A Groupon Breakup?

My email inbox overfloweth. There is a lot of cool stuff in there: new post alerts for blogs I subscribe to, snappy back and forths from my friend, Kelly, important updates about stuff going on at school and with the family. I also get a staggering number of “deals of the day,” from the school, from amazon, and from Groupon, among others. In the interest of taking some sort of control in the areas of my life where I should reasonably expect to be able to do so, I decided to do some unsubscribing. This is what popped up after I ditched Groupon:

And yes, I did click “Punish Derrick.” Brilliant. I have to admit, I loved Groupon the most. Their deals have not saved me that much, and I actually lost money on one that expired (aarrrghhh!) but if you take the time to read their copy, they are very funny and that stuff is free, delivered just about daily on your email or smartphone. Almost makes me want to resubscribe…

    Groupon doesn’t even exist for me around here – all the deals for the day I get are for businesses in cities where I don’t live. But it’s Monday and I would welcome the chance to punish someone, be it Derrick, or someone else…

    So TRUE.

    Thank you again, Middlest! I learned at least a couple of things from you today. I saw poor Derrick’s punishment–AND I punished our prospective renters by not trusting my first forward and sending it twice!!!
