About a month ago, on a friday after lunch some of the guys came back from lunch and said there was leftover food inthe break room. Some manager bought his team sandwhiches from Jimmy John’s. I don’t like too see food go to waist, so I went and got some. Well the next day I had a sandwhich and some of those Jimmy John’s potato chips. Boy was I shocked when I took that first chip. I thought I might go deaf if I ate them all. I don’t like to stirrup troubble, but I just had to write a letter to the people at the Frito-Lay coropration to warn them of this issue.
I am writing to warn you of a very real and trubbling danger from your product the Jimmy John’s potato chips. They are delicious, but they are to loud and people will be going deaf from eating them.
I understand that snack companies like yourself are under heavy pressure to compete with loud movie theaters, fireworks displays, emergency veicles and explosions of all sorts, not to mention the very loud stereo’s in today’s teen’s cars. But the madness must stop somewhere. If you continue to make your snacks louder, people will be so deaf they will no longer be able to hear them anyway, and then they will quit eating them.
Sure your product does not give people cancer or kill them, that we know of, but deafening people is also pretty bad. You should make a quieter chip before it is to late. Maybe louder is not better. Do not let this same thing happen to you that happened to Pacific Gas and Electric, with the civil law suits because of Julia Roberts.
I was pretty sure that nobody would read my letter, or even respond to it, so I was pretty surprised yesterday when I got this in the mail.

Who says big corporations are heartless and cold? I wrote a letter, and I got a personal response within weeks. Now that is exiting! Plus, the best part, is that I got two free coupons for any snack size Frito-Lays product I want! For lunch on Monday I’m going straight over to Jimmy Johns to see if I can get my chips for free.
