I had the chance to be part of an affiliate program to spread the word about a new email newsletter called AppSmitten. AppSmitten reviews the best apps for iphone, ipad and android. I don't usually do these kinds of paid posts, as you all know, but I actually think this is a great idea, and the kind of thing you all might be interested in. I think that because I was interested, and signed right up! If you want to find out more, or receive the newsletter for a while, visit their website through this link.
(Disclosure: I get a small payment when folks use my link to sign up.)
Erin saw this at CTA headquarters in Chicago. I don't know how they are "servicing" customers, or what kinds of questions are actually ok, but the lady was giving Erin a dirty look for taking the picture, so extrapolate as you will.
So some people aren't big fans of me making fun of slogans within quotation marks, but the single-double mismatch here puts it well over the edge into ridiculous. Daniel spotted this in Caulfield, Melbourne, Australia.
Please send your submissions via email to bethanykeeley (at) gmail.com. I look at them all, but it might take a while to get to yours -- sorry! I love you all, but I only have so much energy in a day.
If you want your picture to make the blog DO NOT @tweet them, or leave them in a comment. I need them all in the same place. Make sure your emails are easily distinguishable from spam or viruses (I use gmail web interface, so images get previews).
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands"; that failblog post.
