OK, it started innocently enough. My friend and I were talking about our jobs and I confided in her that I recently got a job as a pso (phone sex operator) and she is really open minded about things so she was fine about it, or so I thought.
I go to craigslist.com a lot, and I got an e-mail about a certain post I should look at. And there was a post there that read: (paraphrasing)
Cute fat chick wants d*ck for cash.
I was mortified. She gave out my e-mail address and I had, like, 20 e-mails with nasty pics and asking what do I charge. I immidiatly took off the post and I talked to my friend about it. She said it was just a joke, but this is a joke gone too far. She doesn't think so, but I think so. What do you guys think?

I think it is funny, as long as I'm not on the recieving end... err, that came out wrong. I mean as long as I wasn't the butt of the joke, well, that is still bad. I suppose what I mean to say, as a casual observer, I think it is sorta funny, but if it was my mail box that was being filled with naked pictures of girls that only want me for my body... wait, where is the down side?

You know what I am trying to say is that I would hate if it was done to me, and so I would never do that to someone. However, the idea and seeing it done (protesting to the antagonist the whole time), would still bring an evil grin and laugh to face.

It gets a bit worse: she lied about it until I pointed out that she used her own cell phone on the add. Red handed much????
Everything's all sorted out but I'm still clueless as to why she did it. Eh, what 'cha gonna do?

I remember middle school being a string of such occrences. Ususally it seems like a lot of fun until you set the joke in motion or it gets out of control. This is definitely a joke gone too far.

Also, that throat-crushing advice i gave you was for self defence, in case you were tempeted...

When the W'rkncacnter came, Pthia was killed, and Yrro in anger, flung the W'rkncacnter into the sun. The sun burned them, but they swam on its surface.
