I had an email from a customer this morning. The gentleman described how his evening went on the previous day.
It went like this…
He finished his day at work and went home as normal, his wife was due to meet friends for an evening meal so it was his job to get the children to bed.
Everything went to plan, the younger of the two children went down at 7 and the older down at halfpast, including a story. He went instanlty into the converted garage-gym to have a 45 minute workout, then up to have a shower, not before putting a lamb pie in the oven. Down he came fresh from a shower and opened a bottle of wine and poired a glass.
His pie was done, the ovens alarm telling him so, and down he sat in front of the TV to devour it. He then went on to tell me that whilst waiting for the pie to cool down he quickly sent a textcard to his sister to wish her good luck for her new job. He went to eat his pie after doing so and it burnt his mouth.
No, I will not buy you a tub of savlon to ease the burning pain, you knew textcards were quick and simple, so deal with it.
Textcards do not come with warning signs, just be sensible.
