To think that people who send this drivel by message/email etc should be taken outside and pelted with rotten fruit?

Thought of you and I do believe in Karma. Hope u get something good out of it xx

This is for u x Read till the end! I sent an angel to watch over you last night, but it came back and asked "why?" The angel said, "angels don't watch over angels!" twenty angels are in your world. Ten are sleeping, nine of them are playing and one is reading this message. The universe has seen you struggling with some things and says it over. a blessing is coming your way. If you believe in Karma send this message to 14 friends including me, if I don't get it back I guess I'm not one of them. As soon as you get 5 replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you... Not joking. Pass this message on. Please don't ignore it. you are being tested and Karma is going to fix two big things tonight in your favor. If you believe in Karma drop everything and pass it on TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. DON'T BREAK THIS. SEND THIS TO 14 FRIENDS IN 10 MINUTES IT'S NOT THAT HARD. WHOEVER SENT THIS TO YOU MUST CARE ABOUT YOU

Just hold your finger on it n it should say forward


STOP IT NOW angry

Quite apart from anything else - this line

As soon as you get 5 replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you...
could mean anything! It could mean someone you love will drop down dead in front of you!

Bloody nonsense!

The evolution of chain letters.

I bloody hate it. YANBU.

Atinybittiredandsad Wed 03-Aug-16 09:34:57

Totally agree it's shite and I always ignore crap like this. FB is full of it too.

ABloodyDifficultWoman Wed 03-Aug-16 09:35:42

I hate it too - and it's my bloody SIL sending this shit and a million variations of it. She's an educated professional woman ffs. I despair.

SlinkyVagabond Wed 03-Aug-16 09:37:17

For the overuse of u as a personal pronoun alone, yanbu.

SmallBee Wed 03-Aug-16 09:39:13

I got the below yesterday. Its not the worst example but still, why?

'
😎 Hello lovely lady, ...had to do it. I Nominate you for the Most loving and prettiest Mum Award. You must send to 15 mums and make their day. I'm also waiting!🕛 Sometimes u just need to hear it ... You're a beautiful mum, doing a great job and you're so loved! Just hold your finger on it and it should say forward.'

ABloodyDifficultWoman Wed 03-Aug-16 09:40:09

I despise that as well Slinky. grin

Also, the last line - WHOEVER SENT THIS TO YOU MUST CARE ABOUT YOU - makes my blood pressure start to pound. It's so fucking stupid - like the sender doesn't even know who sent it? Doesn't that just mark them out as a prize-winning cuntbiscuit?

ABloodyDifficultWoman Wed 03-Aug-16 09:41:08

Oh lordycakes Small - she sent me that two days ago!

<<wonders quietly whether we have a friend in common>> grin

Iamthegreatest1 Wed 03-Aug-16 09:41:27

I detest these emails/letters whatever they are with a passion and said so on another forum (year group forum) yesterday, it didn't go down well. If you think OPs example is bad I can raise you Worse! It's awful. It's worse that in my case they are being sent by women in their 40s. I can't quite decided wether the posters actually believe in the, or wether they just think they are funny hmm either, I agree they should pelted with rotten fruit.

The evolution of chain letters.

Indeed, but at least forwarding chain letters required some effort in copying - by hand in the really olden times - and the outlay on stationery and ten 2nd class stamps. I also preferred the explicit threats of misfortune and disease if you didn't comply.

Ellybellyboo Wed 03-Aug-16 09:48:12

YANBU!

I got the prettiest mum one a few days ago.

I'm currently unfriending half by FB friends list for sending me some crappy thing about fabulous dog owners "rising to the challenge of posting a picture of your own dog"

Load of bollocks

ABloodyDifficultWoman Wed 03-Aug-16 09:49:38

I agree casual - you could have a good laugh at the unlikelihood of developing leprosy on all of your important appendages and dying a hideous death in a vat of boiling blood.
These days it's all about angels and fucking karma. Bugger that!

KatharinaRosalie Wed 03-Aug-16 09:52:22

'please click like if you hate cancer/child abuse/poverty'

Please fuck off. Make a donation to charity or volunteer if you actually care.

trevortrevorslatterfry Wed 03-Aug-16 09:53:34

elly HA "rising to the challenge of posting a photo of your dog" grin grin

I've seen that one - I, in common with all the dog owners I know, post about 4000 pictures a month of my dog. My FB friends would probably prefer me to rise to the challenge of not posting any.

I'm not doing the pressups either out of laziness principle.

AlwaysWashing Wed 03-Aug-16 09:56:21

You are most definitely NBU - this shit drives me nuts! So what? If I don't "like" I hate cancer/child abuse/poverty it means I do like it? It makes me inwardly rant and outwardly ignore. RAAAAAA

ABloodyDifficultWoman Wed 03-Aug-16 09:57:34

I've got one on my FB who has very publicly committed to posting 'her favourite and most inspiring' verses from the Bible. Every single day. For the whole of August. confused Just why!

Ellybellyboo Wed 03-Aug-16 09:57:57

Yeah, there's several hundred pics of my dog on FB anyway. Most people would be grateful not to see any more grin

Also the ones that start "97% of my friends won't repost this......cancer/autism/something racist"

Atinybittiredandsad Wed 03-Aug-16 10:00:52

Oh yes the press ups!!!! Just give money to the charity it's so self promoting.

Love the dog challenge.

Prettiest mummy makes me want to vomit.

Atinybittiredandsad Wed 03-Aug-16 10:03:32

Oh yes put this as your status for a day some bollocks about altzimers or bowel cancer etc. Why why would I do that? Means utterly nothing

FreshwaterSelkie Wed 03-Aug-16 10:04:28

If you believe in Karma drop everything

Okey-doke, I'll start by dropping you grin

ABloodyDifficultWoman Wed 03-Aug-16 10:05:32

This a couple of days ago from someone in full good health although badly lacking in brain cells

^Coming from personal experience. To those who don't know the whole story. Until you have walked in our shoes and have felt the pain we feel, keep your cruel comments and opinions to yourself. Ignorant people can be so cruel!! I'm posting to stop people from mocking and laughing at people for things beyond their control... Not one of my Facebook friends will copy and paste (but I am counting on a true family member or friend to do it). If you would be there for me no matter what then copy and paste this. I'm doing this to prove a friend wrong that someone is always listening. I care. Hard to explain to someone who has no clue. It's a daily struggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside. Please put this as your status for at least 1 hour if you or someone you know has an invisible illness (IBS, Crohn's, PTSD, Addiction, Alzheimer, Anxiety, Arthritis, Cancer, Heart Disease, Bipolar, Depression, Diabetes, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, MS, AS, ME, , Epilepsy, hereditary angioedema , Migraines, Hashimotos, AUTISM, Borderline personality disorder, M.D., D.D.D., CFS, Histiocytosis, O.D.D, A.D.H.D, RSD, RA (rheumatoid arthritis ) PBC, RLS ,COPD, MCAS, EDS etc.)
Never judge.^
For those who don't know how to copy and paste on FB...hold your finger on this post until you see copy, hit copy then go to status, hit status a new page comes up, hit into the white part and paste will show up and you're done.

It's such piffle isn't it? Look at all those afflictions listed! What if you didn't make the list? {grin]

Ellybellyboo Wed 03-Aug-16 10:07:34

I remember having a proper barney a few years ago with a friend because I didn't post the colour of my bra as my Facebook status to raise awareness of breast cancer.

Utterly pointless
