Fax machines are stressful enough. Face up or face down? Dial "9" or not? And where's the dang confirmation message?
But imagine you were pining away for 5pm and this document came through:
Small Business Commitment Week? Yikes! It's the attack of the non-descript promotion - also known as "fax spam."
In most offices, it's crumpled and tossed into the round file. But in Massachusetts it's cause for alarm.
After a Bank of America employee viewed the fax (left) and feared for his life, he called the authorities and reported the cryptic advertisement as a bomb threat! Long story short, 15 surrounding businesses, including a day-care were evacuated for three hours.
What's wrong with this state? First, downtown Boston virtually shut down over a Cartoon Network promotion... next their former Governor, Mitt Romney, back-handed his fellow New Englanders during the Republican Debates. And now, some dweeb pushing papers at B of A has stopped the presses due to a fax message.
If the Red Sox weren't in first place, these folks would have nothing to live for!
