Here's one of my wife's attempts at a potential *Christmas card photo*.
She asked them to say "cheese":
After several unusable shots....I had to step in.
I made them instead say "poophead", "fart face", etc.
Notice the difference:
Two other items here:
One, the second shot did indeed become our Christmas card. And the windmill in the background....well, my wife violently insisted on cropping it out. What can I say, SHE'S the household fanatic!
Lastly, I am pissed at Shutterfly. Every year I make remarks about how we have to cut back on how many cards we order and send out; the list gets longer EVERY year. I mean do we really have to send them to our neighbors and local friends? They see our kids all the time! And then there are cards for *our parents' friends*, cards for people who live far away that we haven't been in touch with in YEARS, then those people who send you a card out-of-the-blue to whom you HAVE TO reciprocate.
These things cost $1 each....times 135 ordered....plus 44 cents apiece in postage...equals
But get this, freakin' Shutterfly actually sent us a double order of cards!
So everyone Marginal on our list, everyone ripe for cutting....they got a card, again. (And surely husbands far away will be cursing us for making them reciprocate!)
So with the extra cards, we'll be well over $200 for cards - IN THIS ECONOMY!
Not for anything, but I don't think this is the first time Shutterfly has screwed me with an over-delivery. I think it may in fact be a deliberate scam on their part - to set off a spiral of extra card sending.
