We’ve heard stories lately about people randomly receiving masks and seeds in the mail from China. Well, I received soap…
Hipster Soap Arrives At My Doorstep
A package arrived yesterday addressed to me. It included three bars of soap…that I did not order.
There was no return address on the envelope beyond the company’s address. Inside was a packing slip, but no card or invoice.
The soap was from Dr. Squatch, which appears to be a trendy brand of soap (though I had never heard of it). In addition to the three bars, there was a wooden stand to place them on. In looking online, this kit sells for $29.00.
This is not a paid advertisement. Trust me, I get offers for freebies all the time and turn most down, because I think it makes an unbiased review much more difficult.
But never soap. And this isn’t exactly travel-friendly either. None of my immediate friends or family members fessed up to sending this, so I figure I’d ask you…any reader care to step forward?
People often accuse me of writing stinking blog content but perhaps I just stink altogether? In any case, I do plan to use the soap. It smells good enough. But if this was an effort from Dr. Squatch to try to build a life-long customer, I’ve got bad news for them: I get more than enough free bar soap in hotel rooms to last me a lifetime!
Have you ever received an unsolicited box of soap in the mail with no explanation?
