Loss

So one of my best friends' dog died this morning. I was at loss for what to do, so I looked online to check out the eCards for a simple greeting. One even had ones for loss of a pet, so I looked at the cards and there was one that was really nicely worded and drawn. I thought "ok, let's do this one." Then it played this interestingly sad church music.

I thought, "no...not right." So I looked down and noticed that it had options for different songs:
  • First option: jaunty little walk in the park -- Not appropriate.
  • Second option: jaunty day at the beach with dog barking -- Nope, not appropriate.
  • Third option: jaunty version of "How much is that doggie in the window?" -- What the fuck?!?
  • Fourth option: jaunty version of "Where has my little dog gone?" -- You have got to be FUCKING JOKING ME!?!?

Ok, there are some SICK FUCKS at a place that rhymes with Poo Mountain. I mean SERIOUSLY?!? Seriously.

Trust me, the irony is not lost on me. I send out ironic cards for birthdays, engagements, bar mitzvahs, Christmas, and others.

So, needless to say, I'm making my own card.

I'm quite sure (at a place that rhymes with Ballmark) they couldn't do any better. Spent the better part of a week on the phone with their customer "service" and they can't even pronounce the word "carD".

Hugs to manda.
