owl-don't make me kill you
I hate corporate holiday cards. Don't like receiving them, don't like sending them, don't like getting my picture taken for the department card, don't like dealing with the stalkers vendors who stalk call one regularly all year asking "are you ready to order next year's cards yet? no? okay, I'll call back next week!"

Waste of time and resources to make the cards, waste of time & resources to send them out, waste of time & resources for the Post Office to move them from one point to another, waste of time and resources to open them & display them...

Does anyone really think that our insurance brokers are sitting beside their fireplaces on Christmas Eve thinking warm happy thoughts about doing business with us, the way the cards would imply? 'Cause I kinda doubt it.

Oh, I so adore getting a card from my car insurance company and from Southwest. Having talked to neither of them in five years and being an insignificant part of their revenue, I really feel the love.

The pictures are the best part of it! I enjoy seeing people I have never met and will probably never interact with. It is like stepping onto a random bus and seeing where it drops you off: a laugh a minute.

(yes, they are doing the card thing here, right now, and all the slackers are sitting around chatting about it)
