A funny take on an actual exchange of emails. Don't you just love the buy sell sites on the internet. 

Tale of a Sale of a Sail Off the Rail



The initial exchange was pleasant enough

Seemed he was interested in making the sale

My email for details rather off the cuff

With the data in hand I took up an ale


The photos sent were inconclusive

I asked for more and designs as well

His email retorted was less that effusive 

No more data it’s a friend’s mainsail to sell


I thanked him sincerely and passed on the sale

He emailed that I had been wasting his time

I suggested a sales course worth his while

A rough cob mood wouldn’t earn him a dime

I echo Larry's assessment, and am now going to incorporate the winsome phrase "rough-cob mood" into my vocabulary!
