It began "We are doing a survey for Spring 2011 ( and we want your views.

Got all excited and thought it might be a chance to tell them about the crap clothes..
the 2 questions were:
1. have you done anything fun or crazy with your old catlogue
2. If Johnnie was an agony aunt, what question would you like to ask him?

I ask YOU!

Ask him why he makes such shit clothes and tell them you rolled the catalogue up and used it as a sex aid.

Or perhaps that's not what they meant?

1. i ripped out the pages and used them as toilet paper. unfortunately, du to the shitty patterns on most of the clothes, I could not tell if I'd wiped sufficiently.

I just filled this in...

"Go back to basics and improve the design of your clothes. All this marketing nonsense is frankly annoying"

I said it was a ridiculous waste of time and why wasn't the survey about clothes.

Oh I've just got the email - opened it on my phone and thought I'd do it properly on the pc later - shan't bother if that's all they're asking!

no no, you are duty bound to fill it in now!

oh that's really stupid isn't it!?

no eh 'difficult' questions then, like "why don't you do a shorter length trouser?"

The marketing is really annoying. the whole quintessentially English rose with three children, a range rover and an aga thing, (modelled by a danish girl of 19 called Mette)
