I can’t say this in an email to the person who sent me the offending forward, so instead I’ll say it here on the intertrons.
I hate getting forwards from people. I hate the ones that have a dire warning of some negative crap that will happen to me if I don’t send them, and I hate the ones that tell me that I will receive blessings and ponies if I do send them. I really hate the religious chain forwards as well; somehow I sincerely doubt that hitting the “forward” button on my email will really improve my walk with God.
But I have a special kind of hatred for the chain forward that combines all three of those categories. When you combine the “Religious” forward with the “dire warnings” forward, you get the “Dire Religious Warning”. Throw in some blessings, and you get the Dire Blessings of Warning Religion”, which if you forward it to me automatically makes me think you’re a retard. The following text is from a forward that some idiot at work sent me this morning.
The President of Argentina received this letter and called it “junk mail”, 8 days later his son died A man received this letter and immediately sent out copies…his surprise was winning the lottery.
Alberto Martinez received this letter, gave it to his secretary to make copies but they forgot to distribute: she lost her job and he lost his family.
This letter is miraculous and sacred, don’t forget to forward this within 13 days to at least 20 people. Do Not Forget to forward and you will receive ! a huge surprise!!
This particular piece of junk was attached to a picture of the Virgin Mary; which makes it really retarded. Basically, this piece of email is telling you that if you don’t hit the forward button and send this crap to a bunch of people, the God Himself will cause bad things to happen to you. How idiotic is that?
The moral of this story is that if you happen to be one of the people in possession of my email address; and you send me one of these forwards I will mock you incessantly. Not only that, but it will lower my opinion of your relative IQ by quite a bit.
