“I got an email this morning that even floored me, the most cynical person in the world.
It came from a PR person who was pitching me a new product – A shirt. Yes, a shirt. Nothing special about the shirt, it was simply a new style from a new designer. But here’s what gets me: The subject line of the email was: “Hi! Can I borrow your audience?”
(Insert blogging-car-skidding-to-a-halt sound here…)
Can you borrow my… Hold up… WHAT?
Can you “BORROW MY AUDIENCE?”
Are you serious?
OK. Not even taking into account the fact that my audience… IS AN AUDIENCE, and not, say, A SPATULA, no, you can’t “borrow my audience.””
