Did you ever get an e-mail with the name of someone you know claiming to have sent it but find out they didn't? I have received a few of them over the years, they usually start out, " Hi " and then there's a link to a website. I googled the name of the website once and it was a bank in India. Yesterday I got an e-mail and when I saw the name at the top of my inbox I thought, " Wow, I haven't heard from this guy in a long time " then I started thinking, " wait a minute.....this guy's been dead for over a year. " Sure enough, it was followed by a website. I didn't click on it. If I want to send this dead guy a reply I will use my Quija board.

I got a Facebook friend request from a coworker over a year after she passed away.

But that speaks more to the infrequency with which I check my Facebook page...

I get soooooo creeped out when that happens! And it's happened to me three times, now. I guess I need to get much younger friends!
