Chains don't stretch except for some settling in when new. When the factory grease inside the o-rings fails (or the o-rings fail first), the chain starts to wear rapidly and gets longer due to the excessive clearance between worn pins and rollers.
"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.
"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
