A while back, I had a post regarding a signature, on e-mails, used by a lady from the corporate headquarters. After her signature, she signs off with, 'Have a blessed day.' I remarked that perhaps I did not want to have a blessed day maybe I wanted to have a day filled with debauchery and I did not particularly appreciate her remark.
In a game of Christian oneupmanship, a fellow employee at the site where I work now signs off after her signature, in e-mails, ' Make everyone you meet feel as if they have been kissed by an angel.' Again I must take issue with this statement. Sometimes when I first meet people, I do not want to feel as if I have kissed an angel. Sometimes I want to feel as if Satan's own daughter has smacked me on the ass and told me to shut up and take it like a man.
I think in order to get in on the game of Christian Oneupmanship, I will add a new signature phrase at the bottom of my e-mails at work. ' In case of Rapture, don't bother sending a reply. Just forward this e-mail along to the rest of your heathen buddies.'
