‘F’ Is For eFFort

"Once you have opened this e-mail, there's no turning back. Below are true
descriptions of zodiac signs, with traits from a book written 35 years ago by an
astrologist predictions. Read your sign, then forward it on, with your zodiac
sign and label on the subject line.

This is real deal, try ignoring it, and the first thing you'll notice is
having a horrible day starting tomorrow morning - and it only gets worse from

- Some Chain Mail 'Author'

Shaking in my boots . . . my day’s been good so far, got free cake . . . IN YOUR FACE!

Do people forward these emails because they are scared, or do they find this sort of thing interesting? Maybe they feel that since they had to receive this trash, then so do you.

Fortunately for myself this chain mail just signs my praises with a highly accurate cold reading:

LEO - The Lion Great talker. Attractive and passionate. Laid back. Knows how to have fun. Is really good at almost anything. Great kisser. Unpredictable.
Outgoing. Down to earth. Addictive. Attractive. Loud. Loves being in long
relationships. Talkative. Not one to mess with. Rare to find. Good when found. 7 years of bad luck if you do not forward.

All is forgiven.

They blabbed on about some other star signs, but I’m a Leo so why would I care?

As for the 7 years of bad luck . . . pfft.

A to the . . .

What if your life was already horrible? Does it still get worse, or do things finally start going your way after ignoring the message or never looking at it?

As for why people forward such garbage... Some people would forward anything. Others are truly THAT superstitious.

Imagine this scenario: To avoid a black cat crossing your path, you throw a bucket full of mirror shards and salt. The cat starts to chase you so you hide under a ladder. You are a rabbit with three feet on the ground, the fourth hangs from a chain around your neck.

I agree, superstitions are silly.

I hate, hate, hate chain letters - I delete every one and 'cuss the stupid sods who sent them to me.

Funnies on the other hand, yeah I'm up for them - have even been known to forward a few myself..

Hey Leo-man, don't get too complacent, my dad was a Leo, and we all know what a rotten shit he turned out to be.. (wink)

Libra, I am justice and good at weighing things... I hate chain letters, there always so nasty 'repost this or you will die, or your mother will have a really bad cup of tea'. But this is the double whammy, a chain letter and horoscope brilliant combo

xymyl: I'm guessing things will get worse. It's a shame, but that's the laws of our existence : (
That's a crazy scenario, "You are a rabbit with three feet on the ground, the fourth hangs from a chain around your neck." - Now that's funny, for quite a few different reasons.

Shrink: Hmmm . . . can't lie, I send on the funnies as well. I guess we're part of the problem and not the cure : (

P. Terry: They didn't say anything bad about Libras, but they were titled as Libras The Lames. But it's junk mail and they said some good junk so take no notice.

from another Leo: funny how a little flattery will so often and easily convince us to forgive.
