a message from jimmie

We get some ridiculous emails in our work boxes. I know them before even opening them usually by the title - this one in particular was titled 'upset'. Oh, and the sender's name is 99% of the time in all lower caps, which is also a dead giveaway - most professionals capitalize their names in their profile. It just looks better. If you don't, you should consider it.

Anyway, this one was better than usual. It was from jimmie russell (, if you want to send him a note):

The body of this one is actually more coherent than most. The grammar isn't perfect, but it's not terrible. My favorite part is the little 'poem' at the bottom. Why do these messages always have something similar? They're hilarious. They never make any sort of sense. It's as though a random word generator just threw them together.

Happy weekend!
