So I get one of those pieces of mail today (I think it was from GEICO insurance company) that was addressed to “Dan Furman or Current Occupant”. As I looked at that address, I took a moment to think about what that is really saying:
It’s essentially saying “Ok, we’d really like Dan Furman to read this, because he’s a fine individual that we want to do business with. But on the off-chance that Dan is not here, well, ANYONE ELSE will do. Really, anyone living at this address is fine. Tax cheat, axe murderer… whatever. If you’re at this address, even if you’re not Dan, open this up – we want YOU.”
I’m glad Maryellen doesn’t feel this way.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
