The Luxury of a Negative Thought

Found in my inbox this morning—an overnight book buyer’s response to Amazon’s automated order confirmation email which was automatically forwarded to me:
Re: Your Amazon Marketplace Purchase

I ONLY WANTED ONE COPY OF THE BOOK "YOU CAN'T AFFORD THE LUXURY OF A NEGATIVE THOUGHT". I DON'T KNOW WHY I RECEIVED TWO NOTICES. IF I AM BEING CHARGED FOR TWO COPIES WHEN I ONLY ORDERED ONE I WILL REPORT YOU.
