Sometimes when you try too hard it comes off as insincere. At least it does to me…
ME: Would you kindly explain how this will alter my monthly bill?
Company Chat Responder: I will be more than happy to explain it to you!
Company Chat Responder: It will be a real honor!
A REAL honor?? And then, it got better…
Company Chat Responder: By the way by part of AT&T and me I want to wish a marry Christmas and wonderful day, please do not hesitate to chat with us again!
Maybe it’s just me being my grumpy, bah-humbug self — but c’mon now. While I think it’s pretty cool the wish mentioned Christmas instead of some politically correct ‘happy holidays’ sentiment, I still wanted to type in SCREAMING CAPITAL LETTERS… it’s MERRY Christmas. MERRY… not MARRY.
I guess trying too hard is better than not trying at all. This girl doesn’t care one little bit if she pleases anyone but herself. She doesn’t try at all.
