Coeur d'Alene Chamber WTF
I love recieving the weekley enewsletter from the Couer d'Lane Chamber of Comerce. Not for the area info, but to find all the typos and grammar goofs. After weeks and weeks of having these very unprofessional emails arrive in my inbox, I'm throwing my arms in the air and posting them on here. My opinion: if an organization is receiving over $300,000 in grant funds from the State of Idaho to promote Coeur d'Alene, they really should ask the spelling and grammar challenged head of all things technology to have someone proof his work before he hits "send".
Here we go...
"As the summer season winds down and the crowds slowly disapear. This may be the best time to visit
Coeur d'Alene!" WTF??
"With the average tempertures in the mid 70's" I had no idea temperatures in the 70s were so possessive.
"Take a lake cruise, a stroll downtown to check out the unique shops and dining experience." Ouch... just, OUCH!!
"As a virtual local you will learn where all the best deals are and secrete local spots from other locals on Facebook. " Please, please tell me what is being secreted from local spots? Pus? Blood? Generalized ooze? Money from tourist pockets? Never mind. Please don't tell me. I really don't want to know.
"If you have any questions, concerns or just want to let me know how good of a job I did! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org" Dude, do you really want us to let you know! How good of a job you did? You have been spelling "Coeur d'Alene" correctly consistently. We appreciate that.
