Year 2- Day 154- NEW item…

by admin on April 21st, 2005

Today I’m going to start a new feature that may be a weekly event, or maybe more, depending on popularity, and time constraints.

I don’t have a good title for it yet, but I’ll explain the premise.

Last year I started writing letters to different companies, basically complimenting or complaining about a product or service, in hopes of gathering free stuff. Most of the time the company was pretty good at throwing me some free coupons, or something. I was thinking about that the other day, and it led me to thinking, I wonder what my students would do if they wanted to complain, or compliment a company? It made me laugh, and caused me to think… I bet that’d be a great experiment, to see how differently the responses were to a letter, based on education level (or perceived education level)

So that’s it…

I’m going to pick a company I have a legitimate gripe or compliment of, and send them two letters… one from myself, as a college educated adult. The other letter would be what a typical kid here would write to a company, if he or she were actually that motivated. I’ll post the resutls.

The first letter will be up today.
