Our anonymous submitter has held on to this e-mail for more than five years now, but she still has no idea what she did to offend the sender. She barely knew him at the time, she says, “and needless to say, I don’t know him any better now, except I have a better handle on his mental state.”

Apparently you never received my e-mail. I found it in my mail box, promptly returned to me by the MAILER DEAMON.

    This will offend some people, but I find it amazing how most religious(bordering fanaticism) people I know are completely arrogant and have no respect to people that don’t go to the same church as they do. Also amazing how they choose which parts of the teachings they want to follow and ignore all the rest.

      Totally with the comment on religious fanatics. I went to a Lutheran liberal arts college. So many damned hypocrites went there. Four years of that totally turned me off from going to any church.

      Ya know what’s funny is that I went to this University and you’ll probably find this person yelling at you on the quad telling you how “you’re going to Hell”… ‘course my dreadlocks didn’t help at the time. …maybe they thought I was the Predator.

    He says “if you would like to remain friends”
    Sorry bubba, you weren’t her friend in the first place. The writer reminds me of several members of my extended family. I stay far far away from them. Marcelo made a great point about the fanatics only following the rules they want to follow. Guess they missed “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” “Judge not, lest ye be judged” and “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone” and of course “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us”

    Who really cares about some innocuous religious implication.

    What’s really cool is that the writer uses all different points, fonts, and even underlines to differentiate each thought.

    THAT’S what is really bizarre!!!

    Wow. Crazy, patronizing, hypocritical, crazy.

    See, that’s great. Go to church, learn about tolerance and the Golden Rule, then ignore someone’s existance.

    The writer didn’t even apologize about being crazy pissed for two Sundays because of a stupid MAILER-DAEMON error.

    That’s why I’ll never tell my kids that college is a great place to meet new people. I’ll probably say that it’s perfect place to prepare for work, since you have to put up with crazy douchebags all of the time. The only difference is that at work you get paid.

    I guess if she kept the note for five years she must be pretty curious, but obviously smart enough to know who she wants for a friend.

    “by church on Sunday” is a benchmark for time. If he doesn’t hear back from her by then, goodbye. Not, “if I don’t see you sitting in church on Sunday you’re dead to me.”

    Amanda, you’re an idiot. Of course he meant church as a religious service. I’ve traveled all around the country and I have never heard somebody use church as a benchmark for time. And don’t even try to say it’s an Ohio thing. I live in Columbus. We actually use clocks.

    The author of this e-mail is one of those holier-than-thou bible thumpers who is probably pissed at this woman because she strayed from the path and blasphemed while they were out. I work with a yahoo who runs and tells on anybody who lets a minor curse word fly.

    Maybe I’ve seen too many Westerns, but something rings a bell in my mind about Amanda’s ‘by church on Sunday’ time limit. I didn’t pick up on it until she said something.

    But, didn’t they say something to that effect? Not just ‘by noon’ someday, somewhere? And then they battled it out & settled the score in a duel.

    I’m seriously afraid for the chick that got this from the guy. In all actuality, this is how stalkers start. They assume power over others and make them aware of what the stalker thinks they did is wrong, and how they have to make up for it “or else”.

    In my own opinion, what a fuckin’ psycho!
    I love how he tells her she needs to think it over, and then get in contact with HIM.
    Yeah, most people love mulling over their supposed “wrongs” to come crawling back to someone that didn’t even realize was PISSED.

    on this note, it sounds like someone puts a little bit more value on their own self-worth than is really merrited. why anyone would want to continue to be a pal with someone like this, after a letter like this, is beyond me.

    I am willing to bet that no MAILER DAEMON ever destroyed an alleged “original” note. This whole thing had been stewing in his lunatic bean for over two weeks, and he started to realize that it’s way too long a time to remain angry at her, simply because she ate her seasoned curly fries without first saying Grace.

    So he concocted the alleged “first note” story, insisted that he is “no longer angry” but all the while was planning to make a lampshade out of her skin unless she confessed and atoned by church on Sunday.

    Man, I hope she did the right thing…

    He’s either lying or leaving something out. First he says that his e-mail *promptly* returned to him by mailer daemon. Then he says that he assumed she got it and never responded – thus explaining his behavior for two weeks.

    The mailer daemon wouldn’t have waited two weeks to send the error message.

    The problem with the stalker types when they say they’ll never talk to you again is that they never mean it and they keep calling. Since this is several years ago (she said she held on to the note for a while), I’m assuming she’s successfully managed to dodge this dodgy fellow.

    Wow. So many ways to go with this one. I wouldn’t be so quick to label him a “religious nut”. Going to church doesn’t make one a Christian any more than being in a garage makes you a car. Maybe church is just where he goes to pick up chicks? Not doing very well, obviously. If I were the sender, I wouldn’t be able to keep my mouth shut. I would just HAVE to know what my great sin is before I could let it go. Then I would probably be so sweet and contrite that he would look like an even bigger idiot (if that’s at all possible). Is he still ignoring her or is he dead?

    Also, I think that the “church on Sunday” thing is definitely talking about seeing her at church and not a colloquial way of defining a period of time. He mentions previous Sundays in his e-mail, so it seems pretty clear that these people know each other through church.

    I’d further hypothesize that it’s probably a church frequented by a lot of college students who come from different backgrounds and have varying levels of adherence to the bible. Anonymous might have been drinking a beer and laughing about the latest episode of South Park – stuff that was okay in her church back home, but was considered blasphemous to this dude. She’d never know what got him bent out of shape because their beliefs are so different.

    this is definitely Ohio State. They’re buckeyes, I mean come on! If that doesn’t say crazy then what does?

    besides his email address is something like emotionalfonts@osu.edu

    osu.edu = ohio state
    oregonstate.edu = oregon state (it’s a stretch, I know)
    okstate.edu = oklahoma state

    I do get tired of so-called “true” Christians insisting that the whack-jobs who do crazy things in the name of Christianity aren’t really Christians. But then they’ll turn around and call Muslims fanatics who can’t be trusted.

    As the recipient of this e-mail, I thought I’d address a few comments.

    - Yes, the e-mail is from Ohio State.
    - I’ve kept it all these years because it is the single most bizarre message I’ve ever received. I recently made copies of it and passed it around work after discovering that a co-worker went to college with the sender. We freaked out when we found out we both knew him and he described the sender as having “crazy eyes.”
    - We went to a pub that evening, suggested by the Melissa mentioned (Thurman’s – for the commenter from Columbus.) The sender was not of age but the rest of us were. I think we maybe had two beers a piece. We found out after the fact that the sender was completely against alcohol consumption and thought that being invited to a bar would not involve alcohol.
    - I had previously turned down the sender during the one evening we spent alone. That evening I started to say something and he cut me off with, “Be quiet, I’m thinking.” Literally 10 minutes later he said, “Okay, I’ve been thinking about all the signals you’re sending and I’ve decided you want me to kiss you.” I politely told him that he was mistaken. When he took me home that night I realized I’d forgotten my keys and I didn’t know if my roommate was home. I told him as much but when he dropped me off he didn’t even let me get to the front door to see if I was going to be locked out for the night. He just took off. At the time I took it as social awkwardness, not lunacy. (My bad)
    - Melissa coordinated the outing and invited the two guys. She liked the Patrick mentioned, and the sender may have thought I was being too flirty with him. I’m now married to Patrick and Melissa got back together with her ex the next month and got married. Sooo, in retrospect, that might not be what I did to “disgust (him)” either.
    - There apparently was a first e-mail, and he ignored me for two weeks when he thought I wasn’t responding. I didn’t even know he was ignoring me until Melissa informed me.
    - He did not stay true to the Sunday deadline. Of course, I was not going to dignify the e-mail with even the slightest response, so he called me a few days later to find out if I was going to reply. I politely said, “no” and he informed me that he was calling before Sunday to find out because he didn’t want to wait until then and then have to “Yell at (me) at church.” How considerate. I told him that he was never getting a response and hung-up.
    - He completely ignored me for the next few years when I saw him occasionally, and has since moved out of state.

    I think I have an explanation.

    A lot of people I know went to Ohio State.

    They like to talk about the good old college days, but it seems that they cannot recall ever being sober.

    I say the guy had been so drunk for so long that he started having paranoid delusions and other various imacinations of mind. Hence the weird email.

    I have to say that the recipient of this email is clearly the antagonist in this saga. I didn’t believe that until she clarified.

    1. Ladies, when in college you must know that the simple act of speaking to a guy means that you want to have sex with him.

    2. The Thurman is a well-known meat market (as evidenced by their Thurman Burger) the women who go there are all sluts. You should have gone up High street to Patrick J’s.

    3. Good girls don’t go to Ohio State. In fact, the admissions office carefully screens female applicants to make sure they will put out regularly. This helps in recruiting football players.

    It’s clear that our wrath has been misdirected. The recipient of this email simply refused to hold up her end of the bargain.

    In all seriousness, I’m glad that this didn’t get nasty for you. Every college has its share of repressed freaks but Ohio State has an average enrollment that rivals the population of a small city. Between budding serial killers enrolled in classes and the wild-eyed crack dealers waiting in the dark alleys (Chittenden Ave) it’s a wonder so many make it to graduation.

    To those of you thinking “man, my kid isn’t going there” it’s not exactly downtown Detroit but it does help to make sure your darling gets a little lesson in urban survival before attending any major university.

    Yeah, I totally thought this was a female, given that, “If you don’t know what you did I’m not going to tell you” riff (and, I am a female – who has never played that shit ).

    An the church line was classic – I was not surprised by that little nugget.

    OK, and now that I have read the recipient’s response, I have to laugh – I completely guessed that this was about alcohol in some way, and his distaste for it.

    Given the 13-year-old girl nature of the letter, the church aspect, and the general social nuttiness, I am going to say:

    even if this person thinks its wrong to drink alchohol they need to lighten up, not eberyone (clearly) agrees.

    and i stand by my statement that it was a bit cruddy to publically pass this around, unless crazy eyes worked there still and was harassing others. otherwise, it is a bit imature. sharing it between a friend, ok. but an entire office? unnecessary. and based on what “recepient” said, they did not work together, so it was rather midle-schoolish to do that.

    You know Jesus turned water into wine so I think he’d be OK with knocking back a cold one every now and then. Of course I argued with a guy who told me that when they talked about wine back then they were referring to grape juice. He tried to tell me that they didn’t know how to ferment juice in “biblical times”.

    The reality is that grapes rot quickly and converting the juice to wine was the best way to perserve it. Clean water was scarce back then so wine was the most common beverage. Think pop.

    Sorry soda drinkers, but here in Ohio we drink pop and it’s f-ing delicious.

    I’m not quite sure how everyone is okay with the fact that it was posted on a website, but the fact that I showed it to everyone in my office (5 people) more than 5 years after the fact is not.

    They don’t know this person (other than the one who knew him personally and could testify that he was a little off). They don’t even know his name. If you’ll notice from the e-mail, he took it upon himself to change the “sender” line to “n” so that I almost deleted it when I received it.

    So, when an office full of all girls and one guy start talking about crazy dates they had in the past, and I have the craziest e-mail of all, I think it is a “non-crappy” thing to do to print it out and show it off.

    I don’t think it’s a untoward to publish this email on line. We learn at a very early age to think before we speak and that goes double for writing. In this case the freak had a golden opportunity to redact his original line of thinking and either let it go or send a thoughtful message that wouldn’t reflect so badly on him.

    Once you hit that send button that message is no longer yours. It becomes the property of the person who receives it whether that recipient was intended or not. That’s why those privacy disclaimers at the end of business e-mails are so stupid. If it’s in my inbox I own it and can do whatever I want to do with it.

    I obviously had a lot of guesses, but I don’t think the drinking thing was it. The other two drank and they didn’t get nasty e-mails. Melissa even ate a foot long hot dog in three bites to win a $20 bet from Patrick and she wasn’t shunned. I figured if anything was going to piss him off, that kind of thing would.

    Let’s assume for the sake of argument that you were a horrible tease in college. Maybe you had a crush on Patrick and hoped to make him jealous by hitting on Mr. Fonts. In that situation most guys would settle on calling you a slut or a lesbian and moving on. A guy tries to hit it and if he can’t he says he did anyway. Simple, right? And women expect us to do this. Maybe, if you really were exceptionally cruel, he would have been entitled to spreading a rumor about your femine hygiene(crabs) but there’s nothing you could have done that mitigates this unsettling response. Guys are supposed to act like children, not serial killers.

    I really wish you would submit this guy’s name so we can revoke his manhood status. No self-respecting man plays the “guess-what-you-did” game and when we’re gilted we never offer ongoing friendship.

    n: in the future, just write “whore” on her windshield and move on.

    Guys, I’ve just re-read the original note and spotted this gem:

    “…it would be wise to contact me in some way and reveal to me the inner imacinations of your mind”

    Ok, apart from the fact that he’s just making words up there (which we’ve already covered – prick), I think this guy actually thinks he’s some kind of Jedi. “To contact me in some ways wise it would be.”

    It would be wise to contact me?!!! You ARSEHOLE!!! Grrr, I’ve never got so riled up about a PAN before – this one really has hit the ‘make Sair furious’ spot. Smug, self-aggrandising, smarmy, immature wanker. I hope he’s locked up in chokey (translation: jail/pen/juvey) for the stalker behaviour which he’s no doubt subjected some other poor woman to – I’ll bet he picked on a more passive victim the next time…

    Team lock n up where he belongs and let him feel some big hairy man love.

    I grew up in Ohio and went to a very right wing church as a child (think “Flashdance” or “Jesus Camp” without the speaking in tongues thing) before growing up and realizing it was all hooey.

    But we were told in church that the “wine” jesus made was just grape juice. When you’re a fundamentalist, you can make any word mean anything that fits your world view! Then, you know, I read a dictionary. :)

    Wow claw! Thanks for clarifying that I’m an idiot! I think actually GVI’s assumption about me was slightly more correct, in that assumptions are all we can make around here unless otherwise clarified. As someone who has heard variations of “by church on Sunday” used as an expression for “Sunday morning,” no amount of your travels around Ohio and the Bible belt would have convinced me that I am a blithering idiot for making that interpretation right away.

    And no, I’m not Christian, and I don’t hang around Bible-thumpers who would zestfully use that phrase literally. But since this is the internet, and since we’re are subject to your off-base assumptions about people you’ve never met, just be aware that I’ll be the one sitting here laughing the more that you make incorrect guesses about me.

    By his/her Satanic Majesty’s Request:

    My Dear recipient,
    I received, with great interest, your note of yesterday, which consisted of the single line, “OK, I’ll bite- What’s up your ass?” My hands are literally trembling as I fumble through a stack of note cards, drawn up just for this occasion. I assume that you are asking about that fateful evening we were paired as a couple, and when it was over, the various tranaggrations you committed that separated us for the past five years.

    I do now wonder how you held your curiosity about this enigmantrical situation in check so long? Did you think often about me and our last perfect evening together? Have you had any trouble relating to others as a result of our sad obnioxity? Not that I have; I have been over this for quite some time now, but I thought you might…

    In any case, is neither my place not interest to guide you in your penance. Follow your own path- realize your own shortcomings that drove you to act so disgustingly (and of course, apologize.) Know that this is not for my benefit at all- I did not even remember where my note cards were laid until I saw your note and looked for them.

    If you really intend for us to get together and address this issue over a glass of wine or something, please send me your home address and phone number, and I will arrange to give you one last chance at your own redemption. But this is a one-time offer, and I am not kidding.

    When I was MUCH younger, 3 friends and I went to a movie and spiked our pop with vodka. Needless to say we got pretty rowdy (the theatre was mostly empty and we were up in the front which didn’t help).

    At the end a woman stood up and shouted:

    “I can’t *believe* the *OBNIOXITY* of you people”

    to which we replied:”BWAHAHAHAHA! OBNIOXITY!!!BWAHAHAHAA!”

    I never knew how to spell it until now. (see #149)

    The updated e-mail was priceless – font changes and all. Though I doubt he’d offer me wine.

    No, no “n” in his name. Just check off another part of the freakshow. He took the time to change that before sending. I’d received other e-mails from him and they all had his real name. Maybe he thought I was cowering in a corner with shame over what I’d done to him and wouldn’t open the e-mail if I knew it was from him.

Now I’ve come across this very entertaining site and I realize that some of my own notes to my husband would be considered pan’s. Secondly, the comments concerning Christians remind me of any slack jawed, butt scratching, beer drinking moron spewing forth hate speech about any ethnic group that’s ever been the recipient of organized, government sanctioned bigotry.

    #165 mamason, I don’t think all of them qualify as hate speeches. Some of us have had to deal with the religious nuts waaay too much. Try being raised by Southern Baptist-no drinking- no smoking-no dancing-no gambling-but it’s ok to smack the shit out of your kids for reading demonic books-type, and see how much patience you have with pulpit pounders. I don’t hate them, I just wish they would leave me alone! Of course, putting a “Pagan and Proud” bumper sticker on my truck probably wasn’t too provocative, was it? (insert big evil grin here)
    Oh yeah, the “demonic book” was David Eddings Queen of Sorcery. I was 16. My mom smacked me in the head with the book, tore it into pieces, slapped me across the mouth, and grounded me for a year. See what I mean about religious nuts?

    It would be a bitch to figure out what time “church on Sunday” is if you’re Catholic. I mean, there’s morning Mass, Lauds, High Mass, Spanish Mass at 3, vespers, 6 pm Mass. Not to mention Saturday night Mass that counts as Sunday. I would have had no idea what my freakin’ deadline was if I wanted to apologize and still be his friend. Not that it would ever happen.

    I knew off the bat that it was an obsessive crush scolding (had a friend who would take this stance with girls he liked, albeit not quite so crazily). Go life experience.

    Recommend to sender that he grow up and indulge his repressed S&M desires. Unlikely that he’d be able to, though.

    This is a pretty great site, and is my first time discovering it, if the lateness to the party wasn’t an indicator.
