You are here

Open letters

Seeing as we've got confessions and problems and issues springing up in threads all over the shop, I thought it might be interesting to have an open letter thread. Cathartic, perhaps. From your mother ruining your wedding, to your boyfriend who can't stop peeing on the toilet seat, or even that guy on the bus who kept making that annoying noise with his mouth, get it out here.

I'll get the ball rolling.

To my dear darling boyfriend,

Just because you are technically 'clean' when you come out the shower, it doesn't mean that I am okay with using the same towel you've been rubbing all over yourself for a month. I know you have others. I bought you two myself. Drag them out from the murky depths of the laundry basket, wash them and allow me the temporary use of a clean one.

Love, Cat

Yes sir, please sir...I never got it. Make sure you send it to "yahoo.co.uk" because if you send it to "yahoo.com" it won't get here.

Dear VW,
It's been a while. I missed you guys. Also how do I view most recent posts first instead of having to click ALL THE WAY TO THE GD END?

Dear Storm,
I sent you a friend request on facebook, but forgot to send a message to let you know it's me. :-P I'm Amy Stephens.

Love,

Dear Vincent,
I don't know what you've been eating lately that's making your poo so toxic, but please stop eating it. Or toilet train yourself. Or both.

Love,
mum

Dear Carmen,
C'mon, you haven't shown up in over a month, don't act all miffed when I cancel your class. You didn't want it when it was there. You're almost 40, it'd be real nice if you grew up someday.

Dear Cristina,
I can't believe you sat there and calmly told me you cheated on the exam! Am I supposed to be impressed? You are so going to fail--do you think your profs don't know the difference between your work and something you got off the Net?
I will help you but I am not going to do your work for you, so take that pseudo-helpless look off your face and get to it. If you ever finish your degree, I pity your students in the future. And anyone who has to work with you.

Dear Karik,
Dude, you rock.

Dear oww,
Yep! I went to see them about a month ago and they stayed afterwards for autographs and photos with the audience. They seem like truly nice guys. I'm going to Sydney next month to see the preview for their Edinburgh Fringe show. Can't wait!

Dear Semiveg,
I don't see a way to PM you, so I'll say it here. THANK YOU for the chipotle powder. It really made the lime pickle wonderful, and this way the 2 different pickles are two different colours--lime is yellowish green, and lemon is red (from paprika and red chili). I owe you huge hugs. And that stuff will be even better in 2 weeks time. I can hardly wait. The only thing that keeps me from putting it away now is knowing how much better it will be with just a little more sun time!
Love love love,
YG

Dear FB,
Oh, okay...I didn't figure that out by myself. I just saw "Inbox" and never thought to click on it. I'm a tecno toddler.
I did send SV a message. Thanks for the help.

Still finding my way arround the new format. Life is crazy and I am not on the computer much so it is a slow learning curve right now. Waves to everyone! Also, it seems a bit slow to move between pages so I am getting frustrated easy. :(

Dear D, When you ask me to help with stuff again, expect a "no". You said before Christmas that you wanted to get to know me better. I invited you for tea. I understand you had some health issues and had to put it off a while but inviting me to help in a group, suggesting we have the tea with the group and then going off on a business trip without telling me was a bit much. Oh, and then the purpose of the meeting changed without notice to me too. That does not include the two instances where you argued my opinions with me when they were obviously personal likes an not "facts". I have decided I know you as well as I want to know you. You will never be more than someone I say "hi" to when we happen to cross paths. - T

Dear self,
Stop freaking out and crying. You litterally have no good reason to be doing so. Sleep now.
-You.

Dear Prestons friends,
Please get out of my house. You're really loud and I have to wake up in 6 hours for my first day of class and my plan was to sleep an hour ago.

Dear Sleep,

Where were you last night? And the night before.....and the night before? Every night I invite you in and every night insomnia shows up in your place. You suck!

He certainly wasn't here last night, either.
BTW I'll take delivery on some rain if you've got any going extra.

Dear Yabbit,

He is quite the elusive bastard, isn't he? I would love to have sent you some of the weekend rain but alas, it has gone away.

Dear Whatever Your Name Really Is,
No wonder your limbacha loncha didn't work, if you "gave Manisha's blog a wide berth." You should have paid attention to the process and pictures, instead of feeling superior to her. Your pickle probably molded because you didn't stir it every day. Or you didn't make sure the jars were dry.
Now you've decided that limbacha loncha is "too hard" to make? Go spend your money on Patak's expensive, second-rate pickle.
That's what happens when you turn up your nose at someone just because they are from a different area than you, or speak another language, or dress differently. You lose out on so much.
I'm a lowly, uninitiated Anglo, and Manisha's recipes work perfectly, every time...as long as you pay attention and follow instructions.
Willingness to learn from others will save you a lot of pain. Try it sometime.

(Not so) Dear Target Corp, I decided to stop by your store instead of where I usually shop because I needed very basic stuff and figured I would save a little money. I can not believe you carded me for canned air. The last time I was carded for anything was about 5 yrs ago at the grocery store for a bottle of wine. They at least have a sign that says if you look under 35, they will card. They were wrong, I was over 40 then! The cashier says she can not do an override. The "store manager" looks to be about the same age as my oldest kid and says it is corporate policy and there is no over ride available. Get real! This tells me corporate does not trust it's managers to hire people who are trustworthy and have at least 1/2 a brain to work register.

Oh, and it is very hard to find a corporate customer service number to call to complain. The "e-mail us" options are very limited and do not allow for any store experience comments. The last time I was mad at a company's lack of customer service, it took me over 10 yrs and a cross country move to step inside one of the stores again and I still only go there when a disabled relative asked me to get her something specifically from that store.
