bad forwards

I won't lie and say that I never forward anything, but I do feel that I am selective. If I receive a dumb forward, I am not going to send it on. And when I do, I don't just send it to all of my contacts, I usually have a specific person in mind (I am not judging those who do any of this...this is just my take). There are some good forwards, I will admit that.

Tonight when I opened a forwarded email, I knew why I don't like them.

The subject was "This made me think of you."

Here goes.

"I like you because of who you are to me...A true friend. " (oh boy)
(this picture was above that text)

"And if I don't get this back I'll take the hint." (seriously?)

"Something good will happen to you tomorrow at 1-4 pm tomorrow." (uh huh, yeah I bet)

At this point I am thinking GAG ME!!! Do you not agree with me? This is why I hate forwards! Why are they so cheesy? If you don't forward this on, then you are a bad person! I am in fact a terrible person because most of the time, I don't send them on. Sorry forwards.

P.S. This line is also classic of the "lame forwards"
"Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence, and don't skip ahead."

and one more great line from this particular foward

"I've learned...that life is like a roll of toilet paper....the closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes." (Yes, thank you for those pearls of wisdom!!)

Too funny. I agree and don't send many on despite the guilt trips and pressure.
