Diary of a social distancer: a bitchy email answer that felt GOOD

You know how much I loathe these shysters who write essays for students to cheat with? Here’s an approach I got today (yesterday by the time you see it!), along with the reply I sent.

Subject: Resource Update For Your Website

My name is Erin Milligan and I just came across your website and noticed that my service can be useful for your audience.

You know how much I ‘love’ these sleaze-bag companies that help students cheat…

I work with EssayOnTime Company… and we created a Free Grammar Checker tool that you can review at https://essayontime.com.au/grammar-check/. I’d like to know whether you can add the information about it to your website https://howtowritebetter.net/writing-about-me-and-i-how-not-to-get-it-wrong/. It might make a good addition to your page and provide a lot of value to your visitors.

Let me know if this sounds interesting to you! Looking forward to hearing from you.
All the best,
Erin Milligan

TIP:  Don’t write more than
one idea per sentence. And
keep sentences fairly short.

Do you agree that these rip-off reptiles should have been neutered at birth?
