A lesson in strikethrough

Dear annoying esteemed Customer,

We here at our mega-million dollar chain little community want you, the customer, to know that we care about your money feelings.

We are so very sorry that we had to refuse you one of our iguanas. As was explained by the overly annoyed and frustrated sales associate, iguanas need a large habitat. The shit encrusted 10 gallon aquarium terrarium that you described to our slave employee was not suitable for such a magnificent creature of this earth.

We're so very sorry that you didn't believe the overly qualified and vexed employee when she said that iguanas can grow to six feet long. If you would still like to purchase one of our animals, please don't hesitate to stop in and harass ask our employees for help in selecting the appropriate size habitat, lighting, and nutritional requirements that iguanas need.

We dread look forward to having you come visit us again for all your pet needs!


Your local mega million dollar chain pet community favorite, (insert name of petstore here)


  1. "We dread look forward to having you come visit us again...!"
    Hah! Imagine how many other poor employees across the land feel the same way. It probably is more than we care to know. Just another reason to always try to remain as chipper and upbeat as possible. For the downers are all about, ready to ruin what really could be a delightful day with delightful people.

  2. Good tutorial on strike through, I'll have to remember that for when I'm crafting my own letters.

  3. Yea. I'd be lying if I said this wasn't written with a *hint* of frustration and anger at the end of a work shift....

    Guess I'll put that under my "reasons not to blog after work" list.
