12 Jun

The same “J” described in Fe-mail #2 Property asks a Sista to buy him a second copy of CD he already has; when she asks why he needs two copies he becomes angry and asks:

Y do some people need to over complicate a simple ting? Lol I gotta laugh cz it’s kinda silly. It’s only a yes or no ting, instead u tryin to wrk out all kinda irrelevant tings. Intelligent peeps like u Shud no better than to try work out everything! And nt dat I need to say bt no I’m nt lyin I just want a copy pls if poss. Y so hard or u av to no all da reason that I want it? Cmon sis simple tings!!!

An argument comprising of 14 emails ensues. He eventually reveals he wants a second copy for his car and hurls a series of thinly veiled insults at Sista implying she is too clever for her own good. The final four emails in the exchange read:
