Craigs List Douche

As I’ve previously mentioned, I have a Craigslist ad for my freelance services.  Sometimes, a “response” to this ad gets through my spam filter and worms its way into my inbox.  This time, I believe I have by chance located a kindred spirit.  He writes:

Saw  you ad on Craigs List.  I was struggling to use my writing and editing skills to make a living. Then by accident I found a Web site where people who like writing could make a great living. You use your talents, to write articles, and market your own niche web sites. You can check it out right now or keep reading . I explain more in detail below.

I immediately realized that there is a reason that this poor soul was unable to use his writing and editing skills to make a living.  I decided to demonstrate for him.

Lee– can I call you Lee?– I believe you may want to consider a new career path.  I just don’t think writing and editing is for you.  I’m sorry, I know this can be hard to hear, but I think you’ll benefit from the advice in the long run.  Go die in a fire.



  1. I wish you had published the jpegs a little bigger, or more legibly (more contrast, maybe?)—I can’t quite make them out. But this seems like an awesome moment of revenge.

    Beware the Editor With Too Much Free Time!

    Sorry, I was at work and in a rush (hence the crappy scan). I may try to fix them later.
