    Does anyone else have a special someone in their lives who believes you MUST pass on irritating chain letter e-mails (you know the ones that say "if you want good luck pass this on to 12 friends)....what is the proper way to let them know to cut it out, they are very annoying...I am actucally recieving them as texts now too....AHHHHHH :thumbdown:

    I just started telling ppl that I trust in the good Lord to take care of me and to please stop sending the chain letters. It worked and no one was upset at me for being honest.

    I delete them and don't do it. Guess some of my friends believe in them. I don't. I make my own good luck if I can. I agree. I feel bad when they say to returnt hem to the ones who sent them too. Hopeing they will take a hint. LOL.

    I just ignore them -- oh and the texts that really irritates me- as depending on who sends it can cost me money :hunf:

    I think the religious one irritate me most, it just shows me where their faith is!

    Have you received any via snail mail with charm squares? I didn't do those either. I just can't do that.

    yes, I have one that does that. I sometimes forward, but I remove the part that says to send on to others. I just like to share some of the stories. I've asked her not to, but it doesn't stop her.

    The effortlessness and speed of email has made these little annoyances much more prevalent, it seems.
    The again, we have the "delete" button which also works just as quickly with hardly any effort. :D
    One can blame a lot of "missed" stuff on "....must be out there in cyber space somewhere...." :oops:

    I just texted my friend back and said something along the line of thanks for thinking of me, but I don't 'do' these. Now she only sends extra special ones.
