Oh dear no…

Carte Noire, with your advertising you have guaranteed that I will never try your coffee. Even though you included two free samples on the flyer.

And it’s not just because we have a Nespresso machine that creates a pleasing variety of coffees — long before we bought that I got into the habit of the first drink of the day being a mug of instant coffee.

So my first reaction was along the lines of “oh, a different coffee to try”.

But then I read the blurb.

“Immerse yourself in a world of seduction with Dominic West, star of The Wire, as your host. Visit www.cartenoire.co.uk and he’ll read love scenes to you from a mix of classic, modern and emerging novels.”

Pass me the bucket…

One thought on “Oh dear no…

  1. Who writes this stuff? How about the description of dishes on menus in some chains – ‘A delicate marriage of tarragon and basil’ – or some such tosh. What kind of marriage is that, I wonder? The names of chocolates in a box is another one . . . Is someone paid to write that garbage. And there are us poor struggling authors, barely earning a crust . . .
