The similarities are there because the driver did *not* write it.
this email has been circulating on the internet since at least Feb
2004. The slight differences in some parts of the text are due to
"evolution" as people add their touch before forwarding it on. Over
several generations, some of these prank emails can become quite
different from the original. Sort of like the game of telephone if
you played that as a kid.
