Happy Birthday To Nobody

I don't know if it's a mark of "wise spending" or "cheapness" when a company buys a huge box of generic birthday cards to save money. I was sending out birthday cards today to various employees and opened up a flimsy paper card with the hideous balloons on the front. I read the birthday greeting and was fairly amused and surprised by what it said:

"A person with
your personality
and disposition
deserves the best
birthday ever.
Have a great one!"

Uh huh. Well. That's pretty much the worst card of all time. Though they may "deserve the best birthday ever," this card will certainly make it the complete opposite. This card had to have been written at 3 in the morning by a conference room full of pissed off greeting card employees on a deadline who just didn't give a crap anymore. Truly awful. Well, I'm sure glad this card is going out about two weeks late, or it might have actually ruined their birthday.

I can make cards and sell them to your company. That would be so amazing: hand drawn cards from your office.
