So Long, Suckers!
Debbie Galant

Nice piece, Debbie. I hassled with them on more than one occasion back in the 70s because you had to send back the reply card with “No Selection” marked on it by the due date. And they lost quite a few of mine. I finally got them off my back with a letter threatening to get into their IBM computer system and perform an electronic prefontal lobotomy. They thought that was amusing and asked my permission copy it in their Customer Service newsletter. I then got put on their “pull” system where you had to specifically order something every month or they would send you nothing.

Like what you read? Give Bill Carlson a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
