Now Jordan Johnsen was a smart kid and he knew what could happen if he didn't pass it on. He simply pulled a few friends from his buddy list and sent it along.

He was goin' wild! the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they have been going out ever since.

What annoys me:

1) "This letter has been going since 1863"?? Kinda clever since the internet has only been round a few years
2) Someone is sick enoguh to say their parents will die if they dont send this message!! Its sick
3) I feel happy for the third child who got some limp bizkit and kid-rock tickets in 1863!! Pre-ordering really has taken a step into madness
4) Lets be honest, a letter can not make your "Crush" like you!!

IT IS PATHETIC! PATHETIC AND ANNOYING! I WISH THESE PEOPLE WHO SEND OR CREATE WOULD JUST STOP BEFORE IT GETS OUT OF HAND!! RAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Wheres my battle axe?

Man! I've never something like that before! I totally agree with the sick part. Who can send mails like this, threatening to kill someone's parents or involve them in serious "accidents". Man, you are right, that is total and utter BS! Do you have the address it was sent from? Maybe you can send them a "nice" reply.

Having a dead mother and unemployed dad is bad, getting dates, money, games etc. is good... how many pages do they need for explaining that?

I hate all junk mail in my inbox, but chain letters are even worse, because they are sent by people who are supposed to be your friends, yet they waste your time with these stupid chain letters. It really frustrates me as well.
I neve get them anymore and here is my secret. Once I get an initial chain letter from somone. I send them a reply politely asking them not to waste my time with anymore stupid chain letters, because I don't find them entertaining, and I don't read them so even sending me one is wasting both our time. Then if they are my friend, they simply stop sending them to, and if they continue, then they are not my friend and I block them. easy as that I still get the occasional one on accident, but they are few and far between.
