Appalling To The Masses

I've been shopping for a new bedspread, and since I don't enjoy actually getting off my rear end, driving to a store, parking my car, and walking across a parking lot, much less dealing with salespeople, I've been trying to find one online. I found this ad on my favorite site, you know: the one in which you place your bid and hope you've won, only at the very last second someone comes in and outbids you? That's beside the point, actually, of this here post, y'all. Just LOOK at the wording and the spelling. My God. Dude can't even spell chocolate. AND, Dude assumes we don't know what color "chocolote" is. Read the entire advertisement. What are "continuous" states? I'm still laughing and I've read it about fifteen times in hopes that I wasn't really seeing such a poorly-written, ignorant ad! (This is copied exactly as it was found:)


"CHOCOLOTE(BROWN) AND GREY sets ARE BRAND NEW
NO IRREGULARS
THESE ARE FIRST QUALITY SETS
WILL COME TO YOU IN ITS ORIGINAL PACKING
DIRECT FROM THE SUPPLIER
PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR BEDDING CAREFULLY
ALL SALES ARE FINAL- NO RETURNS –

EXCHANGES ONLY IF I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE IN THIS TRANSACTION
BY BIDDING ON THIS AUCTION YOU ARE AGREEING TO THIS
I DO GAURANTEE THAT THEY ARE BRAND NEW !!!!!
SHIPPING TO THE CONTINUOUS USA 48 STATES ONLY
NO PO BOXES ON RARE OCCATIONS , SUPPLIER INVOICES ARE NOT CORRECT
IF THIS SHOULD HAPPEN AND THIS PRODUCT SELLS OUT , I WILL IMMEDIATELY NOTIFY YOU AND RETURN YOUR MONEY IN THE MANNER IT WAS RECIEVED

This might be JUST a guess... but maybe he meant continuous states in that Hawaii and the Virgin Islands aren't included? That might be giving him too much credit though. Not sure.

My favorite part is, "On rare OCCATIONS, supplier invoices are not correct."

It's bad enough he can't spell, but then he pretty much tells you your order is going to get screwed up. Oh, but CHOOSE your bedding carefully, now!

HA!!!
