Fun With Hate Mail

When you have a somewhat high-profile website/fansite, rude, hateful, and oftentimes downright crazy emails of all kinds come in from all sorts of people from all sorts of places. Some of them are just priceless and beg to be shared with the world. 

This is one such email:
Names have been withheld to protect the stupid

hey u... I' writing this e-mail in the name of all the italian girls that hadn't the possibility of buying tickets for the Rome Film Fest... thank u very much... you broke our dreams... you stole our chance to see Rob and Kris the first time they would have been in Italy... u all could see them and have seen them everyday on the set while they're shooting... we can't believe that... we are so mad at u... we can't decribe how disgusted and angry we are... we are only 17 and this was our chance to see the actors... u have the 25% of the tickets that was up to us... and we will always hate u for that... u are pathetic in your thirties still acting like u were 17... WE are 17... and this is our moment....

The Italian Girls without a ticket just because of u


Now, I didn't jump to any conclusions. A LOT gets past me, and there are tons of things that I'm the last to find out about.  Although, the thought did come to mind that Twilight Moms will do some crazy things in large numbers, ie our massive trip to Forks or the increasingly large get-togethers for no reason other than we are all addicted to each other, thus, a mass exodus to Rome, Italy might actually not be too far fetched. But, somehow I just don't think I could miss something like that being planned, ya know? 

So, in response, I'd just like to say to this person you are obviously very misinformed if you think that I or any of the Administrators were so lucky as to get to attend the Rome Film Festival. You are very naive to think that we somehow scored any tickets to an event so far out of our ability to even attend AND you are even more naive to think that we somehow scored such a vast number of tickets to an event on the other side of the world that you would have no chance to even attend yourself! It is extremely naive to place blame for your inability to attend a public event on people you don't know anything about and who are thousands of miles away from you. When you go making outrageous unfounded claims in a childish tantrum on behalf of all young Italian girls, you do them a great disservice. Fortunately, we know that you do not speak on behalf of them and they are much smarter than to let someone they don't know express an opinion for them. In the future, please look into every aspect of an issue before you go pointing fingers.

Thanks!

(Now wasn't that fun?)

No one told me we got all the tickets to the Rome Film Fest...Heck no one even told me there was a film fest in Rome! Who got a ticket for me? I hope they got me a plane ticket and babysitter too...

lisa said...

Babysitter? No problem... there happen to be a WHOLE slew of teen girls right there in Rome that aren't doing anything because apparently we get there first!

Amy said...

You mean we're not going to the festival. Dang it!! I wonder if I can sell all these extra tickets I bought on ebay...

Britten said...

Well, you know what they say about really knowing you've made it in life when random, whiny, teens hate your guts.

Jennifer said...

Lisa, I am so sorry for the hate mail you get but I have to say that is downright funny! Sigh... teenagers! So drama!

Amber, Dan, and Fam said...

Okay that is just not right. You buy out all the tickets to the festival, and you don't even feel the need to share one with me?! How could you Lisa!! ;p

Wow that is a very interesting e-mail. See this is why I have no desire to be an Mod/Admin (not that anyone has every asked me, but you know what I mean...hee hee)

Miss you, and wish we were back in Forks. :)

Dana said...

I really hope that was your true response to her!!! LOL

Mary said...

Oh dang! I totally forgot to tell you guys that I bought all of those tickets to the Rome Festival...I couldn't actually go, but I thought it'd be funny to buy them and make them unavailble...just to annoy the Italian teens...you know how us pesky moms can be!

Georgia said...

Lisa!

I thought you were my friend... I can't believe you would withhold all of those tickets and not even offer one to me! Its not FAIR! We are Hannity and Colms dammit! We planned a hostile takeover of an unnamed place, to be achieved with rainbows, kitty cats, and LOVE! I am just so sad that the person I thought was my BFF didn't give me one of her many many tickets to the Rome Film Festival!

Jenny said...

It was me...sorry...I took all the tickets out of spite. I knew I wouldn't be able to go but I couldn't let those Italian girls have all the fun...lol.
