I recently bought a new shredder after thoroughly destroying my old one, and in doing some research I realized that part of the problem was that the shredder was never properly lubricated. Apparently, it helps to put oil on moving metal parts. Who knew?
Anyway, I wound up buying some shredder oil off Amazon because Staples (where I bought the shredder) wanted an arm and a leg for their house-brand shredder lubricant.
So because I bought shredder oil from them, Amazon sent me the following email on how to accessorize my purchase (click to enlarge):
Yes, that’s right, they encouraged me to accessorize a $10 bottle of shredder oil with a two thousand dollar shredder.
I’d hate to see how they’d encourage me to accessorize a quart of motor oil (“We think you’d like a new Mercedes-Benz!”) or a new remote control (“Wouldn’t you rather just buy a new TV?”).
