Dear IT Support

Eighteen months ago I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from Drinking Mates 4.2, which I had used for years without trouble. However there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend with the sound turned off.

To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is also incompatible with several other applications, such as Lads Night Out 3.1, Football 2.0 and Playboy 6.1. Successive versions of Girlfriend proved no better.

A Shareware Beta-programme, Party Girl 2.1, which I tried had several bugs and left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.

Eventually I tried to run Girlfriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other they caused severe damage to my hardware. Sensing a way out, I then upgraded to Fiancée 1.0 only to discover that this product soon had to be upgraded (at great cost) to Wife 1.0. I reluctantly agreed to this because, whilst Wife 1.0 tends to use up all my available resources, it does come bundled with Freesex Plus and Cleanhouse 2000.

Shortly after this upgrade however, I then discovered that Wife 1.0 can be very unstable and costly to run. For example, any mistakes I made were automatically stored in Wife 1.0's memory and could not be deleted. They then resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them. Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary Explorer and email porn filter, and can without warning, launch Photostrop and Whingezip. These latter products have no help files and I have to try and guess what the problem is myself. Wife 1.0 also spawns unwelcome child processes that drain my resources. It also conflicted with some new games I wanted to try stating that they are an illegal operation. When Wife 1.0 attaches itself to my Dodge Ram or Audi TT programme it often crashes or runs the system dry. Wife 1.0 also has a rather annoying pop-up called the Mother-in-Law, which can't be turned off.

Recently I've attempted to try Mistress 2000, but there could be problems. A friend has alerted me to the fact that if Wife 1.0 detects the presence of Mistress 2000 it tends to delete all my MS Money files before unstalling itself.

Any ideas?

It's been doing the rounds for several years.

Thats good to know guys, but yesterday was the first time I saw this, and I was in stitches. If after reading this, someone laughs only half as hard as I did the other day, then the purpose of posting will be fulfilled.
