The phone company

I read Michelle's post with interest this week, as my phone company has been exceptionally nice to me. Exceptionally.

I don't know if it's some sort of end of year promotion, or after strike deal or an attempt to fight other service providers, but this is the list of stuff that has been sent or been given to me from the phone company this week:

1) Magnetic Gund stuffed animal in the shape of a monkey, via registered mail, last Saturday. This came with a 2007 calendar and a thank you note for being a good customer.
2) Chocolate bar - Tuesday morning, handed to me on my way into work after getting off the train. Outside wrapper and logo imprinted on the bar were both of the phone company.
3) Plastic lawn flamingo, handed to me on the way home from work on Wednesday afternoon. Pink, plastic and came with 2 free metal legs.

I have no idea what's up with the phone company.

Oh - and for those who are interested, the kitty pic was taken when the kitties just woke up from a nap. They aren't really that amazing that I can stick stuff on their head and they just don't notice. They noticed, but were too sleepy to complain much.

My mom got a monkey, too (which she gave to me...I have a collection of animals from said phone company).

I got a letter from the company that allowed me to choose one of 3 free gifts...the chocolates were tempting, but I went for the $25 Amazon gift certificate!!!

It must be a Canada thing, I've never heard of anyone in the US getting any sort of gift from the phone company. I'm not a bad utility user, I swear! It's not. my. fault.
Where's MY monkey??!!!!
