, I do.  (Enjoy your weekend!)
