thoughtful poster sizings

Yesterday, I visited the Astor website to register to receive their movie calendar in my mailbox each time it is released.

The e-mail went something like this:

I forgot to pick up a poster on Saturday when I was there. I figure
subscribing and having it sent to me is the best way to ensure that I
know what films are on offer each time I look at the back of the toilet
door!

Today I checked my hotmail account and found this response:

Quite right! Did you know that some years ago when we were planning to
increase the size of the calendar that I went around measuring people’s
toilet doors (and ‘fridges) to make sure that it would still fit??

The things we do!

Regards,

[Mr Astor Man]

An unexpected and quirky response to e-mail content that I thought no-one would actually read!

  2. You will end up having a very lovely TORLET by the end of the week at this rate

  3. Huh?
