Good Afternoon Christopher! 

I received your email through another small business that you have recently made a purchase from. I wanted to let you know that my business, Margaret’s Masks, is having a huge sale this week and because you are a new customer, the sales are even better! Please consider supporting my small business! My masks make great gifts and are even customizable! Our masks range from surgical grade to designer! If you are interested please visit my website or respond to this email to make your order! 

Thank you, 

Margaret

Hello Margaret, 

I am going to have to decline this offer. Since last April when the CDC recommended everyone in perfect health wear a face covering in public, I have been in protest. I believe that wearing a mask is a way for the government to control what I do and how I do it. I will wear a mask if I feel sick and if I do not, I am not a threat to anyone around me. Not to mention, I only leave my house to get car parts for my 1978 Trans Am that I work on by myself. I will not be needing your coupons. I appreciate the offer, Margaret. 

Thanks But No Thanks, 

Chris Anderson

Hello Again Christopher,

I was debating on responding to this last email with concern that I will come off as unprofessional to a potential customer. I understand your point of view with masks, however I also understand the point of view of the thousands of people that put themselves at risk being on the front lines of this pandemic or having underlying health conditions or being immunocompromised.. And the list can go on. If you do not want to buy a mask from me, I completely understand and accept that! However, please do yourself and everyone around you a favor and purchase a cheap face covering or a recommended surgical grade mask (which are also not very expensive). With that being said, I respect your opinion and I am glad we had this conversation. Have a good evening! 

Remember to wash your hands 🙂

Hi Margaret, 

This will be my last email to you or your company. I appreciate you taking the time to respond to my previous email. I will wear a mask when I feel it is necessary. I respect the doctors and nurses that work through this pandemic very much, but that does not change my opinion. I looked at your website and it is very admirable for you to donate some of the proceeds to front line workers. I like what you’re doing but I am a very opinionated person and stick to my word and my protests. 

P.S. I will take two normal blue surgical grade masks from your site. My information for ordering and shipping are in the document attached to this email. 

Good Day, 

Christopher
