You sound heavenly, Nigel.
Seriously, if everyone sent e-mails the way you do, maybe people wouldn't be pulling out their hair and considering homicide whenever they tried to sell/lease a horse.
The BIGGEST peeve I've ever had was that people DON'T READ the actual ad, and ask questions that have already been answered in the ad.
The 'wish shoppers' are also annoying as hell, especially the tweens/teens who send messages like this, "Oooh, I luv your horsie! He's sooo pretty! I don't have any money, but if you give him to me I'd give him the bestest home and love him 4evah!"
And please, if you're a total noob, DO NOT send e-mails to people who have 'horse needs intermediate or advanced rider ONLY' in the ad, telling them how you'd lurve to buy the horse, and would he be good for a beginner? That tells them you're not only a noob, but stupid as well, since you apparently can't read.
