On Mother’s Day, there’s nothing better than a heartfelt card to celebrate all the hard work our moms have done for us. And boy, there are a lot to choose from! There are cards to make her laugh, cards to make her cry, cards that trash her shitty husband for not doing chores, and cards that encourage her to drink alcohol. But where’s the card for making her feel baffled, and just a little bit distressed? Where’s the card that says “Mom, I love you, and therefore need you to feel as anxious about our politically polarized country as I do?”

These are all gems but I’m particularly fond of Mike 13's, the fourth one, who closes his sentiment not with the stale, “Sincerely yours,” but with “(WTF)“.

In my many, many professional roles, I’m sometimes asked to review pitch letters. They are typically written by younger Marketing people, or sometimes worse, by middle-aged Marketing people who affect the tone of what they think a young Marketing person would say. I’m given a brief: This is who we’re pitching, this is what they do, and this is what we want to sell them. What do you think about this?”

I have yet to see (WTF) as a closing but it won’t be long now.

(WTF)
