Fwd: Fwd: Fwd: Fwd:

Why can't our friends simply throw us an email to say "hello", instead of a cheesey forward?

From fairies who give you good luck, to dancing leprechauns who gives you a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, to the dirty jokes-- as well as the St. Novena prayer that grants all your wishes. If you don’t pass it on to eight or more people, you’ll have bad luck for the rest of your life. If you send it to ten or more people, you’ll get a phone call from a loved one telling you how much they love you too...........at 11:11pm.

Why do we fall for these forwards? The real question is--why do some of our friends “only” communicate with us through forwards?

Here are three rules of mine:

1. Open forwards that are only from friends who actually send you ‘real emails’.

2. Delete forwards from the people who just want to put you on their mailing list so it appears as though they have a lot more friends…

3. If this person keeps forwarding you, without any other types of communication, spam their butts with a bunch of crap, so they know how it feels to get useless no good senseless forwards; like the ones they are sending to you.

Don’t get me wrong, if I have a funny forward or something I think is worthy of passing on, I will do so. I just can’t see passing on every single fricken piece of garbage that comes floating in my inbox.

Like, “Ah, junk mail, let me pass this on to Jen, she’ll love this!”

Come closer the screen....so I can punch you for each forward you send!!! You know who you are!...
Come on! Let’s communicate the old fashioned way and stop the madness. I’m at my wit’s end with these forwards, because they mean nothing to me. I’m actually receiving a ton from one person who refers to dating ‘men’. Errrr……I’m a lesbian you nimrod!!!... Get me off your mailing list NOW!

Is anyone else having this problem???
