thirteen problems with the flyer left on our car window
(week #34)
in the fifteen or so minutes we were in target, our car got flyered!

1. first off, we weren't in the store long enough to get flyered

2. the flyer was for a psychic. andrew and i had the same initial thought: if you are a real psychic, shouldn't you know which cars to put the flyer on and which to avoid?

3. the flyer had no business name

4. the flyer had no address for the business

5. since i am not a psychic, i cannot take the flyers advice and "come on in today" since i don't know where to go. i can't even look it up in the phonebook

6. the flyer had poor grammar: don't chance you life's fate

7. the flyer didn't mention anything about lifting gyspy curses

8. the flyer didn't mention anything about helping me to be a better gambler

9. it claimed to be rated #1 in las vegas, but #1 what? rated by who? rated #1 bakery by the diabetics association?

10. the flyer was placed on the passenger side, which makes it really unlikely that the driver would see it. shouldn't a psychic know there was only one person in the car?

11. the flyer promised to tell us the past, present, and future. well, i think i can tell the present. that's not tricky at all.

12. there were no prices listed

13. the flyer did say it was for lauren and that's not a good psychic name. she's not even madam lauren.

    At least you got a bit of scrap paper, suitable for phone emessages, shopping lists etc.

    The sad part is how many people fall for charlatans like that.

    that's kinda sad. It makes me think of the commercial about the internet scams that don't work in person - I don't know if you know which ones I'm talking about. They are just not very slick sales people.

    Too funny.

    My poor neighbor did a flyer for her baking business last year and forgot to put her phone number on it. Whoops!

    Stupid is, as stupid does, eh?

    I usually throw away those flyers anyway, but when they have obvious grammatical mistakes, too, I just roll my eyes.

    Happy TT!
