sending ONE would be punishable by brutal work camps or death.
seriously, do people have NOTHING ELSE going on in their life and think... "hey i should put together some pictures and a nice/scary/funny/sad/religious story/email/powerpoint presentation and send it to everyone i know and then add at the end that if they don't send it to everyone they know they will die of aids or cancer or both"?
genius! oh wait, what could possibly be the gain of this? NOTHING that's what. it is stupid and for the life of me i can't imagine why these were started, sent and still exist. when you get a forward from a friend and it clearly gives you the choice of "send it back to me to show you care" or "if you ignore it i will know you checked your email and hate me" ... what the crap??? i guess i hate you, i can't hit reply.
does a true friend send you a chain letter? (ponder that while i blow your mind again)
ok so "paper" chain letters are illegal to send (it said on google), "electronic" chain letters are an enormous waste of space and time, so where do we go from here?
PHONE TEXT CHAIN LETTERS! are you freakin kidding me? OH NO, they are real and do you know how many i have received? Way too many. just because you are on someones phone list does not mean you want crude pictures of santa clause, to be likened to some friendship poem crap, or sent "are you smarter than a fifth grader" questions at 6:30 in the morning on a Saturday. (i'm sorry if you are one of these people, i just can't hide behind the shame anymore)
i know there are greater causes in 2008 like ending breast cancer, peace in the middle east, britney getting her life back together, world hunger to name a few. i would like to make a stand here and now:
"i vow to never ever read and forward/reply to a chain letter ever again and if i do i shall be smitten to my death by an ironic yet literal 2 billion pound chain."
please make the vow with me by commenting your support of this plague we face daily. together we can beat stupid people at their own game!
