Upsetting advertising
(01.04.2009)
To me the advertising that is covering the floor in the hallway is synonymous with a waste of nature´s resources and unnecessary and annoying extra work. It´s pretty fascinating that some poor fellow struggles with these pieces of paper and carries them up three flights of stairs, just so that I can collect the crap in a paper bag and carry it down again.
Since Korvas arrived, we are completely flooded with advertising for baby things. It is prams, nappies, clothes, toys, food, insurances etc. And everything, absolutely everything is addressed to Lisa. Not even on the tiniest little piece of paper do I find my name. One would have thought that at least advertisements for masculine associated products would be addressed to me. “Dear Daniel, now we have a 50% discount on automatic weapons for kids. Buy now and don´t let your child go empty handed!". But no, not even that. That´s extremely upsetting, it´s my baby too, for Christ sake!
WE DADS ALSO WANT THINGS THAT WE DON´T WANT!
