You've Got Mail...From Steve Jobs

This story is almost unbelievable, if it is true.

Let me ask you this...Can you image any circumstances under which the CEO of a mega-company would email a college student an tell her to “Please leaves us alone”.
What CEO would do that?
Apple CEO Steve Jobs did.
According to Post Long Island University student Chelsea Issacs she was trying to impress her journalism teacher by getting an outside quote for an article she was writing. She thought it would help her get a better grade. The ambitious young lady found a way to email Apple’s Prince Steve Jobs himself and asked for a comment.
Shockingly, the billionaire emailed back, but here is what he wrote “Our goals do not include helping you get a good grade”.
Steve, come on. Are you kidding? Why be like that? Why didn’t you just ignore the email.
Jobs response offended Chelsea and she wrote back...”If you get a message from a client or a customer isn’t it your job to return the call? That’s what I always thought, but I guess it’s not one of your goals”
OK Steve, drop this right now. You are above’re worth $5/6 billion. You don’t need this.
Did Steve take my advise? Not! Jobs writes back, “ Nope, we have over 300 million users and we can’t respond to every single request, unless they have a problem of some kind. Please leave us alone”.
Steve, Stevie, Steveo...I think you went too far.
Now Chelsea is famous. You look bad and I’ll bet, bet she got an A on that paper.
