What is wrong with this world???

Post by Smiletime on Sat Nov 12, 2011 11:50 pm

This has nothing to do with face painting, but I saw something today that just blew my mind. I was driving my daughter to cheer practice when I passed one of those electronic billboards on the highway and this was the actual ad on the billboard...."FAT AND UGLY???.....JUST BE UGLY....SCHEDULE YOUR LIPOSUCTION TODAY" along with the web site for the doctor. Really??? Some idiot of a doctor actually thought this was a good way to attract new patients? It was wrong on so many levels. What a total jerk!

We've seen a couple like that...not that bad but still...you gotta wonder. One was from a small appliance repair shop that specializes in hard to find replacement parts and we are really glad they are still around but for their 25th anniversary they put up a big banner saying "Fixing your Junk for 25 years." Well, shop, you have made me rethink my position and I will throw it out instead of bring it to you... Why not "Keeping your treasures working for 25 years."

Another one, local hamburger joint, says "Scream until your dad gets you a cheeseburger." If my kids screamed at me I would NEVER patronize that business again. How about "Dad, happy kids mean happy mom...bring them in for a cheeseburger."

There is a reason franchises advertise and don't leave it up to the franchisees.

Well said, Denise! Do you have a background in marketing per chance? If not, know that you have some marketable marketing skills. Smile
