Boobs: They’re Just Like Braces

The United States Senate Federal Credit Union is making our week!

Earlier this week we got our mangy mitts on a new USSFCU flier featuring a headless buxom blonde. Yesterday, an online petition began circulating that demanded the credit union apologize for the mailing.

In response, the organization sent this email to customers:

Good Afternoon [XXX],

Thank you for your feedback regarding our recent mailings.

We sincerely regret the message we conveyed did not meet with your approval.   Our marketing efforts have evolved with the times as we seek to relate to various life events of our membership.   These may include paying for such traditional things as for weddings, children’s braces, and purchasing autos but also more personal activities that many people seek nowadays.   We recognize any of these may not directly relate to anyone’s personal situation, and we will make every attempt to exclude you from future mailings.

We appreciate you letting know of your concern, and will keep your feedback in mind in the future.

Sincerely,

Sophia Fearwell

Sr. Member Services Officer

 

HOH’s shorter, revised version of the USSFCU response:

Dear Offended Customer:

If you don’t like our marketing strategy, please unsubscribe.

Sincerely,

The U.S. Senate Federal Credit Union

    It appears that the US Senate Federal Credit Union adheres to the same policy as a considerable number of those in the US Senate. “So what if you are the ones who made it possible to be here, we’re going to do whatever WE want to do. If you don’t like it, tough! Please quit bothering us with your contrary requests and comments.”

    When you mentioned “boob” and Washington, DC, that’s not the kind of boobs I was thinking of. Nevertheless they got the headless part right!
