My nephew, however, hasn't been taught very much tact yet. So this was his response:
"I don't really talk to you." Ouch. That's perversely funny because it's just so wrong and so unnecessarily honest. I'll talk to him about the tactlessness of this, I promise.
But, again, he's 10. What if the entire (presumably adult) marketing and promotions division of a Vegas resort did essentially the same thing? They would call that the M Resort, and it would be, well, somewhat less amusing.
A listener and reader passed this along. On Wednesday afternoon, he got this:
Exciting, right? A MYSTERY BONUS on March 22 and March 29. Wheee!!! I'm sure it's big riches! Thrilling!
Except, just like Facebook's error including that girl as one of my nephew's besties, M Resort wrote back the next day with this gem:
