So I saw this post on Craigslist the other day (emphasis mine):|

I've been job hunting for a long time now, and it's been getting really depressing, and to see someone get snippy like that sort of cheesed me off, so I went ahead and emailed them:
Your post on craigslist makes you sound like a dickhead.
And I got an email back saying:
I think that's just hilarious. If I could, I would hug the person who sent it.
