Subject: Refund Request for “Gun-Free Zone” Signs

Attention: Customer Service

I ordered three signs from you, and I am very unhappy with your product. The signs say, “Notice: Gun Free Zone.” They are aluminum, size 10 x 14 inches. I put one on my front lawn, one in my bedroom window, and another on the back door of my house. These signs did not work as your website said they would!

The first week I had no problems. But on Friday March 3, I woke up at midnight and could hear breaking glass! I went downstairs and there were two masked men with guns in my living room. I was so scared I literally crapped my pants. I couldn’t call 911 because my cell phone was in the living room, so I went back upstairs and cleaned myself in the bathroom. When the two masked men left, my television, computer, Blu-ray player, and cell phone were gone, and my kitchen window was smashed!

Excerpted.  Read more at:  https://christopherjohnlindsay.wordpress.com/2018/03/10/gun-free-zone-sign/

From one of your other articles:

Quote
A 2015 survey of 100,000 Europeans found that 40 per cent of women and 62 per cent of men don’t wash their hands after going to the bathroom.

It’s a bad idea because it is a sin to bear false witness.  :laugh:
