Very silly, but made me giggle

On un-subscribing from email sales guff on a particular website, I got this.

"You have successfully unsubscribed from receiving emails from Serif Extra and Serif.

We will send you an email to confirm your selection.

Thank you for your time."

How daft is that!!

They want to make sure that it was you who was doing the unsubscribing, and one way is to send a confirmation to the registered email address.

They might take the opportunity to ask you if they were doing anything wrong, but just ignore that and you'll not hear from them again.

Yeah, I understand that, maybe I should have stressed it was really the wording of it that made me giggle. I'm sure they could have worded it better to not sound so self contradictory.

As I said, it's only silly, but even so........

OK, time for breakfast at the German winter festival market. Yum!!
