Are You A Laundry Service?

This was the subject line to a recent email. It took me a second before I remembered that I owned a blog and it's title referred to laundry. Oops.
Hey Jennifer,

I'm reaching out to you because Thumbtack is getting a lot of job leads for laundry services, and I'm looking for another laundry service who is interested in taking on more clients.

After checking out your website I think you are a great fit for Thumbtack and I'd love to start sending you job leadsPlease fill out a few details about your skills and rates, and I'll start forwarding you potential new clients.

If you have any questions about what Thumbtack can provide, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks,
Heather 
Oh, Heather...I promise, you don't want to send me any leads for laundering jobs. I don't sort out my whites and my running gear has perma-funk.

And wouldn't you be better off pursuing someone with a molehill of laundry?

I don't want to put a damper on the laugh generated by this email, but...

It just goes to show what I've been saying all along, "Marketing is invading every stinking corner of our lives!"
