My friend Teddy recently had an incident with a bag of potato chips. He forwarded me the email some weeks ago and I thought it was so funny I wanted to blog about it. However, he got a chance to post it on Design Observer which is frankly a much more important blog than mine is. So… he posted it there, so I am linking that post. It is pretty amusing check out his letter below, then check out the rest of the correspondence here.
Subject: Complaint About Bag of Chips
Dear Cape Cod Chip Company:
I am attaching a picture of the bag of your usually enjoyable “Cape Cod Potato Chips” that I bought today. The objects sitting beside the bag were its full contents. You will notice that these include a few soggy chips and a full, shriveled potato. What you cannot see is that the potato has a strange, vaguely-chemical smell, and the few chips, in addition to being soggy, are not even salted. Ultimately, the whole package was (rather) inedible.
Will you kindly send me a replacement bag of your chips? Please make sure that if the bag you send has any small potatoes in it, they are salted and odorless. Although I would prefer just the chips.
