    I wrote this on my FB page in July I think it was as I got so fed up....

    Please do not send me emails that state if you don't send this to 10 people you or someone you luv will die....I am sick of them I have already lost enough people I love

    Thing is people don't know everything another person is going through and if they were sent at a sensitive time it could be too overwhelming for them...Some people have peas for brains

    I see them for what they are childish superstitious fear based rubbish and tear them up or delete..

    I have told people who are scared of them to pass it to me and I will happily delete..

    I have crappy times, Ive lost loved ones, Ive had a car crash not once have I ever thought this was in any way influenced by a few silly words on a screen or bit of paper..

    21st century and we are still being plauged by nonsense from the dark ages!

    If I get them I'm afraid I hit delete,chin letters are the biggest load of ****** to surf the net, if the kids get them I delete them for them and tell them nothing will happen as it wasn't them who hit the delete button...every so often the kids get these ones that tell them if they don't forward them some spirit or something will be sat at the end of their bed at midnight tonight...that kind of thing, they did start to pee me off because my 13 yr old is scared of her own shadow at the best of times and has spend a few sleepless nights over some of those so if I could track down the person who started those ones I would have been sat at the end of THEIR beds at midnight to slap them

    I just delete them too. Life is always gonna serve some cr@p at times and forwarding a chain letter ain't gonna change that one bit. It can get annoying though as people just send them without a thought as to who they are sending to, they just don't think but sometimes their timing sucks :(

    This is MY kind of Chain-Letter................




    Hello, my name is Jimmy and I suffer from guilt for not forwarding 50
    billion f88king chain letters sent to me by people who actually
    believe if you send them on, a poor six year old girl in Scotland with
    a breast on her forehead will be able to raise enough money to have
    it removed before her redneck parents sell her to a travelling freak
    show.

    And, do you honestly believe that Bill Gates is going to give you,
    and everyone to whom you send "his" email, $1000?
    How stupid are we?

    Ooooh, looky here! If I scroll down this page and make a wish, I'll
    get laid by a model I just happen to run into the next day!
    What a bunch of bullsh!t.

    Maybe the evil chain letter leprechauns will come into my house and
    sodomize me in my sleep for not continuing a chain letter that was
    started by St Peter in 5AD and brought to this country by midget
    pilgrim stowaways on the Endeavour.
    F**k 'em!!

    If you're going to forward something, at least send me something
    mildly amusing.

    I've seen all the "send this to 10 of your closest friends, and this
    poor, wretched excuse for a human being will somehow receive a
    nickel from some omniscient being" forwards about 90 times.

    I don't f88king care.
