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

Hello,

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.

Mike

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 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.

Mike
