NWR: Why are people so rude! UGH

This is just a vent so feel free to skip by LOL.

I work in marketing for a pretty innovative real estate company that offers a guaranteed lease program (you buy a home from a builder we work with, we guarantee the lease on your current home for 6 years) and most of the time I absolutely LOVE my job. 

However, Part of my job is sending out our email campaigns (updates, deals, promos, etc.), I send these out once or twice a month to all of our potential clients. Side note: The ONLY way we get peoples info is if THEY send it to us requesting information. And EVERY time I send an email I get tons of rude responses...seriously? just click the unsubscribe button and move on. Seriously, I know i shouldn't take it to heart...but it seriously bothers me. Just one of those days I guess. 

Just a rant. sorry.

    I used to work in sales for a corporation and they would do e-mail blasts to all our of our prospects for us.  So my prospects would receive an e-mail "from me". They were also only people who had reached out to us in the past.  Everytime people would send me bitchy e-mails, I had a nice response for them.  It went something along the lines of, "I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience and would be more than hapy to re-move you from our mailing list.  Unfortunately, for your privacy I am unable to do that.  If you simply click the "unsubscribe" button located at the bottom of the original e-mail you will be removed from our system". Technically I could click the unsubscribe button for them, but if they were rude to me I figured I would point out their lack of intelligence for a second...really who doesn't look for an unsubscribe button at the bottom of an automated e-mail?

    <div>I was totally thinking this because I ALWAYS look for one (since I've been getting emails from vendors post-wedding and I wanted to unsubscribe. The only reason I continued to subscribe for so long was incase my contracted vendors somehow bailed last minute)</div>

    Exactly!  I get so much spam e-mail and have always been able to find the "unsubscribe" button when I look for one.
