Ummm, whhhaaatt?

I like how the only English in this one is what they copied directly from PSI's site :)

I'm going to formulate a reply with some REALLY big thesaurus words in it when I get back from sitting. If anyone has suggestions let me know!

Here is my first reply (I have multiple email addresses, so I'll just play with him from all):

I’m sorry but our business does not meet the following qualifications of yours:

* The sitter keeps regular office hours and responds to client inquiries and complaints promptly.
* The sitting service screens applicants for employment carefully. (we don’t have any)
* The sitting service provides initial and ongoing training for its sitters. (we don’t have any)
* The sitter phones to confirm, or has the client phone to confirm, that the client has returned home.

Sorry that we will not fit your needs. 

Here is my response to his response:

As a commissioner of this pet sitting business I to no degree speculate and portray our business productivity measures as handled perfectly. The representatives of this venture, including myself would postulate that as a measure of being human we all make mistakes in our capacity as breadwinners. However I have come to the conclusion that our track record is bordering on impeccable.

We do offer the vast majority of the services you have specified in the proceeding submission. We can accommodate very broad requests, and trust you will ring or text or email us again soon with your service requirements so that we can provide you with more definitive details about our company and respond with the most appropriate information to your most pressing questions.

We look forward to your upcoming return response.

Prez,
PetWI Pet Sitters

Can't forget to mention that you will be sending them a check as "proof" of your incorporated business structure, which they must cash upon receipt and then return 90% of said contents of check in US dollars to you therefore allowing them to maintain the remaining 10% as a token of your now newly developed relationship. :smt081
