And the NOT HELPFUL sigg reply from Northern Spirit in Canada, plus my reply

Oh, and I've included my reply to her, because it was fun to write due to her message being so not helpful and annoying!

Hi.  The "child" in question is a very cautious 12-year-old girl, and I was with her when it basically fell off.  But thank you anyway.  Sigg has offered a replacement cap, so I guess their feeling is that they'd rather have a happy repeat customer than tell me my daughter is a brute or an idiot who can't open a water bottle.
 
Again, thank you anyway... for not very much help, beyond offering to sell me a new lid.

Good morning Jen! [gaaaack... I  never asked her to call me JEN!  I hate when people are so presumptuous!!!]

 

It is very odd that you’ve had no response, it could be possible that the message was sent to the junk e-mail folder by the server and then deleted automatically. We are very sorry about that. I understand that you have a problem with your bottle, that the lid is damaged. We recommend that you remove the mud cap part of the top, because it has a higher chance of breaking when being handled by a child. If you would like a replacement (since we do not consider this to be a manufacturing defect), please contact the store that you purchased the bottle, or you can buy a different lid of your choice online. I hope this helps!

 

 

Thanks,

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
