Funniest order confirmation ever.Posted: October 19, 2012
Yesterday I ordered a CD from the website CD Baby. Today I received a confirmation email, the funniest thing I’ve read in weeks. I admire businesses that inject a wee bit of surrealism and comedy into boilerplate correspondences and day-to-day commerce.
I’ve posted the message here. Shop at CD Baby! We need to encourage this sort of thing.
Thanks for your order with CD Baby!
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 world-renowned packing specialist lit a local artisan 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, October 19, 2012.
We hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. In commemoration, we have placed your picture 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!
We miss you already. We’ll be right here at http://cdbaby.com/, patiently awaiting your return.
The little store with the best new independent music.
