The Handyman Club of America
So tonight I was opening my mail while I was sitting in my living room with my wife and a friend. This is not a typical practice for me, but a particular letter caught my eye. It was a direct mail piece sent to me specificly from the Handyman Club of America. Now, subsequent internet searches have told me this really isn’t worth my time, but I was curious so I read a few paragraphs out loud. It seemed pretty legit until I ready the following:
“It’s my pleasure to inform you that YOU HAVE BEEN NOMINATED TO BECOME AN OFFICIAL MEMBER OF THE CLUB…Why you? Well it’s no secret among your friends and family that you are an oustanding handyman.”
Now my questions is this: Should I be more offended that this was a lie (no one really nominated me) or that those in the living room with me laughed in a significant way when I read this statement out loud? You be the judge.
