Due to the programatic goodness of the Internet, I recently received a slew of automated birthday greetings. Subjects like “Happy Birthday from USAA Insurance” and “Happy Birthday from BMW F800 Riders Forum & Registry” abounded in the ol’ inbox. While I also received plenty of well wishes from friends and family alike, due to the Martin Luther King holiday and perhaps the weather, as of my birthday itself I had received just one card:
Inside: Thanks for not dying!
I got one of these last year too, so it seems that as long as I keep paying my mortgage, I’ll keep getting at least one birthday card every year. Of course, if there’s a birthday card less sincere than the one from your mortgage broker, I can’t think of it.
