An Open Letter to "Bass Pro Shops"

Dear Bass Pro Shop-

I cannot thank you enough for sending me emails on the almost daily basis about the great sales you are having on fishing equipment, even though I unsubscribed from receiving them, nor can I thank you enough for the deluge of biweekly sales catalogs. I really, really want to thank you for the four pound catalog that came in the mailbox last week.

Yes, I did make a purchase from your website. It cost $7.99 on sale and was a fishing line counter. However, said purchase was not made for measuring my fishing line, but purchased as an inexpensive yarn meter. See the "real" yarn meter is $49.99 and this line counter was so cheap, how could I pass it up? It has an adjustable clamp that I think can be clamped to the table I wind on, so why not save $42.00 and try it?

Now that you know the purchase was for yarn playing, ya think you could stop the deluge of catalogs/emails? However, if you should happen to get something else I can use for my "yarn addiction", please let me know.

Sincerely,

Deneen

Haa! That's the funniest thing I've read all day! (Watch out--there are all sorts of insidiously adorable containers and boxes and such to use for needles and notions in fishing catalogs... Don't say I didn't warn you.
