FE-ic

The design on the tee-shirt pictured is what started this little customer service email exchange that was included in the Despair.com newsletter (which is always entertaining!). I got a laugh out of it and wanted to share.

His email is unsubscribe@wailinglist.com. Please write him immediately.

And seriously, the last time I heard "igmo" used unironically was in 1985, when I was in junior high. It's time to update your vernacular. (Please tell me you don't also say "Butt smoke!" when you hear people get insulted...)

(My name):

Please unsubscribe <(removed)@(removed)> from The Wailing List. I just spent 15 minutes trying to explain the Ironic Tee to her- unsuccessfully. She does not appear to have ever ordered anything from us- despite being on the Wailing List since 2003. So I don't believe she'll be missed.

Also, please remind Mark and the others in the call center not to provide my cell phone number to people who aren't either peers in industry or reporters with high-circulation periodicals. It is more than a little awkward to be discussing remedial chemistry with an incensed, sub-literate, non-customer while test driving a Lexus LX470 with the Lexus head of sales.

p.s. - In case your wondering, yes, I got the car. What a beauty- and truly a steal at $70,000!

p.p.s. - Please don't share the price of the car with other employees. Since that's more than twice the average salary here, I'm afraid it might be damaging to morale.

regards,
E.L. Kersten, Ph.D.

At Dr. Kersten's request, I am unsubscribing you from The Wailing List. Thank you.

p.s.- Butt smoke!

Maybe she was anemic.

Irony.

Fe-ic, rather.

Funny, blueberry.
