I work in information technology, as I've mentioned before. This means loads and loads of vendor spam. One of the worst is APC, also mentioned before, as they send me their catalogs to 4 different variations of my name or title to the same address, thereby adding to their marketing costs and paper recycling center work.

Today I get an email from them, here's the header with time send information:

Nice job, dillholes.  Request a response by 3pm, send it at 3:09pm...reminds me of the Guthy/Renker weekend TV where "if you respond in the next 30 minutes, we'll throw in blah blah blah." 
APC, you have too much marketing money.  You need to beat down your marketing gurus and fire them.
