Grrrrr

I hate when I get mail like this:

Please read this, it may be long but help the girl. I just got this neomail and it's sad. Can u please forward it so this girl's mom gets better?? (starts now)My name is Jasmine. I'm 11 years old. My mommy worked on the 20th floor in the World Trade Tower.On Sept. 11 2001 my daddy drove my mom to work. She was running late so she left her purse in the car.My daddy seen it so he parked the car and went to give her the purse.That day after school my daddy didnt come to pick me up.Instead a police man came and took me to foster care.Finally I found out why my daddy never came..I really loved him....They never found his body..My mom is in the the Hospital since then..She is losing lots of blood..She needs to go through surgery..But since my daddy is gone and no one is working..We have no money..And her surgery cost lots of money..So the Red Cross said that..for every time this email is fwd we Will get 10 cent for my mom's surgery.So please have a heart and fwd this to everyone you know.I really miss my daddy and now I dont want to lose my mommy too.

I know fine well that the Red Cross is not going to pay for the surgery, and I seriously doubt that the 11 year old exists, but that isn't what bothers me. Useless chain mails in general bother me, people playing on the good natures of other bothers me. Obviously one of my friends was kind hearted enough to think that forwarding this email to me would help the little girl. But the sad fact is it won't. The same goes for those who forward emails where if you send it to so many friends something good will happen and if you don't something horrible will.
Why do people write this crap? Why do people play on each other like that anyway?

I'm done ranting. Carry on.
