In my personal life, I’m used to getting vitriolic letters from people. I’ve seen them all, from debt collector screeds via FedEx to Cat Fancy missives about my unpaid subscription. But never before have I gotten negative feedback from one of my coworker’s moms. So it was quite a surprise last week when Lindsay, who is our assistant operations manager and sits about three feet away from me, forwarded an e-mail for me from her mom, regarding the fact that we never actually picked a winner for the Luscious Verde haiku contest. An excerpt:
You are a disappointment, a fake and a fraud. You demean yourself and the company you represent. Shame on you!
Wow. Pretty rough stuff. It would have stung more had what she been saying was false. Which it isn’t. We held a contest and never chose a winner. My bad. My bad! Can you hear that, Lindsay’s mom?!
So we’re proud to announce the winner of the contest: Ashley, from “Store Withheld.” So Ashley, if you’re reading this, please contact us for your Luscious Verde Fun Happy-Time Gift Basket. And Lindsay’s mom, watch your mail for a special surprise. (No, not anthrax.) We’re sorry for any mental trauma and hardship this whole sordid affair has caused. We throw ourselves on the mercy of the world of custom stationery.

Anyway, keep your eyes out for big holes if you’re visiting Cleveland in the near future, and watch out for super-cute promotional items landing in your UPS boxes. Don’t worry – the promotional items aren’t there to help raise money to save our crumbling city, they’re simply a small gift to show our love.
