Testimonial, What's That?

Booohooo!!! It finally rains, thank god! The past few days had been so hot, I could almost melt. I've been looking forward to this cool change, a good change. Was suppose to be in bed before one but got woken up by my mum's call *frown* haven't been able to fall back to sleep since then, and again, I've been stuffing myself with too much supper, how sinful?

Was browsing through my Friendster and realized that there are a lot of people out there who have a problem learning the meaning of "testimonial".



• noun 1 a formal statement testifying to someone’s character and qualifications. 2 a public tribute to someone and to their achievements.

I believe most of you who have been reading this blog would have no problem comprehending such easy term. Okay, I shouldn't assume as I always believe assumption is the mother of all f*ck-ups. Anyways, if one doesn't know, it doesn't take much effort to check it out from the dictionary.

Back to the point. I saw a lot of people who have a couple of hundreds of the so-called testimonials, which basically are just messages like... "haven't heard from you for a while" or "miss you so much babe" or "thanks for taking me home on Friday, love you". I mean, these belong to the inbox, whether your mobile's or friendster's or whatever mail's that you're using.

Well, I do have to admit that I've a few of these so-called testimonial, and it would be rude for me to reject them but... if you ask me, I'd rather not receive anything than to have something in the wrong place. I've also deleted many of those graphic "testimonials" that you can copy and paste its html, you know what I'm talking about. I'm sorry but I can't stand them hence I had to delete them. Today, I received one from an old college mate who tried to advertise his new phone shop by saying something like...

"How are you? Are you happy with your phone? If you're not, please call *&%&^$&*%*"

Sorry it's now safely in the trash and you can now go f*ck yourself, if you're not happy.
