This Just Doesn't Work for Me....

What follows is a typical conclusion to various forwarded emails that have appeared in my in-box. It often concludes a genuinely encouraging message meant to uplift and inspire - but then I get this guilt-trip "threat" telling me that IF I DON'T FOLLOW DIRECTIONS JUST AS THEY ARE GIVEN I will have bad luck, demonstrate my general apathy for the world, or prove I don't have any friends. Just so you know, I am so past guilt trips and threats - so, I gotta say, this just doesn't work for me........

THEY SAY IT TAKES A
MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL
PERSON, AN HOUR TO
APPRECIATE
THEM, A DAY
TO LOVE THEM, BUT THEN
AN ENTIRE LIFE
TO FORGET THEM.

SEND THIS TO
THE PEOPLE YOU'LL NEVER
FORGET.
I JUST DID.

IF YOU DON'T
SEND IT TO ANYONE,
IT MEANS YOU'RE IN A
HURRY AND THAT YOU'VE
FORGOTTEN YOUR FRIENDS.

Oh don't get me started...I HATE those things. Usually if I decide they are worth passing on I make sure to erase all stupid phrases like that...So annoying.

I do the same as Jodi to "stop the insanity!"
