Last Poll ... Have You Suffered Consequences

because you didn't re-circulate chain-emails? You broke the rule? Kind of emails and letters containing photos of some religious demi-gods, Gods and Goddesses or temples ... the ones warning you of serious consequence for breaking the chain. Warning like death within 24 hours if you didn't send to another 10 people. That kind ...

Re: Last Poll ... Have You Suffered Consequences

Once I got an email at around 3:30 PM.Nothing happened till 3:30 PM next day.
Right at 3:31 PM,I got a call from my bank that all of my money is withdrawn by some fraudulent person.Hardly had I recovered from this shock that I got another call from owner of the apartment that I was living in.He said we need to vacate the house asap since some of his relatives are coming to stay in that apartment.
About my work front,my manager came running huffing and puffing right then saying that there have been some major issues and we have to fix them asap.I told him I have some personal issues and I need some time off from work.He got really upset at this and said either fix these issues or don't come next day to office!!

I was in shock thinking what is happening to me - whole world was crashing down around me.
It did not occur to me that it was all happening because of that email.
In any case I started working on those urgent issues.But I was finding myself totally helpless and unable to make any progress.At last at around midnight,my mind refused to cooperate and I decided to go home and take rest.I could not sleep at all - I was just thinking about what should I do.
After a while something struck as a lightening - it was all because of that email.I saw time of the call from my bank - it was showing 3:32 PM!
I got ready and went back to office to do as that email had suggested.I sent the email to everybody I knew and came back home.I felt much lighter now and had a nice and sound sleep.

Next day,when I reached office,my manager came smiling towards me and congratulated me for fixing all of the issues.
After a while,my bank called to notify me that all of my money had been recovered.Needless to say,house owner also called to say his relative's plan had been cancelled and I can use that aptment as long as I want.

I took a vow right then that whenever I receive that kind of email ,I will send it to everybody I knew.Here is my sincere advice - don't make the same mistake I made.

You are serious? Of course you are. Nepalibhai ... serious ... what was in the email, photo or something? Did you read entire email when you found it in inbox? Could it be the case of ... when it rains it pours? What do you think would have happened next day if you had deleted the email and couldn't forward it to 10?

Here is the thing ... I delete email the moment I know its a chain mail. Never read another word. I delete the moment I notice an image of some God or recently anointed Gods. Never gave it a 2nd thought.

You got to believe that these e-mails are entirely true, especially those that have pictures of gods in them. I have experienced this many times. Every time I delete such an e-mail there is a terrible itch where the sun don't shine. And believe me when I say such an itch is terrible especially if you delete it at work. You got to squirm and twist and turn... but it needs an outright scratch... and you are embarassed to do that in the middle of the office. It is as if the gods have sent down a thunderbolt to cause that itch... that bad.

Well,If I had to deal with so many shocks because I did not do as it suggested,God knows what would have happened if I had deleted it.
I think I would have died of heart attack (maybe by watching a cricket match of Kenya v Mojambique.)

Somebody had this in his signature,dont remember fully but was something like "they drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience"

As per new rules ... I must have many one line replies to win Crown. You wait.
