|If nothing else, at least I am creative|
Back a few
years ago, I wrote a letter to Ben & Jerry's ice cream company.
On the right is a copy of the letter I sent and received back.
They now sell it on their website: http://store.benjerry.com/pintlock.html
I also sent an idea to Swiffer to make children's clothing. I figured if kids are going to get into everything anyway, might as well clean it too!! Swiffer hasn't gotten back to me yet.
I also have a suggested new mascot for the U.S. postal service, but I have yet to submit the idea.
I need a role-model
I submitted online to Ben and Jerry's Flavor recommendations
is not really a flavor idea, but a necessity I truly believe. The ONLY
problem with the "Ben and Jerry's" ice cream is the mental
turmoil I go through after I have purchased it. I currently live with
three other guys between 21 and 25, and I live in constant fear of leaving
my Ben and Jerry's alone in the freezer!! I can't concentrate on anything
while I am at work, or out running errands. When the freezer opens, and
someone catches a mere glimpse of that golden little container of eternal
goodness, everything else in the freezer comparatively looks like tofu. I
have tried my attempts of distraction, for example, putting a carton of an
expensive Seattle based coffee manufacture's ice cream right in front of
my little treasure, but to no avail!! Getting to the point, I STRONGLY
suggest selling "Ben and Jerry's" in stainless steel containers with little padlocks on them.
I can understand the price difference with this suggestion, but I think we
would all benefit greatly from it. It would give the world a much needed
peace of mind.
bulletproof stainless steel container might not be a bad idea either!!
you for your time Doug Hertle
was getting a bit worried we'd never find you!
I called, e-mailed and finally sent you a letter.
Good to hear from you!!
as you've seen the "Pint Lock" has become reality.
It took us about a year (seriously) to get here, but after vigorous
development and testing the ultimate solution in Ben & Jerry's pint
security is here!
We found the stainless steel to get a bit too cold in the freezer,
so we had to go with plastic.
we received your idea way back when and thought it was so ridiculously
funny, we had to make one.
We just started selling it and so far it's been a real hit.
We'll send you some of the PR it's generated! To show our
appreciation for your idea, we'll be sending you some real love in the
form of tons of nifty B&J graft!
What t-shirt size are you?
you very much for the idea!
