Sociopath friends = end to a chain of forwards

There are some admittedly bad things about having sociopaths as friends, but the good thing about them is that they will never send you an email forward like this:
'Gold Wrapping Paper'

I received this from a friend who had a choice to make. I had a choice to make too.

I've chosen. Now it's your turn to choose.

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her five year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and then said,
'This is for you, Mummy.'

The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner

'Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?'

She had tears in her eyes and said, 'Oh, Mummy, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until it was full.'

The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger.

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life.

Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given a Golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and GOD. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

You now have two choices:
1. Pass this on to your friends, or
2. Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart.

As you can see, I took choice No.1.
Friends are like angels who lift us to our feet, when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.
Luckily sociopaths can't be guilted into forwarding emails like these. We don't care if it makes us seem inhuman. We'd rather be inhuman than morons.


  1. Do you realize by making this post you've essentially passed it on?

  2. He may have passed it on, but by explaining how moronic it is, do you really think anyone is going to pass it on next?

  3. I don't forward chain e-mails because I find them insipid and pointless. They're literally the least that a person can do to address any given situation/problem, and are therefore a waste of my time. I'd rather actually help someone, than send a friend a chain e-mail saying that I like helping people.

    ... but, I rather doubt I'm a sociopath. I think it's a trait of people who would rather not waste their time, as much as anything else.

  4. Okay, that story was so stupid and heavy handed that I laughed out loud. And I feel. I think people who like to cry and wallow in retardedness send stuff like that. That's not normal.

  5. Unfortunately it is normal. That's the problem.

  6. I don't send those glurgey emails on either, but I'm pretty sure I'm not a sociopath. I mean, I like a few people and I absolutely love animals.

    But I can't stand stupid shit.

  7. You are not a sociopath. Maybe you googled sociopathy and thought it was cool...or maybe you convinced yourself that you are a sociopath because your life is so miserable and pathetic that you just wanted to escape those feelings. Believing you are a sociopath and constantly telling yourself that you are fearless and unfeeling is a process by which you can become numb. Labelling this process socipathy makes it more believable for you and thus more likely to work. It also makes you delusional. You are not a sociopath...BUT you ARE a loser who has convinced themselves of as much. I would love to meet you so I could make you cry like a little girl for being sooooo....pathetic.

  8. That would have been an awesome story if the mother killed herself out of guilt. Stupid fucking bitch.

  9. I'm not a sociopath but empathic and yet I too find this stories annoying. I don't pass on chain emails because why would I want to pass on the same aggrivation I have with them. I give them the same attention I give junk mail...delete, delete, delete.

    I'm trying to decide if sociopaths actually serve a purpose. I think that we've idealized certain charateristics that would be "red flags" if they were hell bent but otherwise could be called successful. Maybe their purpose is to merely balance the world..the hell to the heaven, while the meek/weak live in between the two being pulled by the powers of various neurosis.

  10. Oh gods, you mean one of those horrifyingly inane "chain letters" that people love to pass on?

    Sure, I understand that people often pass on "heartwarming stories" to others for inspirational or other purposes like "fundraising" but chain letters like these are kinda annoying because they rely more on guilt and fear than on understanding. And oh, as well as a healthy dose of irrational logic that sending a chain letter will make things in the world better.

  11. I don't mind chain mail, when it's not formatted badly or is generally messy, but I do mind these "threats" at the end of said chain mail. Occasionally I will pass on a particularly sweet story or cool pictures, but I make it nice, neat, black, 12-point font and get rid of everything unnecessary, including those ridiculous threats. I feel like it just spoils any enjoyment that may be had from them.

    Ngẫm nghĩ, Đoạn Vân hỏi: "Các ngươi có hỏi bọn chúng sự tình liên quan
    đến Đông phương Thần giới không?"

    Phì Tử giơ bàn tay hơi mập mạp lên nói: "Lão Đại, ta hỏi rồi!"

    " Ta cũng hỏi qua một chút, dù sao ta cũng muốn biết Thần rốt cục hình
    dáng ra sao!" Tiểu Phi Hiệp cũng nói theo.

    " Lão Đại, hai huynh đệ chúng ta cũng hỏi rồi!" Đạt Nhĩ Ba kéo theo Đạt
    Nhĩ Khắc vội vã trả lời.

    Đoạn Vân cười cười, xem ra mình đã quên mất chuyện này. "Nói đi, tình
    hình Đông phương Thần giới rốt cuộc là sao?" Đoạn Vân lạnh lùng nói.

    Sắp xếp lại dòng suy nghĩ, Tiểu Phi Hiệp nói: "Lão Đại, theo những lời
    khai báo của Thiên sứ ta tra hỏi, bọn họ nói thực lực Đông phương Thần
    giới trước khi Nữ Thần trả thù Ma tộc, thì mạnh hơn so với Tây phương
    Thần giới của bọn chúng. Hơn nữa, cho dù là sau đó Nữ Thần gặp phải thất
    bại lớn, tổn thất gần mười vạn Thần tộc đại quân, Đông phương Thần giới
    vẫn như trước có năng lực ngăn cản sự tiến công của Tây phương Thần
    giới. Chỉ có điều, sau khi Đông phương Thần giới đệ nhất mãnh nam Thú
    Thần phản công Ma giới bị mất tích cùng với Long Thần tạo phản sau đó,
    thực lực Đông phương Thần giới liền bị yếu đi một chút. Nhưng nghe nói
