    Don't ya just luv em! Got one this mornin. Very patriotic. It was the pledge of allegance. Then they say if I agree pass it on if not delete. Then ya get the ones that say if ya don't pass it on to 20 people ya will not have any good fortune. I say "Kiss me where the sun don't shine!" Who do people think they are tryin to lay some kind of a lame ass guilt trip on ya! I luv this country and me passin on an email and clutterin up someone elses box ain't gonna prove it. That and the cutesy little ones that are sent to ya with 500 other addresses on it. LOL! Sometimes I will reply back to the sender with the following.

    "IF YOU CONTINUE TO SEND ME THESE MAY YOU BE POUNCED ON WITH THE FURY OF 10,000 JUNGLE BEASTS" LOL!

    1) I will NOT get bad luck, lose my friends, or lose my mailing
    lists if I DON'T forward an email!

    2) I will NOT hear any music or see a taco dog, if I do forward
    an e-mail.

    3) Bill Gates is NOT going to send me money, Victoria Secret
    doesn't know anything about a gift certificate they're supposed
    to send me.

    4) Ford will NOT give me a 50% discount even if I forward my e-
    mail to more than 50 people!

    5) I will NEVER receive gift certificates, coupons, or freebies
    from Coca Cola, Cracker Barrel, Old Navy, or anyone else if I
    send an e-mail to 10 people.

    6) I will NEVER see a pop-up window if I forward an e-mail .
    NEVER-- EVER!!

    7) There is NO SUCH THING as an e-mail tracking program, and I
    am not STUPID enough to think that someone will send me $100
    for forwarding an e-mail to 10 or more people!

    8) There is NO kid with cancer through the Make-a-Wish program
    in England or anywhere else collecting anything!

    9) The government does not have an email postage bill in
    Congress called 901B (or whatever they named it this week)
    that, if passed, will enable them to charge us 5 cents for
    every e-mail we send.

    10) There will be NO cool dancing, singing, waving, colorful
    flowers, characters, or program that I will receive immediately
    after I forward an e-mail. NONE, ZIP, ZERO,NADA!!

    11) The American Red Cross will NOT donate 50 cents to certain
    individual dying of some never-heard-of disease for every e-
    mail address I send this to. The American Red Cross RECEIVES
    donations.

    12) And finally, I WILL NOT let others guilt me into sending
    things by telling me I am not their friend or that I don't
    believe in the right religion. If God wants to send me a
    message, I believe the bushes in my yard will burn before He
    picks up a PC to pass it on!

    Now, repeat this to yourself until you have it memorized, and
    send it along to at least 5 of your friends before the next
    full moon or you will surely be constipated for the next three
    months and all of your hair will fall out!
    :lol:

    GEORGE,
    You're just an ole sore head!


    :big_smile:


    Like myself... I hate any forward that comes full of every previous address that it's been sent to. Also besides the "you must pass this on", the one's that's been forwarded so many times that it's full spaces, dashes and other junk. I never read those.. hit delete!

    I don't get them anymore because I told all the people that used to send them that they will get every piece of mail I get if they continue to send them stinking things to me. I don't get anymore.

    BG, did ya stub your toe this morning or bump head on cabinet door.
    Now you know if all email stopped, you would feel un-wanted. LOL.

    It does get Aggravating at times. I get em with a 100 email address and no subject. Somehow must of deleted the subject. LOL.
    I love my delete button.
    I got very few emails I will read cause I know who they are and they dont send a lot of junk.

    Also phone calls and credit card offers in land mail. I dont like phones.
    We just bagged up a sack full of mail offers that we had tried to get em to stop sending.
    That free postage return envelop they come with. We are returning the whole sack full with nothing in it but a big NO!!!!!!!! and take us off your mail list. Maybe if they get tired of paying postage, they will stop. LOL.

    Forgot to mention.... the only email forwards I like are the ones I get from George!:wink: :big_smile:


    Dan, I'm with you on the return postage... I like to mix them up and stuff their envelope from another one.

    I like your idea olefin, I never thought about mixing them up, just sent them empty envelopes that needed postage.
