Hi there!
I saw your ad on craigslist, do you still have the spin bike? I was about to buy a spin bike on Amazon, but I’d rather buy a used one (reduce, reuse, recycle!). I’ve only got $250 to spend on a bike, and I know this is half of what you’re asking, but I thought I’d at least email to see if you’re interested. Let me know if this is something you could do, if not, no big deal!

Well, I don’t mind washing my car, but if you wouldn’t mind…it does need to be vacuumed.

Settle down! I just don’t want to waste my time or yours if you aren’t in my price range. It’s not a big deal. I will get one off Amazon.

What a JERK. You can see from my first email that I was really nice and immediately his first response is short, curt and riddled with horrible grammar. I was trying to make fun of him in my second email with the “U” and the “ur”, but I don’t think he got it.  If I could hit rewind and do it again, I would have responded with the following:


Just because your name sucks, don’t take it out on me. Why would I waste my time looking at the bike if you aren’t going to be flexible with the price? It’s pointless.

Just a tip, using ridiculous abbreviations and poor grammar is only acceptable if you’re a 4th grader or you’re sexting. It’s not ok for a grown man to write this: “Its still available. Not gonna talk price until U take a look first.” There are at least three mistakes in your response! Also, an earthlink email address? Why don’t you join us in the 21st century and get a real email address. Let me guess, you still use AOL as your web browser?

Good luck selling your bike, ASS.

Hehehe. I would never send an email like that, but it sure would be funny if I did. P.S. – I don’t really think the name Don sucks, I was just trying to think of mean things to say. I also don’t mind abbreviations in moderation. Oh, and the “DonX” is not really the first part of his email.

    hahaha!!I am giggling, because I SO MUCH feel your pain! Think about it, Don! Do we have nothing better to do than take up two people’s evenings looking at a bike that is too much money?
    In case you doubt yourself, as I sometimes do, you were perfectly reasonable, and your intent was very clear, and he truly is a jerk. One of those 40 going on 11 guys. Good Heavens. (What to you think, probably single?)

    hi there,
    i found your blog searching for a post of mine on google and well, this is the funniest thing i have read all day!
    People with bad grammar suck. Period.
    God, all you wanted was a spin bike, was that so much to ask – I think not!

    Initially I kind of agree with Donny’s point that you approached him like you were buying a rug in a Mumbai open market. But loved how you immediately shifted into his vernacular and texting shortcuts. The unsent email had me LOL’ing and ROFL’ing!!
