Depending on what is in it, I have taken out the "chain" part and sent it on to someone who might be interested in what it says.

I did a recipe chain once and a tea towel exchange once- for family- and never got any recipes or towels. Send a stranger money? Ha!

I probably did one as a teenager when I didn't like them but couldn't think up an excuse to get out of it. lol

But you know the equivalent, don't you?
Mary Kay, Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Avon....
whether we like those products or not...they are almost impossible to get out of.
I even wrote a blog about a Mary Kay lady that came this summer to 'drop something off' for my daughter and forced us into an exhibit. It was AWFUL. And if you say no, you feel awful for 'breaking their chain' of potential customers.

And we all lived happily ever after...


Life.
It's Worth Living.
It's Worth Giving.
Choose Life.

We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.
If only moral people are willing to do that, mass abortion will end.

I haven't seen one in years and I have five plus email accounts. I have the spam filters pretty well trained though, so I don't see much that I don't want to see. I'm old enough to remember when the Post Office delivered them.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

Sandy, I'm 100% with you on this one. In addition, I have viewed them as attempted blackmail: do what the writer says or else! That absolutely infuriates me even when I know the writer may have meant well.

I've never passed along a chain letter. The same goes for chain emails & private messages. I've even received a couple here on Spark People. They all get treated the same. That's what my "delete" button is for.

Have you ever received a chain letter? If so what did you do with it? And what happened?
