A Geek’s Nightmare

Seriously, this morning’s dream was weird. Now thinking if I’ve been spending way too much time at the computer or in my work. Because I had a dream of falling victim to some stupid email scam, accidentally! WTF?!

Stress is distracting

In my dream, I was in the flow of doing my work and it was something I had to rush. Previously, the email marketing company I used did an exercise of requesting members to change their passwords. And, password change verifiers will be sent via email.

Because I was expecting to receive that email, I saw another email which was formatted pretty similar. Not in design but layout. It was a 1-column with text and a text link at the bottom. Now, I think here’s where I made my boo-boo. I didn’t read the text link and assumed it was for me to click and verify my password change.

Nightmare starts

I was suddenly involved in some dispute. My parents contacted me saying there was this person who said I owed them a huge sum of money. Reason being I had subscribed or purchased something from them. Obviously being spaced out, I denied it was true.

Until they asked me if I clicked the link an email. Uh oh!

Thankfully it ended

By the end of my subconsciousness, my parents said it was resolved. Though I vaguely recall in my dream, I told a friend I could sue the other party for having misled and not confirming my purchase first.

Nonetheless, it was quite scary being caught up in such a weird predicament. And do hope it doesn’t come about as a deja vu, ever.

Plus, to make sure I read all my emails before clicking ANY links!

A Day of Irony

Call me crazy. Ever thought you were either psychic or for some odd reason able to foresee what’s about to happen? It’s like your train of thought somehow connects with the wavelength of the universe, and what you were thinking is brought up by someone else.

This was my day today. It was the day irony hit me. Twice!

Coincidence #1: Will hardcore online gaming substitute sex?

In my own spaced out world, I think about stuff like, do Malaysian women outnumber Malaysian men? And today, this random thought of gaming junkies substituting their passion of World of Warcraft for sex came to me.

This was ironic because while I was speaking to my business partner, he passed me the link to read that comic. *psycho music plays*

Coincidence #2: New client who just paid Simpleet

I went to a client’s office today to collect a cheque. It’s an office which I’ve not been before and it was the first time for me to hear it’s name. Unknowingly enough, an agency contacts us and requests for a proposal to help their client build a website. And guess who the client was?

Exactly! It was the same one which I just visited to collect a cheque. The payment collected was for a smaller job and not their website. But seriously, what are the odds!

Thank goodness the day of irony ended there. If it finished somehow with deja vu, I’d be probably in my own universe by now.
