Perhaps I'm being too harsh.
Anyway, they sometimes send out personal emails to their hundreds of clients (or sheep, whatever they call them). I got one once. It went something like this:
Happy Easter from ZOMBIE FEEDING HEADHUNTERS (a Time/Warner company)!
I'm going to be at E3 CONFERENCE in LOS ANGELES.
Please stop by our booth and have a drink on us! We look forward to seeing you. If you are not going to the E3 CONFERENCE in LOS ANGELES, we'll try to bring back a souvenir for you!
EVIL BLOODSUCKING RECRUITER
I got a bit annoyed by this email and decided to respond in kind. My response was:
Thanks for your $CHRISTIAN_HOLIDAY greetings! I hope you're having a happy $JEWISH_HOLIDAY as well!
I don't currently have any plans to visit $GAME_CONFERENCE_BASED_IN_DISTANT_LAND since I don't have a $CAREER_CHOICE job to pay the airplane fees. Oh, well! If I was I'd offer to kick back many $ALCOHOLIC_BEVERAGE with you and talk about $CAREER_CHOICE like we have so many times in the past.
Well, $RECRUITER_NAME, gotta go! There's so much email for me to answer!
Not my most original work, but I love the conceit. I still use it sometimes.
