7,500 Online Shoppers Unknowingly Sold Their Souls
A computer game retailer revealed that it legally owns the souls of thousands of online shoppers, thanks to a clause in the terms and conditions agreed to by online shoppers.
Hilarious! People don’t read their contract when they purchase online and sell their souls to Game Station in the UK http://www.gamestation.co.uk/. The outstanding wording reads…
“By placing an order via this Web site on the first day of the fourth month of the year 2010 Anno Domini, you agree to grant Us a non transferable option to claim, for now and for ever more, your immortal soul. Should We wish to exercise this option, you agree to surrender your immortal soul, and any claim you may have on it, within 5 (five) working days of receiving written notification from gamesation.co.uk or one of its duly authorised minions.”
GameStation’s form also points out that “we reserve the right to serve such notice in 6 (six) foot high letters of fire, however we can accept no liability for any loss or damage caused by such an act. If you a) do not believe you have an immortal soul, b) have already given it to another party, or c) do not wish to grant Us such a license, please click the link below to nullify this sub-clause and proceed with your transaction.”
Bummer for all those people who had other plans for eternity. Though most people probably have no plans for their souls at all.
Selling pros – how long do you hang onto your clients? Do you have a deep enough relationship that you can count on their money for at least a mortal eternity?
After the sale you want to keep engaged, send your buyer unique and funny content like this. Let them know you’re thinking about them.
Does that absolutely delight you when a personal relationship does that? Then do it with these people who feed your family as well.
Keep close to your clients and nobody else will come along and steal their time, money, or souls. Do that well and you’ll spend eternity in selling heaven.
