Get to think steve okay. I don't know if this happens to you. But i see i seem to get it a lot and okay. This'll be a facebook post. For example i got a friend who's in the end. They have cancer. And so i'm just so. I just i don't want to give their name but i'm putting this up there you know and it's difficult time. Unfortunately and then they'll go on to say something like this steve all the time. Fortunately most friendships abandoned you and only send a good vibrations. I decided to pose his mission in support of a very special person. I think less than half my friends were put this on their wall. You just have to copy not share. I want to know who. I can count on as soon as you do right done in the comments in the least amount of time you can tell who's therefore you cancer sucks etc. I don't like those posts tv. It's like it's like someone's. I don't think anything less of you if i don't post something the it smacks of a chain letter. I the old ones where it'd be like unless you forward this on something calamitous will happen to your family so you better do it. It's just people wanting their stuff to be to be shared all over the world and that's the way either they're going about it for sure right. That's that's a little different right. That's a little bit if you don't do it. You may not get the luck. This one is if you don't do it okay. You're not a very good friend of mine right. That's what these are saying right now.
