Dear Esteemed Customer Letters, Volume Two

266 pages3 hours


This is another collection of 150 deliberate lies. The letters supposedly sent by various companies, businesses, professionals, or government agencies are fakes, each and every one. They include responses, alerts, or announcements from many sources to single persons or whole populations.

They are exaggerations in several modes even if some might seem close to what you have seen in actual communications. They are intended to evoke laughs even as they might make you pay closer attention to the wording in routine communications.

None is intended to be a veiled reference to any actual company, business, professional, or government agency or communication. There are no hidden meanings in them. Some respondents make serious points, it is the letters they are reacting to that presented the laughable statements or questions. Naiveté is a reality.
