I've read other blogs and thought this could be a place for me to post pictures of me and Jon doing boring things.
But that would not be as exciting as this following conversation regarding a bike we were selling:
HI NICE BIKE BUT YOU HAVE THE FRONT FENDER ON BACKWARDS.
I replied: sorry for offending your sensibilities.
He said: IF YOUR SELLING A $75.00 BIKE FOR $275.00 I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD AT LEAST ASSEMBLE IT CORRECTLY ?
I shot back: If you're (not your) offering advice you should take off CAPS LOCK. And be sure of your punctuation? Or was that really a question?
Then I felt a little guilty, so I said: You are right that the fender is on backwards, we'll fix that. Thanks for that. But if it had at all sounded like your advice was meant to help rather than to be a jerk, maybe you wouldn't sound so arrogant and condescending. Then again maybe that's what you were going for.
But seriously that guy was a douche.
