Here is a little rant that I feel unfortunately doesn’t show the best side of human nature. It’s about those emails that say “mail this out to 500 of your closest friends within 20 minutes and good things will happen. Ignore it and face the consequences of screwing with Karma”.
Now when I get these they usually come across like little annoyances. If you love me send this back. Well I’m flippin’ sorry but I do love my friends and I choose to express it in a much better way than propagating cheesy emails.
Usually I just ignore them unless someone asks my opinion. I always request that I not receive these.
Today took the cake and that is why I’m writing this here. so in case you ever wondered my opinion!!!
This email had the most sinister tone to it. It instructed the recipient to gaze at an image (I did not do this and immediately wanted to delete the email)
The President of Argentina received this picture and called it “junk mail”, 8 days later his son died.. A man received this picture & immediately sent out copies..his surprise was winning the lottery. Alberto Martinez received this picture, gave it to his secretary to make copies but they forgot to distribute: She lost her job & he lost his family. This picture is miraculous & sacred.
You were chosen to receive this Novena.
The moment you receive it, say : “blah blah blah” <– which is a well-known prayer.
Ya know this is just flat out WRONG. Not only is it wrong it is EVIL.
I don’t need to win the lottery to be this happy as I am right this minute. And I don’t want any of my family members to die. So my choice here is to not send this to anyone. Is that freakin OK WITH YOU? You evil mind fu#(ing pukes!!!! To include sacred words in such an overall bad wish message is just reprehensible.
Why oh WHY if you, Dear Reader, have sent these along to other “victims” what were you thinking when you did? Did you stop to think about the message you are sending on?
In my book Inspired Remnants, Curious Dreams this is what it is written on the page “About Kerin” page . . .
“The most important thing you should know about Kerin is that she wishes you, the holder of this book and reader of this page, the most golden of good wishes and generous sprinklings of unexplained happiness at the most unexpected of times.”
Note that it doesn’t say “buy 5 copies of this book within the next week and you will have good luck– ignore this message and you will suffer a most horrible tragedy”.
Let’s go for the higher good people and be each other’s hero by not perpetuating these bad wishes and bad karma. Pretty please?
