Don’t Even – a collection of e-mails by John Lindsay sent to people who post classified ads. Lindsays’ goal is to mess with them, confuse them, and/or piss them off.

Available  also as a book.

An example of an email conversation:

Original ad:
if anyone wants a ride from baltimore to nyc tomorow let me know! i am driving up there sometime tomorow afternoon and would be glad to help someone out if they want to throw up some money for gas. i drive a hybrid, so i wont need much!

From Mike Partlow [made up name] to *************@*********.org


I do need a ride to New York tomorrow. That would be great. My only concern is the fact that you drive a hybrid car. I don’t want to give people the idea that I care about the environment. Do you have another, more manly car that we could ride up in? I really don’t want to be seen in a hybrid. I’ll gladly compensate you for gas.



From christine ********* to Me
no all i have is my hybrid. what is the big deal, who cares what people think? u should be glad to help the enviroment!


From Mike Partlow to christine **********

I’m sorry Christine but it isn’t the 60’s anymore. People aren’t a bunch of earth-saving hippies that run around and hug trees anymore. Does your car have tinted windows? I really don’t want to be seen riding in that bitch-mobile. My only request is that you stop by a lake somewhere so I can dump a can of motor oil in it, to make up for all of the earth that your car will be saving. Don’t worry, I’ll pay for the motor oil.



From christine ********* to Me

wtf is wrong with u! im not giving u a ride ur a jerk!!!


From Mike Partlow to christine **********

Well I am sorry you won’t have the privilege of riding with me. Fortunately for me, I found a better, more badass ride to NYC. I’ll be sure to wave at your crappy little hybrid as we pass you in our F-350, spraying cans of aerosol out the window and throwing empty six-pack holders into the sea.
