I guess he did not read my blog posts, and was hiding behind the door when God passed out brains. You just can't make this stuff up.
We returned a manuscript we really liked with three significant suggestions to make it better. Here are a few select excerpts from the submitter's (I hesitate to use the word "author") reply:
1. "I can't believe it took you two months to come back to me with these suggestions. I don't think that is very good customer service if you want me as an author."
2. Two of my friends, both very honest about my labors, think the manuscript as presented is perfect. So does my wife of fifteen years, who has an English degree and teaches the subject. Do you have an English degree?"
3. "I don't think I am going to make any of these changes. Do you want to publish my work or don't you?"
I attached and returned the picture below to him via email and bid him farewell.
