Palmolive

I think writing to companies to praise or criticize them is genetic. My dad does this all the time. I, too, cannot help myself especially when it's so darn easy online. My latest:
Dear Palmolive,

I love your Spring Sensations detergent. I do have some feedback though. Once the bottle is half empty and not easily weighted down, the bottle tips over really easily and it drives me nuts. I'd recommend designing the bottle so that it is shorter and wider and thus more stable and less likely to tip over and fall into my sink. Short and stout in a stylish container (like the Target Method line of products) with a pump would be even better.

Sincerely, Vanessa Au
BTW, whatcha think of my new layout? My old one was hurting my eyes and I needed a late night diversion from working on the thesis.

This post reeks of "Grandpa Simpson" hahaha. In a good way of 'course. BTW, new layout looks good. Sorry to be a grammar nazi, but you misspelled my blog. It's "quandARY" not "quandRY." hahaha, i know it was a typo. Did I just misspell "misspelled?"

Cool layout -- still waiting for the sprinkle of humour though :-)

I do like the new layout although I do miss the Vancouver skyline shot. You have moxie, yep... moxie. I love that you write companies. I sent of an email to Disney a couple weeks ago that I need to follow up on. You rule.

Van said...

Anaud, how's married life. The humour is sprinkled, so it comes in little bits here and there but sometimes it's just bitching and complaining.

Egan, no you rule. I had to look up the word moxie. :P Hmm maybe I'll work that Vancouver skyline into my banner but in a cartoonish way.

Van said...

GT, all fixed :) Hmmm I think I'm the only one who doesnt get Simpson jokes because I never really got hooked on that show enough to know the kerjillion characters. South Park, however, is on my Tivo. You know what I misspell most is that stupid word verification thing on this blogger comment page.

Change is always good. The new layout looks good! ;)
