You sir are the reason this economy is the way it is.I am a seasoned professional finisher/refinisher. What the fuck? I was laid from a local cabinet shop a couple of months ago. $9 an hour is barely a green helper wage. I make more than that on unemployment. YOU STUPID FUCK!!!!! You are a pathetic excuse for an American. I would like to get to know you up close and personal and refinish your fucking ass bitch. I hope you speak espaneeesh. Maybe you can get the illegal mexican you are looking to hire under the table to call the rest of his family in from mexico to take care of your boyfriend for you. Who can live on that? E-mail me back with a time and place FUCK. Signed an AMERICAN BORN AND BRED CRAFTSMAN. I bet you drive a foreign vehicle YOU FUCK!
Dear Mr. American-born-and-bred-craftsman:
I can tell that you're a real American, because you can't think. Not at all.
First, let's correct the most glaring of your grammatical mistakes. You said you were "laid from a local cabinet shop". That's incorrect. You should have written that you were laid "at" a local cabinet shop. Typical American male, bragging about having sex at work.
We'll overlook your complete lack of understanding of how commas work and the 5 unnecessary exclamation points. (I would have used only two.) As for content, you are a major potty-mouth and a bigot. Remarking on that poor employer's sexual orientation makes me wonder if he is the one you had sex with at the local cabinet shop. Perhaps he let you go because he realized the work you were doing was only worth $9/hour.
Let it go, son. Blaming that boss for the bad economy is not helpful. Let that employer seek his sub-wage employee. Go back to school and get the education you missed the first time around.
