CVS is so thoughtful: They sent me a coupon for denture cream.

I’d love to know which of my purchases triggered that marketing miracle.

Was it the Band-Aids? The many vats of shampoo I’ve purchased over the years? The holiday cards, disposable razors or deodorant? That impulsive bag of M&Ms?

The feminine care products?!

Does anyone there know they just sent a 46-year-old woman a coupon for denture cream?

Do they care?

And most importantly, am I too old to tell them: “Bite me”?

  1. Next thing you know you will be getting an invitation in the mail for AARP 😉

    • Ken: Thanks to Basil I am a member of AARP! There’s a whole trailing spouse thing — you can imagine how I felt about that card coming in the mail when I was … 40!

  2. You should mail the coupon back with a big “no thank you”. And still tell them to “bite me”
