I got this in my email in box today. The subject was:
Seattle to Sizzle: Piss Off!
What's this? Yet another person wanting to move to Seattle? Haven't you heard? We're no longer "hip." Grunge is dead. Our housing prices are way too steep. And grunge is dead. Plus you're from Santa Cruz. Everyone knows Santa Cruz is full of hippies! We don't like hippies here! If you're a damn hippy just move to Portland where you belong! Or better yet, Eugene! Plus in Six feet Under Lisa's horrible sister and cheating husband lived in Santa Cruz. So people from Santa Cruz are NOT welcome in Seattle. And do you know what it's doing outside right now? It's raining. In May. And traffic sucks, too. So stay away!
Actually, you can come here. If you buy everyone here in Seattle dinner. That's right. Everyone. Then maybe you can stay. Maybe.
I emailed him back: Who in the hell are you?
He responded: You better ask MJ about that.
He knows a friend of mine? WTF? This MJ, my friend, is one of the nicest fellas I know. Why would he know an asshole like this? Why would he give him my email?
So I forwarded the message to MJ asking WTF.
And responded to the email ass with a: I don't appreciate your email. You don't even know me!
If this guy was trying to be "funny" he failed miserably. I am so not amused.
