The bloody cheek of it!

I've recently been helping a guy who goes to the pub with his computer. He's not very good at it - far from it. What's worse is he doesn't listen - "Click on this" "I have done" "No, you haven't" "Click on this" "I have done" "no you haven't" - sometimes I think he forgets I'm looking at his monitor over remote assistance and can see when he's not doing as he's been told! He's your typical luser.

Anyways, I wasn't really going to mention this on here until I went to the pub last night... to be told by the landlord... "Guess what, he's told me that your English isn't very good". Bah, the cheeky fuck. Strangely enough the night before I'd commented that this guy's English was appalling!

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

One of these exhibits is an email from him to me. The other one is an email from me to him. Both are the complete emails minus salutations. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it is work out which one is which and which one has the better use of the English language. Yeah, I've reread what I wrote and can see some possible punctuation errors, blah blah. I'm not asking which one has perfect English, more of a relative measurement. Okay?

I know what's being talked about in the emails makes it somewhat easier to work out who's tech support and who's the novice, so there aren't any prizes...
