This Week’s Biggest Achievement…

I usually judge a good week by the amount of times I’ve avoided publicly falling over, getting bollocked by my boss or slamming doors after domestic arguments.

But this week I received an email which could not make me feel prouder.

Thanks very much to the Stateside dog lover who felt compelled to message me to tell me that my Sorry Your Dog Is Dead card is mean, stinging me with a “shame on you.”

What I want to know is how can something which was only intended as a specialised sympathy card provoke so much upset?
