A while ago, in a fit of goofiness, I noticed that a can of Frito-Lay cheese dip that we had said “REFRIGERATE IMMEDIATELY AFTER OPENING” on several places on the outside of the can. So, of course I emailed them via webform stating something to the effect of heeding the warnings as accurately as possible, but now I was stuck with a can of Frito-Lay cheese in the refrigerator, and I wasn’t quite sure how to get out any dip if the can had to stay in the ‘fridge.
Sadly, I didn’t think to email myself a copy like I usually do, and their reply didn’t include my original message.
Apparently, they get this question a lot, this seems well-practiced…

Heh. Oh well, I’ll have to push some more buttons with them next time. Question for the next list; Why do they add a reference number to their emails if they come from “firstname.lastname@example.org” which to me signifies an end to the conversation?
