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!

Thanks!
Kindra

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:

Don,

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.

excuse-me-dance

You know when you are walking straight towards someone and you end up doing the excuse-me-dance? You both are trying to get out of each other’s way, and you both end up going in the same direction, and then you both switch back. Again and again. It’s kind of funny, right?

Well today I was at Target, happily minding my own business when I encountered a very large, big-headed, bald man (you’ll see why these details are crucial in a moment). We were heading straight for each other down an aisle and we ended up doing the excuse-me-dance.  No big deal…or so I thought! The man passes by me and says, “Fucking Pinhead”.  Seriously? Was that really necessary? I’m sorry that you wasted a nano-second on me doing the excuse-me-dance but I don’t think name calling is in order.  And ok, I know I have a small head, but I don’t think you should be commenting on anyone’s head.  Dude, your head was freakishly large and insanely reflective. There was a split second where I imagined myself turning around and running full steam into him and tackling him to the ground while screaming “fat-head jerk!!!!”  Instead I walked away fuming and wondering why he was imposing his bad mood on everyone else.




a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
