I have a vent about what I call e-mail bullies. These are those seemingly well meaning people who e-mail you nice things--prayers, poems and pics--that are supposed to lift you up and make you feel needed and grateful.
All well and good, until you get to the end of the post. It usually has something like, "You must return this to 10 friends and the person who sent it to you to see the good results." "Don't tell me you don't have time to reply to this." And the worst, "Show you're a true Christian and send this e-mail to 10 people within 10 days."
See, that negates any warm-and-fuzzy good wishes that were delivered in the rest of the e-mail. It is the equivalent of saying, "I'm your very good friend--only if you follow these 6 easy steps."
Give me a break!
I have also found that these e-mails usually come from people who have NEVER sent me a personal e-mail in their lives. I just get these "you-are-my-friend-now-prove-it" e-mails.
