Chain letter emails... (rant)

I am so sick of these lame ass chain emails. I swear I get at least two a week or more.

Here is one I got today from an pretty much disliked acquaintance


This is truly lovely, have a super day, love you all

(Insert sappy teddy bears hugging picture here)

Of all the friends I've ever met,
You're the one I won't forget.
And if I die
Before you do
I'll go to heaven
And wait for you
I'll give the angels
Back their wings
And risk the loss
Of everything
Just to prove
My friendship is true
I'm thankful to have
Family and Friends like you!

SEND THIS TO ALL YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS
AND BACK TO THE PERSON WHO SENT IT TO YOU...
IF YOU GET IT BACK...
THAT PERSON IS YOUR TRUE FRIEND!!

SEND IT TO THIS MANY AND GET:

0) NEVER GET KISSED AGAI N

1) GET A PECK ON THE FOREHEAD

2) GET A PECK ON THE CHEEK

3) GET A PECK ON THE LIPS

4) GET A KISS

5) GET A HUG

6) GET A REALLY BIG HUG

7) GET A KISS AND A BIG HUG

8) GET KISSED& HUGGED

10) GET ALL THE ABOVE AND WHATEVER YOU WANT!!

OK YOU HAVE 1 MINUTE TO SEND THIS!!
I hate these they make me want to yack as I read them. I could stand one now and then a few years ago but now I have seen chain letters about friendship, love, money, happiness, even one to stop chain letters. They were all stupid. I donít want to be mean but I swear I am going to start putting the people who send me these letters in my spam guard.

Just do a reply to all saying "Please don't send me these fucking things!"

That seems to work for me

My friends are also doing this by text message. I get like 10 of the same one because all the idiots send it everybody on their contacts list. Makes me want to reconsider having these morons as friends.

This is why I never give out my main email address to family, particularly my aunts and female cousins.

I get a lot of them too. I delete them and never give them a second thought. Seems like a waste of energy to get all worked up about it.

Yeah, I could just imagine my poor mothers reaction....

She sends me at least one a week and about five e-cards. I wish I never would have helped her learn how to email...

I don't think she's "all worked up" about it. I think Bella's just having some fun posting about something that a lot of us have to deal with.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the people most likely to spread these messages are women.
