|01:52 pm - Chain letter|
I just got a chain letter.
And I know what you're all thinking. BFD. I get bunches of them in spam daily. And you do. And so do I, in our emails. But this chain letter came in the real mail. I didn't think people did those anymore.
My aunt Donna sent me a scratch ticket on a list with two names. You make send 1 scratch ticket to the number 1 name on the list of two. Then you send 6 more scratch tickets, 1 each, to 6 people of your choosing. You remove the name from the number 1 position (the person you sent a ticket to in the first part) and move the other name (the person who sent it to you) up, and add your name.
I have no idea what to do with this. I must consult with hoppie. I may just send the ticket bcak to Aunt Donna. Or scratch it and split the winnings with her if it's a winner.
Current Mood: confused
Wow, that's a tough one.
I'd be tempted to just stop the chain. Not to say anything to Aunt Donna, not to send anything on, just stop it and not participate. Then again, my relatives get really ugly when it comes to confrontation -and- they wouldn't understand why I had a problem with them sending it on no matter how many times I tried to explain. Plus it still leaves the whole what to do with the lottery tickets thing. Maybe scratch them and donate any winnings to charity?
Stop the madness! Of course I'd scratch the ticket, pocket my million and then not send a ticket to anyone else.
Aunt Donna is expecting to receive a lot of tickets in the mail, but she should just learn her lesson that pyramid schemes are illegal to send through the mail and she just lost her $7 investment.
Don't feel guilty about not continuing the chain. If you win a million on this scratch ticket then send her back somewhere between $1, $7 and $500,000.
