Too funny

A few days ago, I got this email. It isn't unusual that some foreign maker of cheap rugs contacts me like this.
I had to share this with you......because it had me giggling quite uncontrollably.
Here goes.........


hi there,
we are manufacturers of Hand Wooven Rag Rugs. Plz take a look at our website ................... we can make your job very easy by providing you your desired Rag Rugs. No doubt we are much experienced and offering a lot at very low prices and capable to supply bulk quantity.
Hope you will not ignore my offer and check my prices.
Looking Fwd,
Adnan Amjad

And I very politely answered:



Thanks, but I make my own rugs.

He comes right back with this:


thanks for your reply. but you can sale more rugs than only the one,s u make.

Still being nice, I say:


I hear what you are saying, but my rugs are made in the USA, by me, one at a time. That is what matters to me, and to my customers.
Thanks anyway.

So he says:


thats wht u think otherwise u can sale my rugs also as u r an american ???? wht u think ??

So I thought that was that.....I didn't answer him.
Then tonight I got this one, which tipped me over.
Pretty funny stuff.

i am drunk and answering ur mail plz dont ignore. we can make business. dont ignore my ooffer or if u get an order of bulk. u cant fullfill tht seperateely. but i can
regards Dani(adnan amjad)



I bleeped the name of the web site, don't want to start a war. But this was just too much. Rugs made in Pakistan, by people making pennies a day probably.
I would close my doors first.

Went to my zumba class today, I am TRYING. I really am.
It was fun, hard, fast, sweaty.
I liked it.
My titanium knee did not.
Pictures next post.
I promise.
