Round Robins

Don't you just hate 'em?

Or maybe you send them - please tell us why you do, and why you think that people that you haven't seen for 30 years are remotely interested in what subjects your Tommy has been taking at school, or where you went on holiday last year.

Surely its a more primitive form of Facebook, and that seems pretty popular.

You're feeding them too much!

Never heard of them?

I used to know a fat bird,but not a round robin.

Straight in the bin.

If you can't be bothered to write to me, don't bother remembering me.

I get them from a mate who has never written anything original since I sent him a first mail.

Mailwasher now handles them as spam.

thought it was a type of bet.

Exactly my sentiments!

And corny/rude/ semi porn jokes .
Especially those that come complete with an Address Book entry for every previous recipient/sender.- and people wonder why they get spam?
It is an open invitation.

I get a couple of these every Christmas from friends that have moved abroad to live. I see them as a lazy sort of way to keep in touch but they are at least better than just a short scribbled signature on a Christmas card.

It enables them to at least make an effort at keeping in touch with their old friends in the UK and the friends are probably interested to know how expats live in exotic places.
