Some mornings are just meant for unsubscribing to emails

Does anyone else out there have an email problem? It seems like I could spend time each morning of every day just opening emails I never signed up for to find how I can unsubscribe. Sometimes there is a link up near the email addresses that says “unsubscribe,” which seems to be the easiest way. Other emails have a link at the bottom that says something like, “Click here to unsubscribe or update your preferences.”

Without exaggerating, this really is a daily task. What makes me chuckle is the automated response that comes after some of the unsubscribes:

We’re sorry to see you go…?? Who is “we”? I’m pretty sure I never subscribed to, and why are they so sad to see me go? I guess maybe it’s because my empty slot on their robo-email list means they are bothering one less person? That IS sad. But surely they can spam a new person and then they’ll forget all about me.

Do you get these emails daily like I do? Have you figured out a way to avoid spam emails? If so, share in the comments and thank you 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
