WTF Friday

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.

I'm just sitting here imagining all of the ways his life must be inadequate if he takes the time to send an e-mail like this to someone he doesn't even know.

Sizzle - clearly Seattle needs you, although I fear for your dating life if Seattle is filled with assholes like this.

isn't it great how one person now has the authority to speak for their entire city? those crazy kids from Seattle, they are just a step ahead of us all. Ha.

Dumpling to Seattle: Watch Yourself!

What's the matter Seattle? Think you don't have what it takes anymore? Think you can't handle someone as bold, brassy and brainy as Ms. Sizzle? You're just chicken is all... trying to bully people into not moving there...

And newsflash: Seattle doesn't have a monopoly on high housing prices, bad traffic and precipitation, so don't think THAT is what makes you unique.

Why are you so bitter, Seattle? You gave the world Starbucks, Frasier Crane and that cool Space Needle thinggy with the restaurant on top (and don't worry, Sizzle won't be going there - she hates heights)... If you're THAT unhappy with yourself, then you NEED Ms. Sizzle to move there just to shake things up!

(and NO, she will not be buying dinner for everyone - you're a big city, you can buy people their own dinners)

Watch yourself, Seattle... You don't know who you're messing with.

I thought it was kinda funny in either a "we need to talk Sizzle out of moving or she'll outshine us all" or a "I wish Sizzle weren't moving to Seattle and would stay here in Santa Cruz with us" sorta way.

But I guess someone else wants to be on your top ten list worse than me.

Get up there and show 'em what's what!

Can't wait to see how this turns out.

JustRun said...

WTF? is right! What a lame attempt at humor and/or intimidation.

FYI- I know people in Seattle. They are fantastic. You will have no problem calling it home. From my expereince there, it has place and space for every kind. Unfortunately, that also includes the "Idiots Who E-mail" category.

Are you sure that the MJ he was referring to wasn't Mary Jane Watson from the Spider-Man comic books? If not, it should be.

Gary said...

Hey, he's not the boss of Seattle.

Hope you have a nice Santa Cruz weekend. :)

Wombat & Aspen said...

Oh, I can't wait for your dating stories from Seattle.

Jill said...

W! T! F!

Bre said...

Maybe he heard you were hot stuff and was trying to be amusing... obviously it wasn't working but I did say trying

Girl From Ipanema said...

You *GO* Miss Sizzle...I do believe we still live in a free country--we ain't lost all of our rights yet.

You need to slapp that person silly... :)

Amanda said...

Where did this guy come from?? My response would be f*&^ off!

jenny said...

Okay, that is so weird! Did your friend tell you who it is yet?

Maybe "MJ" is actually Michael Jackson, in which case the email may have been from Macauley Culkin.

Very, very weird.

Jacynth said...

I say send this guy some patchouli and see how he hacks it!

Nihilistic said...

Again it looks like I must offer my services to ask the question..."You want I should take care of him?"

Aimee said...

WTF, indeed! Sounds like someone's cruisin' for a bruisin'!

Bill said...

"Grunge is dead." Geez, that should be the city slogan to pull in tourists and business and put some life in the economy. (By the way ... grunge was dead when it started - that was the initial attraction that lasted for about a nano second.)

Based on this e-mail, Seattle clearly needs new blood.

Jules said...

that's it then.
you're staying here.

Kerry said...

Dang! That's a mean email! I'd move there for sure now, just to piss em off more! ;)

Trout said...

Hey. You don't know me. I was randomly surfing blog comments and somehow found yours, etc.

A note about Seattle. I lived there for 2.5 years and mostly enjoyed it, but the rain and traffic eventually became too much. If you go, look for huge houses to share with, like, 9 other people in neighborhoods like Wallingford and Ballard. Cheap, and there's never a dull moment in places like that.

Good luck!
