To be FUMING every time a so called friend sends me one of those dodgy emails?

Stupid chain email type things "send this to 10 friends in 5 minutes or you will die later".
I am a superstitious person and it really bothers me. Just because they write at the bottom "sorry but i cant chance it" doesn't make it better. I've asked them not to and i absolutely refuse to send them on to anyone else because i think they're horrible.

I was having a pretty unpleasant time, lots of things going wrong etc, stuff that my friends and family all knew about.
I had a similar email to those described from my Auntie (who should really have known better), and it threatened allsorts if I didn't send it on to up to 15 people. I deleted it. I also put a message up on MSN messenger saying "if you don't hear from me again, you'll know I didn't forward that pathetic chain email..." or something to that effect.
I haven't had another one since!

A friend of mine does this to me - not the 'you will die' ones, but these godawful 'send this to ten of your best friends and brighten their day' kind of deelys.
Apart from making me want to vomit copiously, it is a real irritant... I think she thinks they're sweet...
We really do need a sickbucket emoticon on this board!

these are the best ones, they contain a lovely message, some poem or other, really thought provoking and then at the end it says something along the lines of:
"send this to someone you care about and show them you're thinking of them".
i dont mind those, they're quite sweet.
but then you scroll down and find something like....
"ps, send this to 50 thousand people in the next 0.5 seconds or your gentals will drop off at midnight"
