All this scarytalk needs to be balanced out with a funmail. First though I just wanted to say that even though March 17th is the predicted day for this switch, it will be a staggered change. Most likely, the “BME membership required” condition will only apply during the peak hours at first (since that's what really forced the decision).

So, if you don't have a membership, and you haven't had time to get one, it just means you'll have to use IAM in the morning instead of the evening. I wish I could just pay all your bills myself, but the simple fact is that I can not, and if I am not paying them, and you are not paying them, then no one is paying for them.

Anyway, the funmail. This came to the shop yesterday afternoon:

What about a shirt that sez 'Tattooz Saved My Life'? or mebbe 'My P.A. saved my marriage'?

Think about it. And don't think you can steal those, I wanna be paid if you use 'em!!

OK, I at least thought the second one was kind of funny… But before we could reply, we got this second message this afternoon:

I see you don't even respond to emails. Nice. I'm just trying to help out and give you some ideas and you can't even be bothered to respond. That's great customer service! In fact, you remind me of another great Canadian company...maybe you've heard of Indigo? Yeah, they're just as good as you at getting back to people with ideas. Maybe you should have a conference with that Heather Reismann woman. You could have a big customer service party together. If you want more ideas, I've got them, I'd be glad to help you with them, for a price. Don't doubt me, if you don't want them someone else will, then you'll be out of business.

I'm just trying to keep it Canadian...

Suffice it to say, we've decided against working with this guy! Oh, and if this is “Canadian” behavior, colour me Yankee please! I mean colOR!!!!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
