“I couldn’t hear them before because Rabbit would talk.”
I know I’m not the only one, but over the last few weeks I’ve started getting emails from businesses and companies that I haven’t heard from in weeks, months or years. For some reason all these people feel the need to “say something.” Sure, for businesses it might be a winery saying that they were closing their tasting room, or the grocery store announcing shortened hours. But if that’s all there is, that’s all they need to say! But instead of “We’re Closed” they have to say something like “we care about our customers and understand that in this difficult time blah blah blah.”
I get that a crisis provides a good opportunity to remind customers that they are still around, but I don’t think an email from a spice shop in Blowing Rock that I’m not even sure I’ve been to is going to make me say, “honey, let’s drive up to that cute little spice shop in Blowing Rock and stock up on some of that Adobo seasoning we like.” On the other hand, there isn’t anything else to do….
It just seems to me like a little bit of piling on. If you want to send me an email when you open, that would be great, thanks! But, if you happen to be having trouble with your X-Rite software, we sympathize. If you happen to be driving through Sanibel, Florida, stop by, even though we’re only doing take out. But no one is offering to bring me toilet paper….
I feel better now, thanks! 🙂
Oh, the photo is a series of “tree portraits” that I took in Hilton Head a few years ago. The tree was just outside our condo, and I took multiple photos of it over the course of a week. These 5 are printed on individual pieces of wood and hang in our bedroom. My only “installation.” 😉
