Thanks for nothing, O'Connors Chrysler Dodge Jeep

We got our stimulus check in the mail today, weeks early!


Except it's not my stimulus check. It's an ad from O'Connors Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Pickford, Michigan. Well, congratulations, O'Connors. Your stupid stunt worked. I noticed your flier and I opened it. Of course, you've royally pissed me off in the process. What good is that?

I'd really like the meet the marketing geniuses who came up with this plan. I guess there was a group of people sitting around a table in a room, and someone said, "I know. Let's piss off all the potential customers." Someone else shouted, "Brilliant!" and everyone else nodded their head in agreement.

Mental note: Never buy a car from O'Connors in Pickford.

    oh my goodness and I so wanted to buy my next car from O'Connors Chrysler Dodge Jeep!! How dare they?

    I get what look like checks in the mail all the time from car dealerships. Now I just shred them without opening the envelope.

    Z.

    I haven't received my check yet!! Darn having an SS# ending in 65

    Bob's number is in the 80s. :(

    I get stuff that looks like checks in the mail all the time, too, but I've never been fooled, maybe because I wasn't expecting anything. I even got a stimulus check copycat in April or May, but b/c I knew they weren't being mailed yet, I wasn't fooled then, either.

    But even though this thing probably looks nothing like what the stimulus checks are going to look like (I figure they're going to look just like tax refund checks), I got fooled. I feel like an idiot, and I'm still pissed. Thanks again, O'Connors.

    Guess I didn't comment on this when I first read it but I thought it was so funny anad could see why it upset you. My husband thought the person who thought that up must have been a super moron!

    This just in: according to the IRS's "Where's My Stimulus Payment?" site, our payment is scheduled to be issued on June 26. It goes on to say that we should contact them if we don't receive our check by July 24. Hooray.
