Nice Email


'your short story is shit, your head is up your ass. face reality your in a careerless deadend job surrounded by yes men. and wipe the come of your chin youve been sucking on (my boss) c**k too much.'

So goes an email I received yesterday. I had just turned on the pc and in it flew.

I love the way the sender used asterix on the word cock but couldn't find the apostrophe key. No caps either but full stops with spaces after, oddly thought out but rushed. I suspect someone with an urge to fit in but who is a tad anti-establishment. A conforming non-conformist. Or a plain dope perhaps.

My favourite part has to be 'your surrounded by yes men.' Bad grammar aside, I think that's a compliment. If he said 'you're just like all the yes men' I woulda been offended.

Hate mail. I think that means I've arrived.

How can you suck c**k if your head is up your arse? Physically impossible I'd say...

Charming.

A vivid demonstration of how not to write.

And satisfying to delete.

Jaysus, further proof, if it were needed, that the writing world is full of bitter nut-jobs.
A horrible thing to find in your inbox. Do you know who sent it? Suspicions?

That is crazy, why on earth would they send that to you?

which story is your friendly critic referring to? Is it about raping babies or something? He (she?) obviously needs a good cry and a hug. Maybe it was your your ma? Mas can be like that, very emotional by times.

Yeah it's a weird one. I wish they told me which story. I might agree with them! It's from an unfamiliar name but I have my suspicions.
