Typically, unsubscribing from unwanted email either turns me momentarily jubliant at my triumph over the robots, or makes me grumpy that it’s taking the 0.05 seconds out of my day that I otherwise would be using…doing something else. ..really important…
However, today, I laughed. I unsubscribed from a Groupon Goods email, and was met with a page telling me that it was “Derrick” who thought it would be a good idea to send it to me, and I could “punish Derrick” now. Sure! I’ll punish Derrick! Bastard!! I hit the button and a 10s video plays of a colleague walking up to him, berating him then throwing a cup of liquid over him.
AHA, how I chuckled in my evilness. Then felt instantly guilty for poor D and considered resubscribing.
Now that’s good…..
