I did not break the chain. It wasn’t out of fear of the consequences, but more because of a desire to reap the rewards of good luck. Of course I couldn’t just forward it to 20 of my best friends. After redistributing it at work I was still short of the requisite 20 recipients needed to help me claim my good fortune. Here’s what I did: I went through the original e-mail received and scrolled back to find the ringleaders. The people who had received this and then forwarded it on to everyone in their e-mail address book. The list included people in jobs from secretary to company president from large companies all over the globe. I sent the e-mail chain letter back to them with the text of my Chain Letter Panic Disorder in the e-mail as well. Since it’s the weekend I anticipate that when they all get back to work tomorrow I’ll be hearing from them. Oh, and I did send it to a couple of my blogger friends as well.
