From China with Love

So I get this e-mail the other day from Edward at Hotwind Sauna.   I was surprised and delighted to get his communication and felt that it was of only a matter of ettiquette that I write back as he indicated that he was waiting for my reply.  If we know one thing about me, it's that I am nothing if not polite and who am I to deny Edward the follow up that he so richly deserves?   What follows below is Edward's E-mail to me and the response that I sent him this morning.

2011/7/27 Hotwind Sauna--Edward

Looking for your follow up

With my best regards


Dear Edward,

Thank you for contacting me about your sauna cabinet product. What flavors do these cabinets come in? Do you offer a high fiber/low fat option? If so, how many stone does it weigh and will it still respect me in the morning? I sure hope so because I have a friend that took a hotwind sauna to the rodeo and it got trampled by a bull. How would you propose that we address this and future injustices?

Please remember to put the wash in the dryer.

I would like to put this right up there with when my husband pulls all of his pocket lint out and puts it into the return envelope of a credit card application and mails it back to them. That. Is. Awesome.

And also slightly dangerous, I learned. Because when the grammar is not could be a virus. A very expensive-to-fix virus which will cost 1/2 of China to fix and take the Geek Squad about a week to get it done. Because viruses aren't written for smartphones (yet), I open everything like that on my phone. But usually I just delete it altogether. So perhaps I'll live through you on this.

I LOVE it! It has never occurred to me to send an equally non-sensical reply. What fun to write one.

Bossy Betty said...

Loved this! Please do let me know if they come in a high fiber option.

With NASA being out of commission now, do you think those scientists could come up with a way to destroy spam once and for all?? Let's suit up and find out, guys!!

Ha!Good work!

I looked them up. Hotwind Sauna, they really exist and they have Accessories! I wonder if it includes a bottle of Beano?

I propose that everyone engage in return spam whether it be of the email or pcoket lint in a snail mail return envelope (Thank Neal for that brilliant idea)as a means of stemming the tide of stupidity.

You've made me laugh with your response. I'm glad it wasn't snarky, just confusing for the poor sod at the other end of it, but alas it probably never got read anyway.

Linda Medrano said...

I love your response. Poor Edward. He's going to think he made a sale.

Susan said...

Needless to say but I don't think you will be getting any more e-mail from them-LOL!

Angelika said...

LOL. I love your reply. ☺

MiMi said...

Ok. So I just found your blog from a friend of a friend of a friend. And ..I love it. My blog is snip-its of lighthearted layered with worries and fears from a few life - changing - events. (although... sometimes the old me comes back out - the one who took a picture of poop because I couldn't believe my first born did THAT. Thanks for making that girl smile. Come visit some day.
