Until recently, I had almost ALL 20 years of Martha Stewart Living magazines in my home….safe in a custom built bookcase.
And, until recently, I never looked at them.
But I knew TheMartha wanted me to keep them.
But her TV show is just….So. Bad.
She was MEAN to the guests and her staff and the audience. MEAN.
And the magazine had….changed.
So I took bags and bags and bags of those magazines to my Recycling Center. And never shed a tear.
And I took the TV show off my DVR.
This is what put me over the edge.
Followed by THIS friendly gem
I’ve been a loyal subscriber for 20 years.
I bought into it. I bought into the dream. I stuck by her even in Prison. I bought stuff at K-Mart.
I consider these letters to be THREATENING.
My subscription is NOT “overdue”.
I am no longer subscribing. I owe you NOTHING.
You’d THINK that after 20 years, someone would call ME and ask…..”Why are you not subscribing anymore?”
“You are an important component in our business!”
“We’d like you back.”
Instead, a THREAT comes monthly in my mail.
“PAY YOUR OVERDUE BALANCE OR ELSE!”
