Customer Support

img src="" border="0" title="We've moved to" alt="We've moved to" />
Today Tesco Customer Support provided me with this juicy number:
"I'm sorry that the item you received an email referring to a refund for your recent order."
I don't care who you are, that's some astonishing gibberish. In case you're wondering what the man was trying to establish, it was, in fact, that we had been mistakenly refunded for some items that we hadn't actually bought. Well done them.

Wow. It's like they just strung together a bunch of random words. I can do that! Bite lavolier monkey potato run for dairy governor!

After reading that article, I think those guys are my new heroes- what legends! I would definitely travel around correcting grammatical errors if I could. What's the point of having a language if we can't even use it correctly? It's up to those of us who have that grammatical ability to help those who don't- particuarly shop owners.
