First of all, it's nice to hear someone actually having to turn a job down
these days.

Sounds like the person simply reacted and didn't bother to reread his/her
email before sending it (everyone that has ever done that, raise your
hands). Or maybe he/she is just an @ss. In either case, I say, "consider the
source" and move on. You probably made the right choice in refusing a job
there if this is the way this company handles things.
