I'm sure alot of you have bought from CDbaby....

Expecting a "blah blah blah expect your delievery in X days" you can probably tell i LOLd at this email i received.


<item description and pricing here wink.gif >

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with
sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure
it was in the best possible condition before mailing.

Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over
the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money
can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party
marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of
Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in
our private CD Baby jet on this day, Wednesday, January 2nd.

I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did.
Your picture is on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all
exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sigh...

Its certainly alot more refreshing than your standard email notification - maybe others could learn a thing of two from it biggrin.gif

hmm...if amazon started doing this i wouldnt find it as comical...

i guess some sites could tend slightly towards this way instead of the standard boring ones but i guess the email has to reflect the site.

Amazon = not funny

CDbaby = pretty hilarious
