2014 A-Z Blogging Challenge……….3rd of 26 Pet Peeves


My Pet Peeve for the Letter C

C is for Chain Letters
 
 
If I had $5.00 for every chain letter email I have received over the last few years I’d be able to afford the cost of dinner at a very nice restaurant. Thanks to my email spam I very rarely do get them now but even the spam eater can’t take care of all of them and a few do get through. I had no idea that I was a close friend of the Prince of(insert name of a city) India and that he had left me a huge sum of money when he passed and I was equally surprised that another Prince of a foreign Country needed my help in handling his monetary affairs. All I had to do was give his lawyer my banking information and he would deposit a very large sum of money into my account. Yes, I will just jump on that and send this stranger my banking information…NOT! Although these really are just plain irritating they are pretty much harmless and good for a laugh (unless you are sitting on your brain and send out your bank information to complete strangers).
 Subject: you should try this/
You can earn $46,000 or more in next the 90 days sending e-mail.
seem impossible? Read on for details (no, there is no "catch")...
(You can earn $50,000 or more in the next 90 days sending e-mail.
Seem impossible? Is there a catch?  NO, there is no catch; just
send your e-mails and be on your way to financial freedom.
Basically, I send out as many of these e-mails as I can, then
people send me cash in the mail for information that I just e-mail
back to them. Everyday, I make a three minute drive to my P.O. Box
knowing that there are at least a few hundred dollars waiting for
me.  And the best part, IT IS COMPLETELY LEGAL.)
 
 
 
AN IRISH FRIENDSHIP WISH
Good Luck!! I hope it works...
May there always be work for your hands to do;
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
OK, this is what you have to do....
Send this to all of your friends! But - you HAVE to send this within 1 hour from when you open it!
Now.................Make A wish!!!!!!
I hope you made your wish! Now then, if you send to:
1 person --- your wish will be granted in 1 year
3 people --- 6 months
5 people --- 3 months
6 people --- 1 month
7 people --- 2 weeks
8 people --- 1 week
9 people --- 5 days
10 people --- 3 days
12 people --- 2 days
15 people --- 1 day
20 people --- 3 hours
If you delete this after you read it... you will have 1 year of bad luck!

Chain letters/emails are so irritating. I can't believe people would waste their time writing them. And I can't believe that people would actually send them on.

Something bad will happen to you if you don't send this to a million people in the next 2 seconds!

Love the theme you chose for the challenge! Looking forward to following along.

I also really hate chain letters. So annoying! I think I need a mug like that.

Facebook is getting just as bad. I cringe to go on. I'm thinking of cancelling my account altogether. I can't abide the drivel that people continually want me to repost or reap the consequences.

I hate them as well and I am also dead as I delete them all the time.

And yet you lived another day to tell the tale thus proving the chain letter toothless. Love the idea of doing pet peeves. LOL
